If you know of any we've missed off our list, let us know in the comments box below or tweet us.

Biglove Caffè

4 out of 5 stars
Recommended

What's the deal? The fourth Big Mamma address stands out the most from its sisters – with a long list of gluten-free dishes (such a pizza with maize, buckwheat and rice flour) but especially, a rare coveted concept in Paris, an all-day brunch. Don't miss the gargantuan blueberry pancakes with buffalo milk ricotta came drenched in maple syrup – utter decadence.

What's the deal? Who would have imagined that two pancakes stuffed with sweet azuki bean paste would send such a ripple over the Parisian foodie scene? Try several versions of these pancake patties, all made to order, with fillings like Guérande salt or matcha (green tea powder).
