3rd Arrondissement (Upper Marais)
L’estaminet d’Arômes & Cépages
L’Estaminet is a bio (organic) restaurant run by wine vendor d’Arômes & Cépages inside the Le Marché des Enfants-Rouge, Paris’ oldest covered market. At the end of this market's colorful stalls lined with produce and foodstuffs, welcoming wooden country door marks the entrance to L’Estaminet. This lively café boasts communal tables, where guests gather at breakfast for tartine confiture (bread and jam) with pressed juice and a café crème. The lunch menu includes savory tartines (open-faced sandwiches), salads, and soups. In the afternoons, the wine bar is the place to be for French vintages paired with cheeses and charcuterie.
On weekends, order the "brunch plate," which includes scrambled eggs, cheese, charcuterie, salad greens, scones, jam, fromage blanc, fresh-squeezed juice, and one “hot” beverage such as a shot of espresso.
