Shopping can be exhausting, especially in the very crowded neighbourhood that is Opera Garnier with its department stores Galeries Lafayette and Le Printemps on noisy boulevard Haussmann. But no one wants like to miss these shops while visiting Paris.
After an exhausting struggle against the crowd, here are three restaurants close by, you will love to have lunch, dinner or just drink at. We’ve tried three of them so you don’t have to.
The trendy Vietnamese one: Hanoi Ca Phê
Craving a giant bo bun or bao burger in a trendy and welcoming modern Vietnamese canteen? Hanoi Ca Phê, opened during the Summer 2015, will be up to your expectations. Excellent creative cocktails as well. More pictures here.
Where? 30 boulevard des Italiens, 75009 Paris. Metro: Opéra (Lines 3, 7, 12)
The one with a view: Deli-Cieux, the Terrace on top of the Printemps
Don’t go anywhere far after your shopping, the restaurant you’re looking for is on the top floor of the Department Store Le Printemps Home. With a 180° view of Paris, if the weather allows it, it’s going to be one of the most memorable lunch of your trip. Don’t go there for the food (nothing memorable about it) but for the incredible view and the fresh air after a painful but rewarding fight with the crowd. Open until 8pm (10pm on Thursday), for a drink.
Where? 64 boulevard Haussmann, 75009 Paris. Metro station: Chaussée d’Antin (Line 9)
The quiet and romantic one: Le Patio Opéra
Right by the Opera house, Palais Garnier. From the street you won’t see nothing. Come inside the restaurant opened three years ago and seat in the backyard terrace. Ask for the table with armchairs. A creative menu (exquisite risottos) will make you anger go away in a peaceful lounge atmosphere. Dates or business meetings usually happen here.
Where? 5 Rue Meyerbeer, 75009 Paris. Metro station: Opera (Lines 3, 8)
The trendy one: Mojo Kitchen Bar
A street away from Opera, this lively decorated kitchen bar with its home made soups, salades, sandwiches, planchas, is a local hit at lunch time. At night time, the restaurant opened in 2012 turns into a friendly wine bar.
Where? 23 rue Louis Le Grand 75002 Paris. Metro station: Opera (Lines 3, 8)
Where: Déli-Cieux - Le Printemps, Boulevard Haussmann, Paris, France
Metro: Havre-Caumartin (Line 9)
