Some places are worth the trip. It’s the case of Café Frappé par Bloom.
Inaugurated in September 2017 at the same time as the museum it belongs to, the 11 Conti, this new place with a light, modern, green and warm décor, thought up by Studio DAS, has everything to make us stop by for a while.
So, don’t fear if you see two guards in front of the door. They’re here for the museum. Once you passed them, you can push the transparent door and discover the very friendly Café Frappé par Bloom.
Behind this new wonderful and gourmet project, we find Pauline, the founder of Bloom restaurants located in Paris 8th and 11th arrondissements.
Bloom took over the place to offer – like its big brothers – a 100% homemade, seasonal, local, sustainable cuisine accessible to all. In terms of products, Pauline is supplied directly from quality producers from Ile-de-France.
We discover a simple yet gourmet menu with sweet and savory products such as, for lunch, the 100% homemade lasagnas, a veggie risotto or bowls, grilled cheeses and sandwiches. In the weekend, welcome a more family atmosphere white the famous brunch served like an unlimited buffet for €35 (hot drinks, brioches, waffles, cold cuts, salads, soups, desserts…).
Café Frappé par Bloom also features a breakfast offer for €7, and an afternoon break for €8.
As for us, we chose to discover the place at aperitif time, available from Thursday to Saturday only. Welcomed by the very smiling Clara, the talented Barman chef offers us a wonderful trip to South America thanks to the suggestion cocktail, an incredible drink based on Mezcal and cucumber.
For cocktail lovers, please note that the cocktail changes every day according to the barman’s wish who tells us that he prefers Latin American alcohol such as Mezcal as well as Tequila and Pisco.
For the rest, we go return to the classic cocktail list such as Mojito, Moscow Mule or Whisky Sour.
Red, white wines, craft beers and ciders are also on the list.
To accompany the cocktail, we go for a beautiful cold cuts board with artisanal terrine, dry sausage and ham slices (€16) and an organic burratina seasoned with just a dash of olive oil (€7).
On the menu too? Cheese like the Saint Marcellin roasted with honey, or the tantalizing warm Mont d’Or with soldiers for several people, taramasalata, fish rillettes, a Nordic plate or a knife-sliced beef tartare.
And to end on a sweet note, you should try the homemade desserts with the apple crumble or the soft chocolate cake served warm, gourmet desserts we love!
Please note that all dishes are cooked every day within Bloom kitchen in Paris 11th arrondissement before being repatriated by Café Frappé par Bloom.
We tell you, known through word of mouth, Café Frappé par Bloom is slowly making a splash and won’t be confidential soon, so, here’s my advice to you: run there!
