Une souris et des hommes
Time Out says
Catering to your sweet tooth, your tea, your lunch and your reading needs, Une Souris et des Hommes (Of Mice and Men) was set up by a team of three Parisians in 2014. IT experts Damien and Régis left their computers behind to turn to baking, and Inès started kneading dough after finishing her political science studies. After training up with renowned chefs at Le Nôtre and Café Pouchkine, the trio started up their own business.
Jazz plays in the bright tearoom and a book corner is full of browsing material. Weekend brunches will set you back €25 and include a hot drink, freshly-pressed orange or grapefruit juice, pastries and toast with homemade jams and spread, a boiled egg and a salad. Plus either a slice of cake or a selection of miniature pastries. The baked goods include classic lemon meringue tarts, caramel tarts or chocolate cake (64% cocoa). If you want to try something more adventurous, opt for the sour-cherry dragoto, or cheesecake with an uncooked mousse base and a seasonal fruit coulis centre.
The €15 ‘goûter’ (tasting) menu is a great idea for a gift: it comes with a hot drink, a delicious pastry and a book of a value of up to €8.
