Le SweetSpot

Canteen, tea room and spread store in the 5th arrondissement.

Rue Mouffetard, fondly named ‘La Mouffe’ by those who life there, still feels like a little village. Among tourists looking for a slice of genuine Paris and students who pile in for happy hour once night falls, we’ve always had a soft spot for the area. Between premade quiches, Japanese classics and crepe stalls, finding good places to eat, however, is not easy. An anomaly in this landscape is SweetSpot, a café and tea room with a sideline in spreads (there’s a choice of over forty you can buy by the jar).

The décor doesn’t do much for us: logs as seats, animal motif wallpaper and clusters of lampshades hanging from the ceiling; it could easily be an Ikea showroom. A slice of chocolate cake and a cappuccino arrives, which resembles badly made instant coffee.

The lunchtime menu includes a dish of the day like cider-poached sausage, purple purée and endives with orange, as well as good value salads and sweet and savoury tarts. Perhaps that’s why it’s so popular?
