TOP 10 places to Brunch in Paris

Nothing beats waking up on a Sunday morning and having the perfect combination of a sweet and savory dish, with friends followed by a low-key afternoon strolling around the streets of Paris. As an American Brunch often equals pancakes, waffles, eggs benedicts, or bottomless mimosas (the thought of adding orange juice to Champagne is sacreligious to Frenchies). When brunching in Paris I tend to gravitate towards places that have a good mix of French inspired dishes, that are rather hardy like brunch back home. Below you will find a list of  delicious, La Vie Locale trusted places to brunch for all budgets. Its important to know most places don’t accept reservations for brunch, so it is first come first serve. Note*- this list isn’t ordered in preference to hard to rank them, each place has their own unique characteristics.
