Brunch spot : Holybelly – Paris
7 mars 2015 § Poster un commentaire
Canal Saint Martin was originally built by Napoleon in 1802 for relying Canal de l’Ourq, further north, to supply fresh water to the city. Today, many shops, restaurants have opened and the neighbourhood attracts pedestrians on week end when the Quai de Valmy is closed to cars. I particularly love this area because it is full of nice cafés, lively wine bars and my favorite bakery. One of the place I often go for brunch is Holybelly. They serve breakfast from 9am, brunch on week ends and the two chefs use seasonal ingredients for their dishes. If you order Pancakes with fruits, the toppings may vary depending on their arrivals.
On their February menu, I tried the pot-au-feu which was perfect with the cold weather. Pot-au-feu is a beef stew composed of meat, vegetables and flavored with a pinch of bouquet garni.
It is rare in Paris to be able to enjoy delicious food with good coffee. Holybelly is one of them: coffee beans come from the Belleville Brûlerie and their bread from Du pain et des Idées.
