DINE IN SAVOIE MONT BLANC
Fine dining and hip, healthy eateries. Take a look at some of the best places to eat.
Such is the popularity of Holybelly and its wares that whatever time of the day you choose to visit, you’re likely to be greeted by a lively and jovial environment.
Serving all manner of delights for the brunch crowd, this café has built up a hugely loyal fanbase of local regulars, but also attracts visitors from different parts of Paris as well as a large number of tourists, eager to wash down their food with a fine cup of coffee.
The constantly changing menu has plenty of options such as sweet and savoury stacks of pancakes, home-made granola, bread from a local bakery and the mouth-watering black rice porridge, cooked in vanilla bean-infused coconut milk.
Holybelly opened in October 2013 and is co-owned by Sarah Mouchot and Nico Alary who place a large emphasis on friendliness and creating a welcoming vibe.
They have spent time perfecting their craft all over the world and say they have tried to recreate a Melbourne style café feel. It’s an easy one for Brits visiting Paris too, as staff speak English.
As you would expect, the duo are keen coffee connoisseurs, sourcing in-season beans from farmers who work hard to deliver a quality product, allowing the team to consistently concoct a fine cup.
Located on Rue Lucien Sampaix, Holybelly 5 is the current place to go but Sarah and Nico also have another property about 150 yards away on the same street, Holybelly 19, which is due to re-open soon.
Handily for travellers, it’s close to Paris’ two largest train stations; Gare du Nord and Gare de l’est.
