Great list! Just what I was looking for. Have been to nearly all of them!

Great article! I will add all of your suggestions to my list. I was wondering, in planning my first trip to Paris, what time do Parisians typically have lunch?

Hi Lisa,

Parisians usually have lunch at 13h (1pm) but anytime b/w 12-2 is fine.

All the best,

I always use the a prix-fixe lunch menu when in Paris. Thank you for your recommendations. I’ll have more to sample next time!

I can see why lunch would be the most enjoyable meal of the day. Your description was delightful.

Hey Kathy. Thanks for your comment! April weather can be quite erratic. Bring an umbrella and lots of layers! Check out my post on dressing for the weather here:

Great selection: I’d add La Cantine de Quentin just of Canal Saint Martin, and Chateaubriand in the same area. Eating out at lunch is always the best way to go to places that might otherwise be out of budget. As for packing for Paris, always take a map and an umbrella, but there’s some more detailed advice here

I am so glad to see Cafe Constant on your list! I have been going there for many years and the food is always delicious. In fact, I had a better gazpacho at Cafe Constant than I ended up having in Spain! My friend and I are excited about our upcoming stay in the HIP Monceau apartment (April). We have questions for you about what to wear since it is early spring yet will most likely be cold. I’ve never gone this time of year and have no idea what to pack!

Thanks, kathy

P.S. My friend is a cashmere designer and we’re hoping to wear some of her line during the trip… what do you think?
