Reviews of interest

Florence Valencourt (2014) “Bread & Roses décident de donner un nouvel élan à leur adresse fétiche du VIème arrondissement en inaugurant un grand salon de thé, attenant à la boulangerie et épicerie de luxe… et dans lequel on se voit bien passer des heures à siroter un thé, tout en grignotant.”

François Simon (2014) “Les pâtisseries ont du coffre (le sticky toffee pudding était scélérat à souhait)… mais j’ai eu du mal avec l’addition. Moi, qui était venu grignoter une salade, fut elle la « grande salade d’été>, j’ai fait un gloups devant la douloureuse: 82,70 euros à deux avec un dessert partagé et cette salade, certes convenable, à 26 euros, mouais.”

Paris Bouge (2013) “Fort du succès de la nourriture bio et bonne, Bread and Roses excelle avant tout dans ses pains et sa viennoiserie. ”

Time Out (2012) “Giant wedges of cheesecake sit alongside French pastries, and huge savoury puff-pastry tarts are perched on the counter. Attention to detail shows even in the authentically pale taramasalata, which is matched with buckwheat-and-seaweed bread. Prices reflect the quality of the often organic ingredients, but that doesn’t seem to deter any of the moneyed locals, who order towering birthday cakes here for their snappily dressed offspring.”

Barbra Austin (2010) “The breads are all organic.  The pastries are natural beauties.  The quiches are deep and the savory tarts are filled with bright vegetables and herbs…While I’ve never thought of this place as a bargain, I don’t remember a piece of quiche and a salad costing €17.50 either.”

David Lebovitz (2010) “One of the curious things that’s happening right now in the Paris food scene is a spate of what I consider ‘anglo’-style cafés opening up in various smaller neighborhoods…Places like…Bread and Roses…are all packed at lunchtime not with homesick Brits or Americans, but Parisians. These simple cafés and take-outs are riffs on places in England like Ottolenghi that take care when selecting ingredients.”

Bruno Verjus (2009) “Certes, les prix sont gros, très gros, mais les gâteaux aussi. Ici, la gourmandise saute aux yeux, la qualité exceptionnelle. J’ai un penchant bien naturel pour le pain aux graines, le cheese-cake, le tarama, le pain aux dix farines, la baguette aux raisins, la tartelette d’automne, les scones, … la liste est longue.”

One thought on “Bread & Roses”

  1. Given the prime real estate and address, clearly no bargains are to be expected but 22 eur for a so-so pastrami sandwich is a bit much no? Probably best just to steer clear and leave it to the fashionista / chi-chi crowd that seems to pack in at lunchtime.
