Le Pont Traversé, here is the name of this lovely and authentic coffee shop welcoming you with open arms in Paris 6th arrondissement. Once a butcher's shop, then a library renown in the area, which name was kept by the café, the Le Pont Traversé is named after a collection of tales by Jean Paulhan.
As it went into a well-deserved retirement in 2019, the Le Pont Traversé then became in March 2021 a coffee shop. From its story, the place kept the listed façade. And we must say this façade is striking. First a butcher's shop, we understand where there are sculpted beef heads and enameled tiles on the walls.
Attracted by the lovely façade set rue de Vaugirard, we went to get a seat and discover the menu of this coffee shop working both as a restaurant, a canteen, and a two-story delicatessen.
We love the decor unveiling the emerald enamels from the butcher's shop time, mixed to original marbles and mirrors, as well as different bargain-hunted items.
On the shelves of the Le Pont Traversé, enjoy some homemade jams and spreads, as well as chocolate, tea, coffee, olive oil. Only good things, then.
Behind the Le Pont Traversé stands entrepreneur Frédérique Jules, already behind the Noglu restaurants – one of them being set in Paris, the other in New York. This is why you understand the offer is gluten-free.
On the menu, healthy, tasty and thoroughly sourced produces. We love the special coffees, teas, herbal teas, cold-squeezed fruit juices, plant-based or classic lattes, or even lemonades and hot chocolate.
For lunch or to eat on the go, the Le Pont Traversé serves a menu of healthy street food created by Frédérique Jules. The menu includes soups, pastas, salads and buns for the savory part. As for the sweet part, cookies, banana bread, carrot cake, apple pie and pecan pie expect you.
The day we came, we gave a go to the new menu.
We then discovered the delicious tuna bun toast, seared and with pickles, so good. The gravlax salmon, divinely prepared is easy to eat, and the mushroom-stuffed conchiglioni with parmesan cream is a go-to for vegetarians.
Moving on to the sweet part, we went for the healthy granola, and enjoyed the pecan pie and the very moist and poor in sugar carrot cake, a true delight.
In other words, how about having a fantastic moment untouched by time, while enjoying healthy and balanced dishes?
