Holybelly Café In Paris

When in Paris, visit HOLYBELLY CAFE! It is small, super friendly and they serve good food and coffee. Can it be any better? Yes! The weekend special of scrambled eggs with a rustic pork sausage, onion jam and hash brown was mouthwatering good! As a true supporter of sharing dishes, we ordered sweet American pancakes which were to die for (hopefully they share the recipe with us – keep you posted! ;). And thumbs up for the freshly pressed jus de pommes from a local producer!

“HOLYBELLY opened its doors about five months ago”, owner and Kinfolk contributor Nico Alary told me. And most of the time, there is a long queue to get in on Saturdays (they don’t take reservations). I can’t blame them! The place has aninternational feel to it. And you can tell they are having fun: pay attention to their outside signing with remarkably nice/funny quotes.

Next to serving good coffee, they have peculiar way to serve tea: the mugs are placed on the bar with the leafs of tea in it and a tiny clock to track the exact minutes the tea should extract. Maintaining quality, don’t you think?

This is the perfect spot for late lunch after wandering through the streets of Paris! When are you coming to Amsterdam, HOLYBELLY? I will be the first in that queue!
XX, Michelle
