Time Out says

4 out of 5 stars

Rose Bakery-trained chefs whip up Franco-British classics at this contemporary cool museum cafe in the 18th.

The young and trendy Bal Café team welcome with a smile, in a space that was once a cabaret, and then became the largest PMU in France. Now it’s a calm haven adorned with documentary photography with an inventive menu of Franco-British dishes like Pastis chicken and posh sausage rolls. Expect the selection to change daily and seasonally, but it's all delicious thanks to the Rose Bakery-trained chefs. Make a beeline for brunch, which includes porridge, scones, bacon and other Brit classics.

Despite the concrete-heavy decor, the place is warm and hospitable and even has a small sunny terrace. It’s a no reservations spot so arrive early or kill time at one of the BAL’s excellent exhibitions and arty bookstore.
