5 Pailles
Life is definitely too short for bad coffee. Happily, 5 Pailles serves up plenty of the good stuff, and more. If the jungle print wallpaper and smell of freshly ground beans don't get you in, then the sandwiches definitely will. Try the meat lover: cured ham, roasted pepper, artichokes and onion confit. For dessert, go for the limoncello cake.

Chez Yu
For a lunch on the hop that won't break the bank, grab a Vietnamese sandwich at Chez Yu. If you're a spice fiend then the chicken baguette, with hot pepper and lashings of coriander, should fit the bill. If you've an appetite, opt for the excellent beef Luc-Lac, with fried egg and red rice.

Animal Kitchen
Animal Kitchen shacked up with hip bar Point Ephemère a few years back and has been winning over Parisians with its French-Asian fusion street food ever since. We love the beef burger with the sweet potato chips featuring smoked paprika and coriander.

ABC Belleville - Arts Of Bakery & Coffee

Pizzeria Popolare
What if we told you that we'd found an authentic, Naples-style pizzeria in the heart of Paris? The house margherita here has got itself a fan club. Topped with juicy San Marzano tomatoes and fresh basil, we can't quite believe that it costs just five euros. We'd also highly recommend sharing the 500g of fresh burrata cheese with pistachio pesto, and the artisanal ice cream.  

Address: 111, rue Réaumur, 75002 | Telephone: |

Le Petit Bleu
The tasty tagines and couscous dishes are well worth the climb it takes to reach this tiny gem, perched on a hilly Montmartre street. Happily, the prices are far less steep, and the portions are huge. Try the chicken tagine and if you still have room for something sweet, try the pistachio stuffed sambusa pastries: they're like little parcels of joy.    

Address: 23 rue Muller, 75018 | Telephone: +33142592701 |

Alma the Chimney Cake Factory

Luz Verde
Chef Alexis Delassaux, who cut his teeth at the prestigious Frenchie and Royal Monceau restaurants, has whipped up a frenzy with Luz Verde, his French-Mexican fusion hotspot in the heart of hip South Pigalle. Delassaux gives traditional Mexican food a fresh twist: think octopus with Granny Smith apple and lemon. The cocktails are just as creative, dreamed up by fellow ex-Frenchie bartender Quentin Zuddas. It gets packed so arrive early.

The best pizza we've tasted outside of Rome can be found in the heart of Paris. The Figaro, topped with a medley of 24-month-aged San Daniele prosciutto, burrata, 24-26 month-aged parmesan, tomatoes and fresh rocket, has to be tasted to be believed. Save room for the the tiramisu.

Grand Amour Hotel
For a brunch to write home about head to the restaurant of the Grand Amour Hotel. The menu is put together with passion and flair: think poached eggs with kefta and olive polenta.

Address: 18 Rue de la Fidélité, 75010 | Telephone: +33144160330 |

Wynwood Paris
Of all of the cafés riding the vegan-friendly wave, Wynwood Paris really stands out, largely thanks to its Miami street art (the pastel colour palette is straight out of a Wes Anderson movie). Menu-wise, we fell for the (gluten-free) homemade waffle, which comes with a poached egg, roasted veg and melted mimolette cheese.

Address: 61 rue Charlot, 75003 | Telephone: +33175511253 |

The local lunchtime diners can't get enough of Yeno's French-Korean fusion food. The house Bibimbap has a cult following, and the financier made with matcha tea and glacé cherries is excellent.  

Address: 29 boulevard de Clichy, 75009 | Telephone: +33142857013 |

La Comète
La Comète owes much of its charm to its daring decor (think deep teal walls adorned with vintage mirrors). Don't get us wrong though, the food is worth a mention too. The tuna tartare goes surprisingly well with its side of courgetti, while the cod with sweet pea purée and crispy onion might actually be better than classic fish and chips.

Address: 140 Rue de la Roquette, 75011 | Telephone: +33140240683 |

Le Coin
If you've been running around the city working up an appetite, then dinner at Le Coin should sort you out.

The portions are more than generous but make sure you leave room for the famously light and fluffy chocolate mousse.
