Here’s a wonderful coffee shop (Swedish furniture, addictive breakfasts and snacks, legendary cakes, cookies and kannelbülle…) whose virtues as an excellent lunch spot shouldn’t be overlooked! For our springtime lunch, chef Connie Zagora (ex-Ritz) really hit the mark: a delicious cluster of crisp haricots verts, presented in a chilled lemon balm and pistachio broth; a beautiful hake steak served flame-charred with buttery cabbage, a reduced fish fumet and black vinegar jus, plus a citrus condiment; before an incredible special for chocolate addicts by pastry chef Lorent Ozan combining creamy cacao ice cream, a siphoned mousse, a cocoa nib tuile and a brownie! // A.S.
