Paris With Me Travel Guide
The newly opened Season coffee shop in the Empreintes concept store is large, full of light and spacious! I believe that the small details count the most, so I particularly love the beautiful saucers and pretty tableware (which, by the way, you can buy in Empreintes), original pastries (like the gorgeous leopard Matcha cake) and excellent, strong Belleville coffee. Prices are: a cup coffee from 4 euros; pastries from 4 euros as well.

Obermamma is definitely one of my favorite places to have dinner in Paris. It is an Italian restaurant with beautiful interiors, plates, hilarious staff and a delicious menu. There is only one problem: Obermamma does not take any reservations and the place is VERY popular! So my secret tip: come at 6pm (as the bar will be already open), enjoy a cocktail and wait for 7pm when the kitchen opens. Otherwise, if you show up at 7pm, there is a big chance that your table will be only available around 10pm. But the food is so good!!! Expect to pay about 20-25 euros per person. Obermama is open everyday from 7pm to 01:00am.

Hardware Société is a newly opened, charming place for breakfast with different types of eggs, coffees, croissants and jams. Nice bonus: a pretty view over Montmartre rooftops and friendly, English-speaking staff. Breakfast goes for 15 – 20 euros per person. FYI: They are closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

Benedict is a hip place in the heart of the Marais district. There is always a line to enter (they do not take reservations) but the queue moves fast and is totally worth it! The name is Benedict because of the main dish they serve here: eggs Benedict, it is just awesome! Also try their homemade lemonade. Benedict is a spacious and light place, with friendly English-speaking staff. It’s perfect for lunch or brunch and is open everyday. A meal will cost around 15 – 20 euros per person.
Address: 19 Rue Sainte-Croix de la Bretonnerie, 75004 Paris
Pain Pain is one of my favorite Parisian boulangeries (bakery/pastry shop). They also serve breakfast and coffee. Be sure to check out the amazing choice of french pastries—my personal favorite is the Chocolate-Pistachio Snail! Treats are 5 – 10 euros per person. Pain Pain is closed on Mondays.
Address: 88 Rue des Martyrs, 75018 Paris
Cuillier is my favorite coffee place in all of Paris! These guys make the creamiest latte I’ve ever tried! The place is also very relaxed: minimalist and bright, with an excellent selection of magazines and no queues at the entrance.
Address: 19 Rue Yvonne le Tac, 75018 Paris
Institut de Bonté
Institut de Bonté, which is translated as the Institute of the Goodness, speaks for itself. Here you will enjoy excellent prices (on weekends, during the day, and brunch menu only) and super interiors! This place was opened by the team of another legendary Parisian spot, Le Comptoir General. Institut de Bonté has an excellent location overlooking Saint Martin Canal and serves the most delicious tea latte in Paris!
Address: 84 quai de Jemmapes 75010 Paris
Marché aux Fleurs/Old Flower Market
The Marché aux Fleurs is in front of the Ile de la Cité metro station entrance. Here you can enjoy the authentic spirit of one of the oldest flower markets in Paris, but also to shop for postcards and souvenirs.
