Breton-style brunch is not for the faint hearted at Chez Casimir.
There are a host of great things about Chez Casimir’s generous brunch. A distinct lack of tourists, a serve-yourself cave of natural/organic wines, and least of all, a procession of hearty breton cooking arriving at non-specific interludes at your table.
If you are looking for the perfect place to have a long, boozy and inexpensive Parisian afternoon, this is the place for you.
For starters, there are communal bowls of savoury delights in all colours of the rainbow. Radishes, carrots, beetroot, pickled cucumber, salmon, green beans, fresh cheeses, to which you help yourself after a warming cup of soup.
Nestled between black pudding and robust chunks of pâté, you will find some of the most luscious butter one will ever taste, alongside a few different hard cheeses and silky rich mayonnaise – a perfect companion to the bulots or the radishes.
As you help yourself to the cold items, hot dishes start to role out in no particular order. An omelette, mussels cooked in white wine, hearty lamb served on a bed of white beans.
And after this literal assault on your digestive system, you are still free to roam the cheese board or attack the full buffet of cold desserts. All of this – in unlimited quantity – for €25.
The wines are equally delightful at equally delightful prices. If they get endorsement from Not Drinking Poison in Paris, you know that you are in good hands.
Impress fellow hipsters: by taking them to a hipster-free Paris brunch that doesn’t suck.
