Exit the metro at Marx Dormoy and you’ll find yourself in the middle of a heaving main boulevard crammed with traffic and crowds of people. But don’t panic, just around the corner you’ll find the perfect place to escape all this hustle and bustle; the charming Brasserie L’Olive.
Located opposite a thriving covered food market on the corner of a pedestrian square, Brasserie L’Olive is popular with a mixed crowd of families and locals of all ages. Brightly coloured chairs and welcoming staff add to the friendly, neighbourhood feel of this cute place. In summer the terrace overlooking the market square is the perfect spot to catch some sun but sadly even though I’m Scottish it’s a bit chilly for me come winter! Luckily there’s plenty of room inside too and if you can bag one of the seats by the window then you can still do your fair share of people watching.
Brasserie L’Olive is particularly fun on Sundays, Parisiens are big fans of brunch and this is a great spot to indulge in this cool Parisien habit.
