Spotted a few months ago near Pigalle, the Papilles coffee-shop has given carte blanche to Céline Pham to reinvent a 100% comfort food menu.
Spotted a few months ago near Pigalle, the Papilles coffee-shop has given carte blanche to Céline Pham (ex Ze Kitchen Galerie, Saturne, Septime) to reinvent a 100% comfort food menu.
In parallel, the dining room has treated itself to a new tie and dye identity with a 90s spirit, visible on the staff t-shirts and the table mats. A grunge touch that is quite different from the slick decor featuring wicker chairs and banquettes in duck blue velvet.
On the programme of treats
The brief ? Desacralize the weekend brunch. Who said pancakes were just for Sundays ? The hot nomadic chef ishakes up preconceived ideas.
And the result is Benedict eggs with an orange sabayon (€14), a 2.0 banh-mi in reference to the Vietnamese origins of the chef (€14), a veggie croque-monsieur with mushrooms (€13), fluffy salty pancakes with bacon (€14) or sweet with fruit and green lemon (€12). Thumbs up for the braised cauliflower sprinkled with a divine sauce and roasted sesame seeds to share (€12).
To be noted, the clever featuring with the nearby Mamiche bakery that supplies breads, viennoiseries and a huge babka (€5).
In terms of drinks, coffee runs freely, teas are created exclusively by Kodama and the chai comes in a dirty version (with a shot of coffee). Damned.
The added plus
The non-stop service, a reservation operation that will avoid a humiliating waiting line and the cool atmosphere of this very trendy hot spot.
Open Thursday to Monday from 9am to 5pm.
