The capital’s ongoing street food craze has prompted a sudden rise in demand for American eateries of all stripes. Capitalizing on this trend, Bagels & Brownies brings you just that: the most essential of Stateside snacks, served with simple class. Walk in and you’re confronted with a dizzying array of bagels, each named after a region of the US. We opted for the San Diego (cream cheese, pastrami, cheese, tomato, avocado and mustard) – at €7.50 it was near the top of the price range (which begins with the simple cream cheese at €3.60) and a tad small, but also filling, creamy, and sweet and savoury in equal measure. Appetizing desserts line the counter – we tried the donut (€1.30) and a sumptuous lemon meringue pie (€3.70) – and decent coffee is on offer to wash it all down. Your food is served with a smile and a wink, but once you’ve got it you’re best off taking it away, unless you’re happy to squeeze into one of the five seats at the counter.
The shop has a sister venue at 2 Rue du Faubourg Poissonnière, 10e.
