Sometimes the cherry on top to a weekend is a girly brunch with snazzy chicks. I had been meaning to try Pamela Popo for quite some time, and the day finally came when we set a date in stone and made our way to the city’s Marais neighborhood one morning for some girly giggles and grub. First of all, Pamela Popo takes reservations, which if you’re a Paris bruncher, you probably know is a rare find in the city where brunch actually just means food served on Sunday. They were already winning in my book.

Another brownie point for Pamela Popo was the bottomless bevvies with the brunch (yes, this means you can have a coffee, then a tea, then a hot cocoa, then another hot cocoa…). On the menu are a few choices for an entrée, plat and dessert. I went with the scrambled eggs (I find that in restaurants they’re always a million times better than when I make them at home), a bagel sandwich and carrot cake. It was just divine.

The deco has a chic homey feel – weirdly retro and modern at the same time – with seating on the terrace, main level and upstairs. Highly recommended for brunch with lovely ladies. Average price for brunching in Paris, and I quite liked the atmosphere. Paris is getting a bit too trendy though, my “to try” list just keeps getting longer and longer.

I like my weekends to involve wandering the streets, discovering and tasting new things. In a bustling city like Paris, where new places pop up left and right, my ‘to try’ list on Yelp gets longer and longer and longer and more often than not I am a bit late to give the fab trendy new places a whirl. One Sunday afternoon with two lovies, Faye and Ylenia, we decided to give L’Eclair de Génie a try. We hid from the rain under the arcades of Les Archives Nationales, where we gave our picturesque éclairs a tasteroo, and then ran in the rain to the cozy Loustic for a little warm-up and stellar chai tea latte. Winter has been a bit off this year, back and forth between rainy days with chills and Spring-like days with sun rays. Sweets are most perfect in both cases…
