Season | Paris

Although my most recent trip to Paris was a few months ago now, I still have one place I wanted to share with you. I've been seeing a lot of Paris pics on my Instagram feed lately which makes me miss this beautiful city already! So let's go back a few months... I had a huge list of places to try in Paris, but because of the circumstances, many of the places were closed on Saturday. One of them, however, kindly opened its doors to Parisians & others. It felt (and looked) like a little safe-haven amidst the craziness of that particular weekend.

What caught my attention with this place was the interior. It's really bright and fresh, and they made a good use of cool lighting. I also really like the walls and the "halo" on the ceiling, so nice! (obviously the place was a little empty because Le Marais was almost deserted that day)

Although they were clearly understaffed (because obviously not everyone wanted or was able to work that Saturday after the 13th), the waitress was still really accommodating and showed us the things on the menu which they were able to make. Although we could only pick from a few options, the menu looked really good & filled with fresh food. It's a perfect brunch spot because there's all the brunch options you could wish for: avocado toast, pastrami sandwiches, kale caesar salad, açaí bowls, granola with yoghurt, pancakes, bagels, porridge... 

One of us picked the açaí bowl and two of us chose the avocado toast because you can never go wrong with avocado toast! Of course accompanied by the necessary caffeine-infused beverages (a BIG cappuccino and a cortado for me), and fresh juices in tiny bottles (carrot and orange)

The avocado toast was super tasty: toasted sourdough and smashed avocado, mixed in with a little spicy French mustard, lemon and curry. A surprising combination but a really good one! The mustard/curry flavour was subtle but it added a little kick to the creaminess of the avocado. Something I should try to recreate at home some time! 



The juices were freshly pressed and came in the cutest little milk bottles! The coffee was one of the best I've had in Paris. I think the coffee-culture-trend-hipster-hype has really settled in Paris now because I noticed a lot more good coffee places than before. Ob-La-Di is one I wished to try but unfortunately it was closed.. next time! 







Although we definitely didn't go to Season on one of the best days, the food was really tasty and the staff was very nice. This only shows to me that this is a great little place, no matter what the circumstances. I'm sure if I would go back on a "normal" day, it would be even better! If you're looking for a fresh & healthy breakfast/brunch in Paris, this is where you need to be. You can see a lot more of their yummy food on their Instagram
