How to merge Sunday comfort foods with our healthy aspirations and good detox resolutions. Zoom on tasty and healthy brunches that will make you feel better.
Les Dames de Granvelle
The place: it’s the new address that will appeal to twigs, opened by Severine Moureu-Montrossey, healthy pioneer in Paris with Supernature who reinvents the tea salon. By twisting tables covered with white linens and bucolic bouquets, de 60’s armchairs and Murano chandeliers, this small very “new Renaissance” café, with bewitching charm has it all. Especially in terms of food, since here everything is homemade with fresh and organic products, sourced from small producers of the Franche-Comté region.
The brunch: for 24 €, fresh juice of the day+ coffee sourced at Coutume or a sublime Earl Grey + baguettes, brioche feuilletée, whipped butter, chocolate spread and jam + house granola + orange blossom and apple-pear sauce. Without forgetting a plate with raw veggies, sausage of Morteau, comté cheese and an avocado toast with poached egg and hollandaise sauce.
The plus: “lighter” plates such as the Renaissance (salad + cereal pancake + tartare of algae + raw veggies + germinated seeds + goat cheese with herbs and kale chips), tofu moussaka or sweet potato quiche. To be noted, the €10 kids brunch.
Saturday and Sunday brunch from 11am to 5pm.
