It’s not unusual to see queues down the block at this popular, reasonably priced Italian trattoria. Decorated in colourful blue and oranges with touches of marble and brass, it looks at good as the pizzas it serves.
For a busy, buzzy Paris cafe vibe, head here. Whether its brunch, lunch or dinner, this menu is comprehensive, the staff are polite, and the wine list is decent too.
Set within a former railway depot, La Felicità is the biggest restaurant in Europe, with five kitchens, three bars and a food market. There’s a wood-burning pizza, a burger shack, a seafood bar, all to be enjoyed on a sun-drenched terrace.

Braun Notes Coffee
Great coffee (natch) in this small and Insta-friendly cafe. Head there at a weekend, when they serve fresh coconuts filled with granola.

A contemporary twist of a Parisian eatery, this neighbourhood gem offers beautifully presented, inventive tapas in a lively setting.
Kotteri Ramen Naritake

Fresh, healthy food in a relaxing atmosphere in a tiny cafe in the Marais, this place doesn’t disappoint. After Moroccan chickpea soup and vegan mint and red onion yogurt, you’ll want to have room for the blood orange and pomegranate cake.
It’s big, it’s friendly and it serves Italian cuisine. Think steaks given the Tuscan treatment, impeccable sea bream and momentous ice cream sundaes.
Du Pain et Des Idées
This is a French bakery of dreams where you will discover orange-blossom brioche, naturally leavened bread and escargot rolls (dough rolled in the shape of snails) in four sweet flavours.
