Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
This little venue hiding behind the Belleville boulevard has a simple recipe for success: top quality products at the bar and in the kitchen, with very reasonable prices. There are classic beers (from €2.50 for a demi) as well as a monthly featured brew (around €5 a bottle), plus a good selection of wines (from €2.20 a glass) and cocktails (€7). The food offering is just as good: cheese and charcuterie boards, prettily garnished and with an excellent quality/price ratio (€8) – there’s tomato bread in there, and an excellent Cancoillotte cheese, plus sandwiches and even foie gras for a bit extra. There's a solid soundtrack of classic tunes, an agreeably battered décor, and lots of little details that make all the difference: coffee for €1 at the bar, boiled eggs in the mornings, little wooden shelves outside for smokers to balance their pints on. The lunchtime menu changes daily and the formule is only €13, for generous portions with well considered flavours. Plus the staff are charming – no wonder it’s a favourite with local regulars.
