La Chambre aux Oiseaux

A cosy canteen with a touch of vintage chic, that’s how I’d describe La Chambre aux Oiseaux. Upon S’s suggestion and initiative on making the reservation a couple of weeks in advance, we met on a slightly overcast Saturday afternoon for brunch in this café just off the Canal St Martin. They run two seatings for brunch, at 11.30am and at 1.30pm, and they were busy during both services. Clearly a favourite among many of the crowd of very fashionably dressed Parisians – yours truly not included given how carelessly my wardrobe is put together… – and for good reasons: the service is friendly, the food is delicious, and the ambiance is homey.

For €23 brunch menu, we were each served a glass of fresh orange juice, a cup of hot beverage (chocolate for me, please) served out of dinky porcelain jug, a plate with avocado gazpacho, chicken wrap, ham, boiled egg, salad and cheese slices, accompanied by a selection of crusty breads, and rounded up with a slice of lemon-mandarin meringue tart. You can choose other desserts such as panna cotta, crumble, brownies and tiramisu too.

I was a happy camper. If only I could eat more, I’d ordered another sweet. They looked seriously delectable, sitting atop the counter less than a meter away. Perhaps this is a place to come back to for goûter. Caaaaaakes! ;)
