While we all love a good weekend brunch blowout with all the carbs, fat and protein we can get on a plate (or several, if we're talking all-you-can-eat), the Paris brunch fetish means they don't all come cheap. These venues all feature in our city round-up of the best brunches in Paris, and they all serve fantastic slap-up meals for the princely sum of €20 or less. La classe!
