If you're not one who enjoys a good wait for an amazing meal, arrive before the doors open at 10AM for the Sunday Brunch. The coffee has been described as both the best and most expensive in Paris. The seasonal menu is the star at this place and anything you order tastes as great as it is aestically pleasing. If you're tired of a light breakfast a la a croissant and a small coffee, and are hoping for a large hearty meal, this is the brunch spot you've been waiting for!
Head to Holybelly for the cachet and people watching as much as for the food. Local celebrity and Australian ex-pat Nico Alary, sporting his trademark forearm croissant tattoo, greets you from behind the bar as he pulls shots of espresso. His wife, Sarah Mouchot, can be found in the kitchen, whipping up and expediting plates of food with the precision of a quartermaster.
Design enthusiasts and foodies alike will swoon over Holybelly's people-pleasing menu featuring Anglo favourites like pancakes, fried eggs, granola and kale salad.
Bonus: The restaurant staff speaks English, which can come as a welcome respite in Paris sometimes.
