I can’t wait for spring to come, go to Paris, and sit back and relax on the sunny terrace of one of my favorite cafés in my all-time favorite city. Situated next to the Square du Temple on a quiet corner in the 3rd arrondissement, The Broken Arm is the perfect place for a tasty breakfast or lunch in the sun.
Unfortunately, a decent coffee in France is not that easy to find but The Broken Arm serving Solberg & Hansen coffee is one of the exceptions in Paris. Next to good coffee they provide a small, daily changing, menu of sandwiches, salads and soups. I enjoyed a green pea soup with mint and lemon thyme croutons.
Don’t worry if the sun doesn’t shine. The clean, minimal, but cosy interior with a typical French tiled floor and lots of plants makes this place a lovely hangout for rainy days as well. And when it’s too busy to find yourself a table right away you can entertain yourself in their next door concept store and try again when you’re done shopping.
