Going back ten years, brunch had barely made a ripple in the Paris food scene. Now it has its own established verb (‘bruncher’) and you can hardly walk a few paces in the French capital without spotting a weekend brunch formule or crowds of Parisian queuing for their hungover eggs and coffee. And the city couldn’t have been made better for a brunch-based activity, what with its sunny al fresco cafés and post blow-out walks. Whether you’re hankering after hair-of-the-dog cocktails, the perfect patisserie basket or virtuous veggie options, our favourite Paris brunches should have you covered. Think we've missed a great Paris brunch? Let us know in the comments below.
