  1. Just tried this place yesterday after attempting Ellis Island Café, which seems to be out business?

    It’s very crowded, so be prepared to wait! Prices are a little steep, but reasonable for Paris (22-30 euros for Sunday brunch).

    The eggs Florentine were my favorite, a friend tried the omelette but said it was a little on the watery side. Cappuccino was excellent, and the pancake was quite good though could’ve been hotter.

    Portions were generous and staff friendly…definitely recommended if you don’t mind the chaotic atmosphere!

  2. We needed a break from the bread and espresso breakfasts of Paris, so we visited Eggs & Co. this morning to get a real brunch. Delicious eggs benedict, though I would recommend the traditional over the florentine, and FANTASTIC espresso and lattes. Easily the best I’ve tasted so far in Paris.

    Also loved that you called this place “sunny” – it is indeed! A jolly oasis complete with a “chicken coop” in the back room upstairs (where you should sit, by the way). Lastly, the service was great. Lovely people willing to take us through each dish and their recommendations.

    Thanks for pointing us toward a great spot!

  3. rather funny because I was going to say: “i think this is a good choice for dinner with the girls” & read then Barbara’s blog post on it before commenting and see that ponders the question: why is this spot so full of females?

    I think it’s the deco that seems kind of delicate and girlie to me, i believe it was featured some time ago in Elle magazine (not a big male readership there) and if you tell your boyfriend/husband “We’re going to a restaurant that only serves eggs” they imagine something like a plate with couple boiled egg halves and nothing more and immediately think it won’t be enough food. And, yes, there’s plenty of good shopping around there, too.

    Whatever the reason, I get that girlie-restaurant vibe.

    Oh – and I enjoyed the food there, which is also good to know!
