From croissants and baguettes to moules and caviar, Parisians are great social eaters! Eating out should be a key part of your Parisian trip when there are endless French delicacies to try. We have a monthly round up to begin your ultimate Paris culinary checklist.
Located in the trendy area of Le Marais, start the day at Cafe Charlot, a must stop for brunch. With large leather benches, wood panelling and a magnificent old-fashioned bakery front, this traditional cafe has an old-school Parisian feel.
Not only highly recommended for brunch, but this haunt is perfect for an afternoon glass of wine and some moules frites. Located opposite the Enfants Rouges market, choose to sit outside (under cosy heaters in the colder months) where you can people watch and see the world go by.
