If a Parisian hipster could design their perfect hangout, it would probably look a lot like Folks and Sparrows. From the comfortable reading corner with its wooden seats protruding from the stone wall to the big communal table near the entrance, and from the bouquets of wildflowers on the tables to the grocery corner stocked with high-end international goodies, it all very much hits the contemporary spot. Food-wise, it's all about the sandwiches (around €7, €10-€12 for a lunchtime formule). These halves of country baguettes easily torpedo your local boulangerie's efforts with superior ingredients like Violette de Brive mustard, spiced pickles and pastrami from artisanal Parisian butcher Will'smoked Meat, all wrapped up in craft paper and sealed with a dried flower. Beyond these, there are a dozen dishes on the menu that change daily, plus cakes from Rachel's and coffee from Lomi. Why resist? Twiddle your moustache, sit back, relax and enjoy.
