Canal Saint Martin

[Note: This review only covers the venue's weekend brunch menu]

Les Enfants Perdus is a discreet and really rather chic fine-dining restaurant frequented by the bobos of the Canal Saint-Martin, and overspill from the bars L’Atmosphère and Café Bonnie. The interior is sombre but at the back, a light and airy room has been kitted out with comfortable benches strewn with white cushions – ideal for plonking yourself down on a Saturday or Sunday morning at brunch hour. And the dishes are exceptional. The best approach here is to fast for a day beforehand, in order to take full advantage of the gigantic, delicious brunch prepared by a Michelin-starred chef who is passionate about both style and substance – even when it comes to brunch. The menu is unique, and changes every six months. For €25 no fewer than three platters are brought to you. The first comprises delicious mini-viennoiseries, house orange juice and hot drinks of your choosing; the second features shirred eggs, cake, a beautiful slice of organic salmon on a bed of salad and a cup of cucumbers in white cheese with mint. After loosening your belt you will receive a final, enormous platter with vegetable soup, faisselle au miel, grapes, ham and cheese.

Upon Timeout's advice went to visit Les Enfants Perdus for brunch yesterday (a Saturday). Was quite disappointed to be greeted by a waiter who was slightly confused that we wanted breakfast/brunch and was told that the restaurant does NOT in fact serve brunch at all!! We did however pop into another AMAZING cafe around the corner called Holybelly which I would highly recommend!! Fantastic food, wonderful, friend & fun service and by far the best cappuccino/latte I had in Paris! --> http://holybel.ly/
