Visit: Holybelly, Paris

September 05, 2017

With a mantra like “it's good because we care” it’s easy to see why dozens of ravenous diners are eager to pull up a bench at one of Paris' finest specialty coffee shops.

Holybelly is a concept created by couple Sarah Morchot and Nico Alary, who have successfully established something truly unique in ‘La Ville des Lumières’.

Within the diner-like aesthetic of Holybelly 5 (Holybelly 19 will be reopening soon), the ever-changing menu at is determined by seasonal availability and local produce. Expect classic café components such as, pancakes, poached eggs, salads and sourdough, along with more unexpected dishes: traditional French dishes can be served one month, and dishes inspired by cuisines as far away as America’s deep south the next. What you can expect though, is consistently good food, with a menu that will suit all appetites.

Good food, good coffee and good service in a consistent fashion. We take pride in the food we serve you, in the coffee we brew and in the way we welcome you and look after you.

Working with an array of small-batch roasters, their 1930s railroad style mugs come filled with some Europe’s latest and greatest coffee brewers. At the time of writing, the café are pouring none other than Koppi of Göteborg — your favourite roasters’ favourite roaster.

You can take a seats at Holybelly 5 at Rue Lucien Sampaix, where service runs from 9am until 4pm. Bon appétit!
