Brunching on a terrace in Paris this summer

Parisians love brunching, and tourists seem to have caught on, too. So we thought we’d do some digging to find the best places to enjoy a sunny Sunday meal, with the typical poached eggs, pancakes and jam...

Who really wants to get up at 9am on a Sunday and eat a balanced breakfast, just to eat lunch again around noon? Parisians prefer getting up late and going out to brunch outside on a nice terrace in the sunny weather. And with the typical brunch food like eggs, fresh fruit juice, toast and jam, what’s not to love?

We’ve taken it upon ourselves to select a few of the best outdoor patio spots in Paris where you can settle in, enjoy the sun and chow down on a delicious brunch. Brunches come in all sorts, from trendy and young, to chic and extravagant, or even brunching on the water!

On the menu:

Trendy brunches
