Organic coffee shop and canteen in the heart of the 5th arrondissement
Located a few steps away from the famous Sorbonne, the Pantheon and the ‘Jardin du Luxembourg’, in the heart of the 5th ‘arrondissement’ of Paris, Chez D. is a cosy organic canteen with a soul. The owner, Diénaba (which the place is named after), and her friendly co-worker Laura, - who is, without any doubt, the most smily person you will have the chance to come across in Paris - master the art of making you feel home.
Food-wise, you won’t be disappointed. The range of products you can take a peek at through the window display varies daily and evolves throughout the seasons. Diénaba prides herself in concocting her delights using organic ingredients. Everything here is homemade : salads, sandwiches, soups, quiches, pastries, cakes, cookies, hot dishes with a dainty dash of west-african and italian flavours (reflecting the origins of our two food-enthusiasts)... and the list goes on ! Their simple, authentic and genuine cuisine will leave your stomach and taste buds satisfied while pleasuring your sight. To accompany your meal, you can choose from no less than 16 different blends of tea, organic wine, belgian beer and fresh juices. In the summer, you can sit outside on the small terrace and enjoy the sun while sipping on a fresh drink and chatting with locals.
Whether you are looking for a place to have a healthy lunch, a lazy week-end brunch or a sweet bite for tea time, this parisian hidden gem is most definitely not to miss out on !
