On Rue Montmartre, at 1pm, streaming queues of workers emerge to get their take away bobuns, salads or burgers… But one shop tucked next to Saint-Eustache church remains a well kept secret: Comptoir de la Gastronomie. It's an institution which has been feeding Parisians for over a century. There are those who come to buy charcuterie, a bottle of wine or Henras truffle oil whilst others stay for the lunch time deal at €14.50. Or some sandwich lovers like us, come to get stuck into these magnificent specialities. Fresh baguettes with good products: for example the sublime ham, butter and gherkins; or the duck breast and mango chutney. They come with a little salad with perfectly seasoned potatoes and a drink for €8.50.
Pay the bill at the old traditional cash desk and then munch it down in the parc des Halles.
