[Note: This review only covers the venue's weekend brunch menu]
In fine weather, Le Valmy's south-facing tables on the pavement outside are bathed in sunlight. So on Sundays when the canal Saint-Martin is closed to traffic and the clatter of bikes replaces revving engines, it gets pretty busy. The menu, however, is a little disappointing. On the same plate, you might find peas, vegetables bathed in tzatziki, smoked ham, tabbouleh, beetroot cut into cubes and a slice of quiche all mixed together, like a type of minestrone. Dessert-wise, the menu will do little to satisfy the hungry as it only offers a fresh, soft cheese with the choice of either red fruit sauce or honey. Not particularly tasty, but it does at least end the meal on a fresh note. Still, for €16.50 in the sun and next to the canal, you can’t complain too much.
