Hardware Société \ Paris

I think that I should have written this article when I first had brunch back in June 2016. I’ve gone back at least 3 times after that first visit. Honestly, it is one of the best brunch in Paris! It is definitely in my top 3.

What I love:

1.The food: although I’ve only eaten the oeufs cocotte 2 {they are that good!!}, I can recommend everything ! The friends I’ve been with have ordered the scrambled eggs with salmon, the mushrooms, the millefeuille de saumon…. and everything has been delish all the way to the desserts!

 

2. The coffee: coming all the way from Australia! The restaurant uses Padre coffee, and it is amazing. They also have cold brew, matcha latte… the works!

3. The place: who doesn’t love Montmartre? The restaurant is right next to Sacré Coeur… so if you’ve been in Paris you know that no matter where you stop to climb up to the top of Sacré Coeur, your brunch will be well deserved! I usually arrive via metro line 12 stop Lamarck Coulaincourt. Moreover, I love the feel of the restaurant! Love the decoration, the tables, the little counter with the desserts… everything!

4. The people: everyone working at Hardware is great! They are always extremely nice (let’s just say it’s a rarity in Paris), always smiling, always trying to give the best experience. Also, there are A LOT of foreigners coming here! One time the server talked to my husband and I in english, since everyone in the restaurant was either American, English or Australian!  It usually is like that before 13h … so pro tip: arrive early, around 11 or 11h30 since they do not accept reservations and you have to get in line after 12h.

Let me know what you think in the comments!!!

La Doña opened a few months ago in the 11ème arrondissement in Paris. I knew about this restaurant thanks to a friend that lives around the corner. We had dinner there and it was really good, authentic mexican food from the state of Oaxaca. I waited for a loong time to finally go to the Sunday brunch, and it was worth the wait.

{Café} La Penderie

One of the great things about Paris is that there is an incredible amount of cafés to choose from. By café I don’t mean only a place where you can drink coffee, but a place where you can have a drink, eat and mingle until the wee hours of the morning.

A friend invited me La Penderie for an afterwork drink that turned out to be more of a dinner ! It is located in the center of Paris, just outside the Metro Etienne Marcel (line 4).
