La Favorite, Le Marais, Paris

Elodie suggested brunch at Breakfast in America in La Marais to cure our rumbling tummies on the Sunday but when we arrived there was a queue. Not suprisingly when it's been compared to the The Breakfast Club in London. This little place was situated next door and as we were in a rush to meet our bus we decided to chance it.

What a good chance it was! I can't rave about La Favorite enough. I'm still dreaming about the French toast. It was perfectly crispy on the outside and light and fluffy on the inside - there's nothing worse than soggy bread. I opted for maple syrup instead of the custard and it was a very apt choice. The portion size was just right and the banana added a lovely touch. It felt very decadent indeed. We both opted to share the vegetable omelette and my oh my THE CHEESE. They certainly don't scrimp on the filling. It was wonderfully gooey as you cut into the omelette with just the right amount of vegetables to stop it from being too overpowering.

It was such a lovely quaint, traditional-looking restaurant that was the perfect place to end our trip in Paris. This was exactly the sort of place i'd envisioned when I thought of the city. Make sure you add it to your list if you're ever in the French capital. I'd love to go back and sample the lunch/dinner menu!
