From fishcakes to the full english, The Bottle Shop is Paris’ best damn weekend fry-up.
Brunch is something lost in translation when it comes to Paris. Australians crave avocado on wholegrain toast with a crumble of fetta and a splash of olive oil.
The English want a fry up with beans, sausages, toast and real bacon. I imagine Americans find it difficult to locate a decent bagel, let alone the lashings of cream cheese found on ever corner of New York.
But at the Bottle Shop everyone wins. You can have your fry up, you can have a breakfast burrito, you can have a bloody mary and you can listen to the Stones. They pump out the best weekend breakfast in the city, without needing to break the bank for a buffet of food your hangover probably cannot tolerate.
With €5 (actually spicy) Bloody Mary’s and Mimosa’s, it’s not only wholly satiating but inexpensive. Not to mention the bottomless (filter) coffee or the HP sauce a volonté.
Served until 4pm on Sunday’s, it will get you out of trouble when you didn’t get up early enough to catch the Sunday shops.
Poached, scrambled or fried it is a guaranteed pick-me-up.
