Ten Belles Bread
Plenty of Parisians head over to Ten Belles Bread just for their beautiful loaves (organic sourdough, rye and focaccia…), but Alice Quillet, Anna Trattles and Anselme Blayney’s bakery is also worth visiting at lunchtime. The day we went, we chose a crispy toastie sandwich with kale, Comté, lemon and spinach (€6.90) from the window display, along with a slice of chocolate cake topped with a yogurt cream (€4.50), which we gobbled down in the big industrial space (metal furniture, exposed pipes, Tolix chairs) which extends onto huge courtyard terrace. The salads of the day aren’t bad either (carrot, fennel, apple and sunflower seeds, €5.50), much like the homemade pies (lamb collar, yellow carrots and kale, €8.50), or the pastries when you’re feeling like a little snack (lemon cake for €4, chocolate-sesame cookies for €2). To drink: iced Uma basil and yuzu tea (€4), Belleville Brûlerie espresso (€2.50), etc. Sandwiches from €3.75 to €6.90, salads from €5.50 to €11.50. // J.S.
