I am a big fan of breakfast. I just love every part of it. It’s also a very important part of the day.
There are two things that are difficult to find in this city: early bird breakfast spots, and gluten-free products. When I discovered Claus, I realized I won’t need to miss this anymore, because it’s tucked all away right next to the Louvre.
The French have their breakfast traditions, but finding a place open before work- besides a boulangerie- is a toughie here in the city of lights. Secondly, finding a place with gluten-free options (in restaurants or in supermarkets) isn’t donné here like it is elsewhere, which can be frustrating for people with dietary restrictions. This is where PÜR FOOD PARIS stepped in and offered Claus’s founder exactly what he was looking for: the best organic and gluten-free muesli and oats from just across the English channel, Alara. It makes for a delicious breakfast for one and all. It’s just fantastic.
Claus is a breakfast restaurant and a breakfast épicerie. One of a kind in Paris, on the main floor your heart will melt when you are welcomed with homemade treats and shelves full of wholesome and delicious breakfast food for sale. When you go up the stairs, you’ll stumble upon a simplistic and cozy set of wooden tables, with the perfect color palate like sun rays on an autumn morning. Everything is served with simple tableware, the perfect mix of retro and modern. I loved the minimalistic décor of the place, and the boombox quietly playing classical music was the cherry on top.
The Germans are known for indulging in a hearty breakfast, to nourish your body from the moment you wake up. Claus Estermann, the owner and founder, shares this tradition with the international crowds of the Parisian streets. The menu has a variety of hearty savory breakfasts or snacks to pair with your double espresso.
Claus has kept his German origins a part of the menu, offering items such as an epic giant freshly made Bavarian pancake with almonds an apples. With my breakfast I couldn’t resist trying one of Claus’s detox juices, which was to die for. This 8am breakfast kicked off my day for the better.
