There is something of a guest house at Griffon, this new address which welcomes a hybrid place, at the same time café, bar and restaurant, cleverly arranged with spaces conducive to confidence.

Opened in January at “Ma Tante”, nickname of Crédit municipal, this coffee shop seems to have a bright future.

It must be said that the owners brought here the know-how that they deployed in their eight other addresses in Paris, in the suburbs or in the provinces (la Bellevilloise, la Rotonde Stalingrad, la Petite Halle, le Poinçon, etc.)

A clever mix of a club with vintage furniture and a restaurant with bohemian codes, we appreciate the welcome, the subdued lighting and the homemade Mediterranean-inspired dishes: carrot soup (€6,50), sandwich of per week (€10), quinoa salad and grilled chicken (€12), quiche (€10,50), craft beers and live wines.

Another surprise: you can, without waiting for sunny days, enjoy a 70 m2 terrace dotted with green plants and old signs – a clever nod to those exhibited at the nearby Carnavalet Museum.

Vegetarian restaurant: Bonnard, it’s all good!

You immediately feel at home at Bonnard where you are welcomed by Elise, the French-American hostess, chic and relaxed, in a decor where wood and stone predominate. This is because, here, everything is natural: the decor, the people, the organic wines, the seasonal cuisine. Welcome, then, street…

Divine brunch at the foot of Notre-Dame

Divine brunch at the foot of Notre-Dame

Of course, officially, it is not the Marais. But at Son de la Terre, a barge recently moored at the Montebello quay (5th), the 4th arrondissement is in sight. Moreover, this one is incredible: on one side, it is Notre-Dame flooded with sunlight; on the other, the quays, the book sellers, the walkers, the joggers.

The second-hand market has always had its fans. There is, however, vintage and vintage. From the sweatshirt sold by weight to the rare restored piece, there is a world of difference.
