Le Parisien

By Christina Kim - November 28, 2015


Brunch is quite a new idea to me; well, not because I do not know what brunch is all about but mainly because I don't really get to really do brunch.

I am an early riser which means breakfast is always that first meal that greets my body when I wake up. After breakfast I would get about doing my stuffs; with probably a mid-morning snack and then it would be lunch.
There was never really that slot for brunch; which is really a combination of both breakfast and lunch.
Well, to be frank, perhaps it was just not that appealing to me due to the oddity of the in-between hours particularly in my case.

Even on weekends, I still stick to my breakfast and then the lunch routine, although there is that occasional time when I do get around to brunch when meeting up with my friends, or perhaps when the family is up to it (which is really, really rare too).

Brunch has become that part of the culture that it is just assimilated into the urban lifestyle and mind not, but it seems to be quite a phenomenon popularized everywhere.
It is no surprise that this trend has paved the way for the boost in the growth of cafes opening everywhere offering brunch options as part of their menu to attract the urbanites.

It is officially a thing.

There are times when I really love to hunt for a good cafe just to chill out; for their drinks and maybe light bites, though the availability of meals would add more to the appeal factor.

The cafes are getting really creative these days too.

Long gone are the days when cafes are purely serving only food and drinks, but nowadays cafes could double up as a boutique, a retail store, and most popularly book stores; which are really growing in popularity these days (I'd really love that!).

Getting that much needed time to relax with a cuppa, while browsing through magazines or even the interesting memorabilia on display and on sale, is just a great way to while that free time on a weekend.

Add to that the ambiance which could transport one to imagine themselves in a different location, is just the perfect way to sum up the equation to define a really chic cafe.






Found this cafe which meets all of that criteria; and gave me that opportunity to just lounge around while waiting for my flight.

It was all in the ambiance, though the food could have taken part of the limelight which was obviously overshadowed by the intimate details which went into creating that conducive environment.










The best part about the cafe is the availability of space and also the mementos on sale in the boutique downstairs which retails quite a unique combination of curios in their inventory.

It is that trendy boutique cafe; just perfect for breakfast, brunch or just chilling out.

The ample and wide space concept created here also gives one that peace of mind to work with their free wi-fi and peaceful environment.















This is my idea of a perfect morning/afternoon, and I think I could just get used to the idea of brunch right about now.

The best part is, I feel like I was in Paris, the whole time.

If that's what brunch is all about, I wouldn't mind to brunch all day, and bring on the Parisian mode.

As long as someone remind me when the sun is down.
