If you are looking to add a bit of extra PaZAZZ to your regular brunch when you visit Paris, then I reckon that some of Restaurant Brasserie Thoumieux’s delicious patisseries have got what it takes to elevate your meal “best brunch in Paris” status. Big call. I know. Whether it is for brunches, cups of coffee, picnic adventures or fine dining experiences, have a look at our other articles on the INSIDR Website, but for other straight up restaurant ideas, don’t miss out on getting a copy of our Paris Night Guide where we share a long list of our favorites in the city! But, for now, the best brunch in Paris:
Best Brunch in Paris: Restaurant Brasserie Thoumieux
TESTED AND APPROVED BY THE INSIDR TEAM
For whom? This is the perfect spot for the best brunch in Paris for any gourmet family or foodie couple that are accustomed to the best.
What’s in it? So why do we reckon this is the best brunch in Paris? The brunch is a little pricy (55€ per person) but it’s definitely worth it considering the quality of the food served at Thoumieux. You’ll enjoy unlimited exquisite patisserie creations of Thoumieux, and so much more : Dominique Secco’s farmhouse bread, Jean-Yves Bordier’s butter, and Marie-Anne Cantin’s refined cheese – we covered her amazing cheese shop in a previous article here. In a nutshell, the best & brightest of French cuisine!
What do we love best? The lemon tart is to die for: so refined and balanced! We also loved the eggs benedict; you couldn’t really ever earn the title of best brunch in Paris without a ship-shape eggs benedict now, could you?!
What’s the mood like? Restaurant Thoumieux is a rather formal and traditional place, but the very friendly and welcoming staff brighten the atmosphere of the restaurant. The large buffet is the center of attention, and you’ll enjoy watching people’s looks when a new amazing dish arrives from the busy kitchen.
