Safely sheltered from the haughty, fur-coated crowds of St. Germain, Eggs&Co. is a great place to have breakfast, brunch or lunch accompanied with a decent cup of coffee. 

Having opened the business in 2007, fantastically lively French owner Franklin Reinhard initially contented himself with Illy beans, before making the shift to Cafe Lomi coffee in 2011, originally with the help of barista Thomas Lehoux (Caféothèque, Ten Belles). With the availability of well-made coffee, Franklin made sure that people weren't only coming to his cafe for the fantastic food. 

Far from being a simple coffee shop, Eggs&Co. offers a tasty and creative selection of egg-based dishes. Poached, scrambled, fried, omelette, you name it. Taika Waititi's Boy would be proud. The plentiful brunches on offer are between 20-30€, while the stand-alone starters, mains and desserts range from about 7-20€. All of this is enjoyed in a comfortably tight, homely setting, featuring a plethora of egg-shaped décor and friendly staff. 

Once you've had your fix, don't forget to go and laugh at all the poor fools sipping on bitter 4€ espressos at the historic Café de Flore, right around the corner.
