Fodor's Expert Review Bal Café

$ Montmartre Café Fodor's Choice

Set in a bright, modern space on a tiny street in the lower reaches of Montmartre, the popular Bal Café caters to a diverse clientele who come for the great coffee, delicious homey food, lively crowd, and the art gallery–bookstore. British–French-inspired cuisine with far-flung influences (like kedgeree, a Scottish–Indian rice-and-smoked-haddock dish), tender pancakes, fried eggs with ham and roasted tomatoes, and buttery scones with jam represent some the best comfort food in town. Weekend brunch is an event, with artists, hipsters, expats, and young families enthusiastically enjoying all of the above.
