It’s not easy to execute a menu for three distinct meal times, but this newcomer to the higher end of Jean-Pierre Timbaud in the food-frenzied 11th arrondissement hits it on the nose. Come by in the morning for a filter coffee (French for a real American drip, not an Americano), a bowl of their homemade Grammola, or an open sandwich topped with crispy bacon, a fried egg, a dollop of jam, and some greens.
For lunch, the heartier menu, which changes daily, might also be a sandwich, stuffed cabbage, or rice soup with shitake mushrooms. They also do small plates you can share for dinner starting at 6pm, such as beef meatballs and a French favorite: deviled eggs.
There are plenty of tables—two tops, plus round ones for groups—as well as a terrace for when the weather’s warm. Inside is where you may hear a throwback playlist of Eurythmics, Culture Club, and more from the late ‘80s and early ‘90s. Sing along while sampling something from the sweets selection displayed on the bar, like a slice from a glazed lemon loaf or a sea salt chocolate chip cookie.
