Colorful, Japanese-inflected salads, soups, and small plates, as well as a decidedly non-Japanese coffee cream tart, courtesy of a Rose Bakery alum. Two locations, one on the rapidly changing rue du Paradis, another in the already thoroughly bobofied upper Marais.
Coffee and art mix at this neighborhood café and exhibition space near Place de Clichy. Run by the former French-British chefs of Rose Bakery, Le Bal serves strong English-style breakfasts alongside its coffee. It's also open on Sundays.
