Beloved by Anglo-Saxon expats, up-and-coming influencers and pancake-philes, Hollybelly has been delighting guests in a bigger space on rue Lucien Sampaix since the summer of 2017. In their friendly dining room (cozy alcoves, plants, service and music in franglais), Nico Alary and chef Sarah Mouchot welcome you in all day long, with the very best that comfort food has to offer! Try the Savory Stack that never goes out of style – fluffy pancakes with bacon from The Beast, fried eggs, bourbon butter and maple syrup (€13.50); an Eggs & Sides that you compose yourself – two eggs either poached, scrambled or fried, with two sides of your choice: homemade fennel sausage, hash browns, baked beans, sautéed mushrooms with garlic and thyme, bacon, marinated fennel or salad (€13.50); huge dishes of the day – like a César salad with lots of anchovies, homemade croutons and crispy chicken (€14.50); and don’t forget about the homemade desserts, like sesame-cardamom cookies (€2.50) or carrot cake (€4). To drink, there’s Le Parti du Thé tea, Belle Brûlerie coffee, Deck & Donohue beer brewed in Montreuil (€5 for 330 ml), or an excellent Holy Bloody Mary (€10)! À la carte €22-35. // C.D.
