Café Oberkampf’s Newest Venture: Café Méricourt

HiP Paris Blog checks out Cafe Mericourt, Cafe Oberkampf's brother cafe.

Café Méricourt, Café Oberkampf’s grand frère cafe, has just opened around the corner from the local favorite’s first location.

Café Méricourt is intimate yet light, fitted out with classic blonde timber, green accented window frames, lovely straw lampshades, and gold painted columns for a touch of bling.

When I visited, I enjoyed sitting solo at the bar, where the super friendly staff chatted with me as I waited for my food.

Café Méricourt’s flat white was the closest I’ve found in Paris to Melbourne’s iconic incarnation (can you tell I’m Australian?), and the sandwich agneau was equally impressive. The confit lamb shoulder was mouth-wateringly good, served with a delicious tomato chutney, balsamic salad and creamy coleslaw with labneh and mint.

While I was there, people walked in who had come from Café Oberkampf which was either full or they were told about the second address and had come to try it, proving the new spot to be an instant success. If you’re worried about grabbing a seat to enjoy coffee or lunch, rest assured tables can be reserved online.
