Hg2 : The Hedonist

Le Bal Café

Hidden in a quiet impassse near the Place de Clichy – one of the few places in Paris where four arrondissements meet at one point – Le Bal Café is perfectly placed to become the true meeting point between two cultures; the French and British. Bravely taking on the institution that is brunch, Le Bal offers everything from the English fry-up and scones to Welsh rarebit and kedgeree. This, however, is far from a greasy spoon. British classics are injected with extraordinary French produce to deliver an unpretentious, fresh and above all, satisfying taste experience that both Parisians and expats happily queue in the street for. Le Bal’s dessert menu also fails to disappoint – we recommend one (or two) of their famous slices of cheesecake… And if this wasn’t enough, Le Bal’s coffee is fast becoming known as the best in Paris, made by expert barista David Flynn. Expect to fight it out for the last apple crumble with neighbourhood locals, bourgeois bohemians and the odd homesick tourist.
