Run by a friendly young couple, Jade and David Koff, in a street that winds between the Trois Frères and the Abbesses, Koff is a lovely New York style deli. It's been entirely renovated from its previous incarnation as Living B’art, with an elegant DIY décor – even the pictures on the walls are the work of the owner, artist Resnik. It creates a cosy atmosphere that’s the ideal setting for the menu's bagels, burgers, Ashkenazi specialties and Russian dishes. Koff attracts the Montmartre set with its hearty brunch for €21 including coffee or tea, orange juice, muffins, scrambled eggs, pancakes, sausage and smoked salmon...

Breakfast in America

Even in Paris, the city of haute cuisine and knock-your-socks-off Brasserie fare, there comes a time when nothing but bacon, fried eggs, juicy burgers and fluffy pancakes drizzled in maple syrup will do. For those moments, Breakfast in America (known lovingly amongst regulars as B.I.A) offers bona fide American diner surroundings, all-day breakfasts and artery clogging delights like sticky pecan pie, washed down with bottomless mugs o’ Joe.  Needless to say it’s a hit with the brunch crowd who come in droves so large they queue up outside, rain or shine...

Les Bonnes Sœurs

This is a tiny, noisy room, which regularly has people queuing down the Place des Vosges on a Sunday morning. It’s worth getting there early on weekends so you’ll be in pole position to sample the succulent scrambled eggs served as part of the legendary brunch. There are no reservations, but they do operate a waiting list – so be prepared to take a long walk around the block before you’re able to enjoy your breakfast. But it’s probably worth it to work up your appetite.The décor is restrained – wooden tables, leather benches and black and white photos of nuns (the titular ‘good sisters’)...

Chez Casimir

Thierry Breton, owner of Chez Michel and of this bistrot next door, takes the idea of generous servings to extremes. Here, this doesn’t mean an American brunch experience – instead Chez Casimir lays on ‘le Traou Mad’ (meaning ‘good things’ in Breton), served continually from 10am to 7pm. You can fill your plate with delicious fare from Brittany and elsewhere, starting simply with salted butter on exceptional country bread, and moving on to just about everything else: charcuterie, seafood, boudin, smoked salmon, salads, omelettes… then casseroles of flaked cod, beef bourguignon and other similarly hearty dishes...
