Any place coming from les frères Moussié will always be guaranteed a trendy clientele. But unlike Chez Jeannette, their rather snooty and posturing hipster institution, the brothers have created a much more friendly and polished place here at Le Parisien.

Sporting a sleek retro-futuristic neon interior and a handful of outdoor tables on the sidewalk, the café is open for business from early to late every day of the week. While the menu – salads, sandwiches and bistro classics such as steak tartare as well a selection of daily specials – offers few surprises, service is almost suspiciously welcoming.

It’s a convenient stop when out and about in the happening Haut-Marais area – it’s just a block away from the Gaîté Lyrique arts centre – and the thirty-something crowd is usually good for a little people watching. Drop in at breakfast for some farm-fresh eggs (scrambled, Bénédicte or omelette), in the afternoon for a classic Paris-Brest pastry, or for drinks at night when the volume, along with the energy level, goes up.
