This pastry, restaurant, and tea house located in the heart of Paris serves exquisite food. Opened every day except Mondays and Tuesdays and closing at 7:30 pm every evening, the place makes some of the best pastries in the area.

Located at 500meters from the Picasso Museum, you’ll be doubting if you are still in a Museum with the Bontemps’s chic and sober furniture, crockery, and decorations. You’ll see dozens of opaline on the ceiling, a mermaid bar, vintage armchairs, and mismatched crockery which has been carefully selected, giving the Bontemps an Alice in Wonderland ambiance.

Whether it is for a simple croissant, a few pastries, or a savory snack in le Marais, Bontemps is the place to go. The Bontemps proposes pastries, snacks, brunch, and savory meals such as plates composed of tomato pie, melon, sliced baby zucchinis, chorizo, and melting burrata. Some say that Bontemps serves the best citrus tart in Paris, because of that we suggest trying the delicious chocolate tart, the small shortbread made of organic bergamot from Sicily, and the seasonal fruits cake for an unordinarily tasteful experience.

On Sundays, the Bontemps hosts sophisticated and very complete brunches for the price of 38 euros.

Fun fact: At number 49 of the same street was located the Maison Commune in 1910, on January 2 Lenine who lived in Paris attended a ‘’revolutionary goguette’’. (The ‘’goguette’’ is an old festival social practice in Belgium and France which consisted of gathering a rather masculine friendly group to spend a good time celebrating and singing together.
