Our favourite gourmet cafe in ParisWe discovered this place by pure chance. Last February, on our very fist day at Paris Fashion Week, we didn't know where to eat, so we headed to Place de la Madeleine to visit its amazing gourmet shops and buy some little treats. But in our way we found this fantastic place. We liked it so much that we came back the next day for brunch! Paris-London is a lovely cafe with a perfect warm French atmosphere. Wall tiles, boxes full of baguettes, perfectly dressed and charming waiters, beautiful mix and match wooden chairs and great food. It's perfect. And they have free wi-fi so it's great to update your Facebook status and brag about the great time you are having in Paris, do a little bit of food instagramming or check your work emails.
We chose the cheese burguer and the madame cheese burguer. They were the perfect size, so we left satisfied but not full, which was surprising after eating hamburgers! The buns were slightly toasted, the meat was done to perfection and beautifully seasoned, the french fries on the side were thin and crunchy and they came with a soft delicious tartar sauce. On Sunday we came back for brunch and had the best poached eggs à la Bénédictine that we've ever eaten. I highly doubt that we will ever find a better recipe. We’re determined to come back to try the charcuterie and foie gras platter. And we'll see if there is any room for dessert... The tartin cake was promising! I bet the low calories dishes they have on the menu are delicious too!
