Cute brioche buns come served in all manner of bold international varieties at this quaint lunch and brunch spot.

A cute concept café in the 19th arrondissement, the Topknot Café is the perfect place for a relaxed and slightly offbeat weekend brunch. Each week the staff offer a new menu of brioche buns (the café’s speciality), like an inspired chicken and plum number, a more classic goat’s cheese, bacon and apple, or a Chinese gua bao bun, which is stuffed with a traditional boeuf bourguignon and accompanied by a vinegary chicken gizzard salad (or a soup in winter). For those with a sweet tooth, you can’t really go wrong with chocolate brioche, which comes served with a pear and rhubarb compote. Bill wise, you can usually come away with a brioche and dessert for €13 (or €17, including a freshly squeezed juice).
