Les P'tites Indécises
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
Les P'tites Indécises caters primarily to large appetites and pinched wallets. Set in the middle of a sunlit square near Parmentier, this brightly lit restaurant boasts a generous brunch that comes in two varieties: the ‘p’tit dej’ and the ‘complet’, both of which include freshly squeezed juice, your choice of hot drink and an unlimited bread basket with a selection of spreads. If you choose the 'p’tit dej' (reasonably priced at €14.50), you also get a choice of entrée and dessert: the entrée nearly always includes fried eggs and bacon to mop up your hangover, plus a seasonal treat like melon & ham or Italian mozzarella salad. For dessert, you can pick up a light option such as yoghurt with berries, or – if you’re feeling a bit more wicked – a decadent chocolate and hazelnut brownie. Got space for more? Take the complet for €23, which has an added main course, from a selection of good French bistro classics and Petites Indécises specialities.
The décor is bright and cheerful and the menu is simple but solid. Ultra-affable waiters score bonus points for happily translating the menu if need be, but in a venue this popular they can be hard to pin down. This is the sort of place to head to with a crowd of friends to comb over last night's debauchery while gently nursing a hangover. If the weather's nice, choose one of the tables that snake around the outside of the conservatory to sip a café crème in the sun. It also has free Wi-Fi and so attracts students and freelancers during the day, who come for the cheap prices and relaxed ambience – and then stay on for the Happy Hour.
