Pizza Le Coq is a tiny place which exclusively sells take away pizza (and a few pasta dishes I think), that you can order from the pavement through the window of the premises.
The pizzas are said to be for 2 people (actually, they’re the same size as most pizzas served in restaurants, so if you’re hungry, you could easily have one on your own), and cost only € 5, which is a very cheap price for Paris.
There’s a long list of pizzas displayed outside, divided into three different bases: tomato sauce; sour cream; and more original, pesto (basil sauce).
Be aware that some people order their pizzas by telephone, so even if there’s only a little line, it might take long to be served (so you may ask for an estimation of the waiting time).
Since there are no tables to eat your pizzas at, most clients are people who live in the district and take their pizzas home. But there are also nice places to eat your pizza outside if the weather is OK: my favourite is the Jardin Hector Malot (located 17, rue Hector Malot, about 250 m South-East along Avenue Daumesnil), one of the entrances of the elevated Promenade Plantée. In summer, it is a great place to enjoy your pizzas, in the shade, on comfortable benches, before a nice digestive walk along this former railway, now colonised by flowers.
