Paperboy Paris. Did you know that I’d started writing about restaurants when I was in Paris? Before that I mainly focused on fashion and travel topics. Paris had and still has so many great restaurants to offer. Paperboy is one of the cool brunch places I wanted to go in such a long time. It was the perfect decision to start my little time in Paris there.
Café in Paris
Paperboy lies in the Northern part of the Marais. It’s a small café offering delicious brunch options. The interior is hip Parisian with a touch of Scandinavian. The bicycle inside is definitely the coolest decoration. I sat down on the counter closed to the window and ordered an iced latte (5€!!) while flipping through the menu. Well, hello Parisian prices! Coffee starting from 2€ up to 5€, cold drinks cost 5€.
FOOD & DRINKS
I took the salmon tataki which was such a great option. The combination with the mi-cuit au sesame and soy sprouts matched perfectly with the avocado and raw salmon. So delicious! But two sandwiches were way too much for me and I saved the other one for the airport later on. The coffee was delicious too and I was already a happy kid.
- Paperboy meat(15€) with pastrami, smoked turkey, œuf poché, coleslaw, cheddar, aocado and more
- Salmon tataki (13€) in a brioche bread with mi-cuit au sésame and avocado
- Açai bowl(10€)
- or a typical Pain perdu (7€)
All of the dishes can be topped with extra and eggs. All dishes are homemade and you definitely taste this.
- On weekends they also offer a “formule brunch” (24€) as it’s called in France.
I’ll definitely come back to Paperboy during my next visit. Their sandwiches look way too tasty and next time I’ll have to try the Pain Perdu! Definitely a must.

I wish you a wonderful day!
My layover in Paris was definitely not planned. I took off in Berlin in direction Paris. As we got closer to the French capital the captain announced that we cannot land in Paris due to the strong weather. We ended up in Lille and flew back to Paris around 2am. Of course, I’ve missed my connection flight to Tokyo and Julia had to leave without me. This was definitely the peak of my streak of bad luck. It felt like Friday 13th. My bad luck had already started in the morning at work where my PowerPoint didn’t save and I had to redo all my work. I nearly missed my flight to Paris because of the long queue at the security check-in. Meanwhile I locked out my roomies I’ve left my keys inside. 1,5 hours later and 270€ poorer the door was open. My nerves were raw…
Memories in PARIS…
After a short night at the airport hotel I decided spontaneously not to stay at the airport the whole day. I was ready to set foot on Parisian ground again. I hadn’t visited the city in 2,5 years.
Weird. Emotional. Beautiful.
There were so many emotions coming up. So many beautiful memories, which most of them I’d shared with my ex-boyfriend. Maybe that was the reason I didn’t want to come back. I’d definitely had the feeling that I’ve seen most of Paris. After the day yesterday I feel like I absolutely need to come back. Baby steps, though and only for a short weekend. I’ll have to get used to Paris again.
The day started with a delicious breakfast at Paperboy (I’ll post more about the café in a separate post). Afterwards I started my stroll through Le Marais– thanks god my trolley has four wheels! From there I walked until Notre Dame cathedral. The weather was absolutely amazing.
I followed the Seine until the Musée du Louvre, strolled through the Jardins des Tuileries and said hi to the Eiffel Tower sneaking out behind Musée d’Orsay.
But I’ll never leave Paris with a visit of my favorite place – the Palais Royal. The rose garden bloomed so beautifully. I’ve feel like I’ve taken 100 pictures of it. Unfortunately, there wasn’t enough time for a delicious strawberry sorbet at Café Kitsuné as I had to get back to the airport. I quickly greeted my old apartment building in Rue du Bouloi and took the RER from Les Halles.
A trés bientôt Paris!
I spent some days in Munich last week, which was the perfect opportunity to tick some new Munich places off my list. It’s been a while since my last breakfast recommendation. Last Saturday was perfect to meet up with my girls Irina and Conny for a relaxed breakfast at Café Blá in Haidhausen. The café is indeed a jewel under the Munich daily cafés and coffee roasteries.
Café in Munich
In the calmer neighborhood in Haidhausen, right behind the Deutsches Museum, lies the beautiful Café Blá. The interior is Scandinavian – warm, spreading the “hygge”-vibe and modern. The weather was way too beautiful to sit inside. Luckily, they also have a small terrace in front of the café. Moreover, the sun shines on it alreadyin the morning.
Café Blá belongs to the great coffee roasteries in Munich, among Man Versus Machine, Gang & Gebe oderStandard 26. Since I started working in an office again, I always need my coffee in the morning. It’s part of the perfect start into the morning.
FOOD & DRINKS
Beside small breakfast glasses the café serves waffles in different options. Since I’m not a huge fan of sugared dishes, I would never order or make waffles at home (moreover, I don’t even own a waffle iron). But I’m always in for a salty dish. You can choose your toppings and I went for the salmon-avocado-topping. Along with a light cream cheese it was super delicious.
Until 2pm Café Blá offers its breakfast-waffle-options. You can order them also in a menu, for example along with an orange juice or yoghurt. For lunch they have a daily dish and delicious cakes for the afternoon.
We spent a cozy morning there. I’d definitely come back for the delicious waffles and coffee. Funnily, a friend of mine lives right above the Café but we never made it to meet at Café Blá. I think you know it – time’s always too short!
