I’ve written a few Paris Travel Guides but I thought a food guide deserved its own post. After all, Paris has some of the best restaurants in the world. We practically ate our way through the city. Pro tip: do a lot of walking to burn off all the croissants! Every time I travel I usually have a list of new spots to try and reservations I need to make, this trip was no exception.
Cafe de Flore: I’m sure you’ve seen snap shots of this picture perfect cafe all over Instagram. It is one of the oldest coffee houses in Paris, located in the heart of the 6th arrondissement. It’s a great place to sit, sip on a coffee and people watch (one of my favorite things to do ;] ) or enjoy a light lunch.
Ladurée: Known for their famous macaroons. I highly recommend the salted caramel, its delicious!
Le Relais de l’Entrecôte: My number one food recommendation. There is no menu…only one dish served: Steak and fries. They are most known for the unforgettable “green sauce” on the steak, boy is it delicious! Come hungry because you get one portion and then they come back with more. Grab a bottle of their house red house wine and enjoy!
Le Franklin Passy: The cheeseburger may have been one of the best I’ve ever had and that’s saying a lot!
Cafe de Marly: More on the pricey side but the view was worth it. Being right at the Lourve museum, it’s the perfect spot to sit and people watch while enjoying a coffee or Aperol Spritz (my new favorite!).
Le Saint Jean: The Saint Jean is the best salad I’ve had in my life, so good I made it a priority to get back to this cafe the next time I was in Paris. Grab a spot right on the street and take in scenic Montmare.
Ferdi: Famously known for being one of Kim Kardashians favorite Parisian restaurants. Known for their Mac Ferdi burger, it did not disappoint. I’m already craving this burger again. The restaurant is very, VERY small and always busy so make a reservation!
Au Bureau: Another burger spot…surprise surprise. Low key pub with some of the friendliest staff I’ve ever met. No frill spot right off the Champ Elysees that is reasonably priced (that area is pretty touristy & can be over priced). They also have happy hour.
When in doubt, grab a baguette, cheese and a bottle of wine and have a picnic in one of the many beautiful parks around the city.
