In this cool little spot (a golden logo written out in calligraphy, bare walls, copper pipe light fixtures) there’s no need to hum Ob-la-di ob-la-da if you want a smile from the barista and a snack that feels like breakfast in L.A.: an avocado and pomegranate tartine given a twist with some chimichurri and crowned with an optional poached egg (+€3); a mess bowl of glazed carrots, arugula and crushed hazelnuts over a creamy bed of hummus and pita bread; a PB&J (homemade peanut butter and jam) made on brioche bread, or a colorful smoothie bowl of the day, which might include raspberries, bananas, almonds and peanuts, for example. The pastries, which are almost all vegan, are served at the counter any time of day: banana or chocolate cookies, pie, a cake of the day. // T.V.X.

FEELING THIRSTY? There’s coffee, obviously, obtained via various extraction methods: Aeropress (€5), V60 (€5), Chemex to share (€8); plus, a creamy chai latte (€6) or fresh Meneau juice (€5).

PRICE: Tartines €10, bowls and granolas €12-14, desserts €4-6.

Late-night munchies?
