Biglove Caffè: Brunch in Paris, Italian Style

Wednesday, July 05, 2017

The Big Mamma group has taken the Paris foodie world by storm with their incredible Italian food including their pizzas, truffle pasta and tiramisus. I had been to almost all of their restaurants except for the only one which serves brunch: Biglove Caffè.

Knowing that I only had a couple of weeks left in Paris and being the brunch lover that I am, I knew that I had to visit before I left, so that's exactly what Marie and I did one Sunday morning.

We woke up bright an early to beat the queues and prepared ourselves for carb heaven...

We decided to order lots of food and share it all (which in hindsight was actually far too much food - definite food babies appeared post-brunch). We ordered:

Pancake aux fruits frais

A big pancake made with buffalo ricotta, seasonal fruits (in our case, strawberries) and almonds

Le bigboy pain perdu

You had the choice of either a single or double serving of their incredible pain perdu. We went for the single serving which came with mascarpone cream from Lombardy (where Milan is) and raspberries - to die for.

Sexy banana cookie

As the name suggests, a sexy banana cookie with big chunks of chocolate and hazelnuts from Piemont.

Big brioche à la sicilienne

Super soft and fluffy which came with nutella...(!!!)

Our favourites were the two mains, the pain perdu and the pancake. To be honest I think that the pain perdu won - but only just! Definitely go if you're a brunch lover (and carb lover). Other options are a yoghurt with granola, avocado proscuitto toast, truffle eggs, eggs benedict and a hummus/bean concoction, so something for everyone!

They also are the only Big Mamma Group restaurant which serves gluten free pizzas which means that you can try their heavenly pizzas even if you're gluten intolerant or allergic.

After all that food we were in desperate need of a walk. Luckily the cafe is situated in the heart of Le Marais (map etc. below) so we headed off to do some exploring (and burn off some of that breakfast).
