A fashion-world favourite for yonks (there’s a concession in London’s hip Dover Street Market), Rose Bakery has recesssion-chic appeal, thanks to its fresh, good-quality fare and minimal style. A fixture on the foodie trail that runs up and down rue des Martyrs/rue Rochechouart, it’s a humble converted chartil (a market trader’s fruit and veg lock-up, basically) with concrete floors, whitewashed walls and room for about 30 people. Rose and Jean-Charles (she’s English; he’s French) bring a farmer’s market sensibility to lunchtime, and bake anglophile treats for teatime. Their salads, tarts, Eccles cakes and carrot cake always run out. Locals love it, and Brits and Americans are delighted by the shelves of British groceries, and a smashing brunch of bacon and eggs, boiled eggs with Marmite toast, kedgeree or porridge.
