Rose Bakery Review
On a street lined with French food shops selling produce, fish, bread, and cheeses, this British-run café-restaurant might easily go unnoticed—if it weren't for the frequent line out the door. Whitewashed walls, naive art, and concrete floors provide the decor, and organic producers supply the ingredients for food so fresh and tasty it draws crowds to feast on fresh juices, salads, soups, and hot dishes, such as delicious risotto, followed by carrot cake, sticky toffee pudding, or lemon tarts. The nostalgic can buy homemade granola, British marmalade, or baked beans to take home. Rose Bakery also has branches at 30 rue Debelleyme in the Marais and a spot in the Bastille, inside the Galerie Maison Rouge, at 10 boulevard de la Bastille. Weekend brunch is popular, so plan to arrive early.
