Do you Yelp?
Last week was March’s Yelp Paris Elite event at Café Pinson.. the theme was Detox. It was my first time at Café Pinson, and boy did this evening make me want to go back all the time.
I brought Olivia as my +1 to this event, and we mingled and indulged in delicious organic wines, epicly yumz juices (apple, carrot & lemon, beetroot and something nice, or a green delicoius kale) and other treats. On the menu was butternut squash velouté topped with kale, tofu & spinach madeleines (one of Pinson’s original recipes) and sweet potato falafels. Home run. After gobbling down all of these terribly good snacks, we had the delight of trying something rejuvenating that I had never even heard of before: birch sap. It was slightly chilled and we sipped it in precious Duralex cups.
One of the main things that had me head over heels for Café Pinson was their interior decoration. I just love the simplicity and color tones. From the shelves & knick knacks to the couches to the stools, it was cozy as can. It really is a wholesome place.
And of course, finally, it’s another resto where vegetarians and gluten-free eaters can go at eat freely. (We can all admit that Paris is not the best city for that, so places like this are making it more so!).
In detox we trust. Go ahead, give it a whirl!
Café Pinson is also getting creative with kale. They refer to it now as Chou Kale as you have probably seen on The Kale Project. It was a tough egg to crack with the French… WHAT DO WE CALL THIS?!
I for one am just glad to see this hearty green more present in this magical city.
Special thanks to Elodie for getting all of us Yelpeurs together! It was a hoot.

Until next time. I can’t wait to try out Pinson’s brunch!
