10th Arrondissement Specialty
10 Rue de la Grange aux Belles, 10th
When it comes to Ten Belles, all you have to know are your CECs: carbs, eggs, and coffee.
24 Rue des Vinaigriers, 10th
Though this coffee shop serves treats and light lunch (lentil and quinoa salads in jars, artisan sandwiches, etc.), locals really flock here for Craft's cappucinos, Wi-Fi, and work-friendly feel. There's a communal table in the back that's perpetually lined with people tapping away at their Macs, though there are just as many locals who stop by to catch up with friends.
Du Pain et Des Idées
34 Rue Yves Toudic, 10th
Baker Christophe Vasseur has won innumerable awards for the pastries at his tiny corner boulangerie in the 10th, which makes perfect sense. Don’t be put off by the lines—which extend around the block—since the effort justifies the wait. Do as the locals do and come here to stock up on daily bread, along with pain aux raisin, and the chausson à la pomme fraîche (puff pastry stuffed with half of a baked apple). Basically, you can’t go wrong.
Bob’s Juice Bar
15 Rue Lucien Sampaix, 10th
Whether you want a green juice to kick off what will otherwise be a day of gluttony, or need a palate-cleanser after a string of rich French meals, this tiny space offers a respite. Besides cold-pressed juice (Paris’s first foray into that space), you’ll find locals feasting on quinoa salads and veggie-laden muffins at the communal table.
