Treize au Jardin is a gorgeous spot for brunch, afternoon tea and cake, or early evening cocktails on a sun-dappled terrace across from the Luxembourg Gardens. Laurel Sanderson and Kajsa von Sydow made their name with brunch and desserts, but are now serving an expanded menu that includes fantastic salads and adult beverages to match their later opening hours. You can catch some rays on the outdoor terrace and bring home a bunch of flowers or a stack of brownies. It’s girly as hell, but from the kind of girls who like buttermilk biscuits and whiskey. One of our Favorite Restaurants in Saint-Germain and recommended for Great Vegetarian Food in Paris.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
The Wall Street Journal (2015) “Ms. Sanderson’s bubbly personality—she often sits at the scrubbed-wood communal table to chat with guests—and the inviting open-plan kitchen that dishes up Southern favorites like buttermilk biscuits, “not-fried” chicken with gravy, and the ultimate carrot cake have charmed the upscale neighborhood to the point that now Parisians make up the majority of her customers.”
Sugared & Spiced (2015) “It’s run by South Carolina native Laurel Sanderson, and needless to say that the menu is filled with homey Southern comfort food, albeit in lighter and healthier versions. Buttermilk biscuits, homemade savory pies, (not fried) fried chicken, fresh salads… a nice spot for lunch.”
