Paris Eats - Getting Brunchy With It!

For my copine's 33rd anniversaire, I took her to a brunch at A Priori Thé located in the covered passageway, Galérie Vivienne.  I had been there once before, but never for a brunch, and the whole package sounded fantastique.

Behold our lovely brunch:

The entrance to the passageway

We opted for inside seating, but you can also enjoy brunch on the terrace

This is what you see when you look up...

Even the floor is beautiful

Brunch first course: mini cornbread, scones and muffins, fromage blanc with raspberry coulis, tea (with milk for me!), freshly squeezed orange juice, butter and jams

Brunch second course: we both got zucchini stuffed with chèvre and pesto, tapenade with roasted noisette (hazelnuts) on top and fresh tomatoes

Brunch third course: I got the cheesecake with lemon zest, coconut and raspberry coulis; my copine got the double chocolate brownie....to die for.

The ambiance is cozy, service is friendly, food is delicious! Be sure to reserve - I've tried to pop in numerous times without one and it's not the way to go. Brunch was 30 Euros each and to be honest, we could have shared just one; afterwards we were sooo full.  We were there from 12:30 to 3:45pm...in other words, give yourself lots of time to grub and digest!

  1. I know - they really should serve LESS food so that when the cheesecake comes, you can dive in and eat the whole thing. I couldn't even finish it...:-(
