Oberkampf’s favourite neighbourhood haunt, Café Oberkampf, expands its presence in the quartier with a second site, Café Méricourt, 22 rue de la Folie Méricourt. Following the original site’s tradition of serving fresh, feel-good café cuisine and speciality coffee in a convivial atmosphere, Café Mericourt elaborates on the all-day-brunch offer. On the menu, is an assortment of house-made mueslis, pancakes with ricotta and seasonal fruit, a gourmand’s breakfast roll of bacon, egg and chilli jam served on fresh brioche, and the famous Shakshuka — baked eggs — which has moved down the block from Café Oberkampf. Also available, are specialities like a seven-hour-lamb sandwich, a vibrant green bowl for the health conscious (with quinoa, avocado, greens and pickled veggies) and an ever-changing weekday lunchtime special. Bookings available.
