Chez Casimir – “Good things”

When a friend first said “let’s meet at Chez Casimir for brunch”, I somehow expected tagines or generously sumac-topped dishes to be on the menu. But now, this translates as “let’s go and have the best brunch in town”.

A brother of La Pointe du Grouin and Chez Michel, Chez Casimir is conveniently located as a pit stop for Eurostar travellers, right by the Gare du Nord. During the week, it parades as a Breton restaurant but on the weekend, it becomes a brunch-buffet extravaganza called “Traou Mad”, meaning “good things” in Breton.

As you walk in, on the round table by the bar you’ll see your buffet of starters. These range from grated carrots, patés, octopus salad, tabbouleh…(you name it!) with which you can pile your plates up high, but be careful, there’s more to come.

After your enthusiastically served starters, a set menu of hot food will make its way to your table, often consisting of mussels, an omelette, soup and a main meat dish. When your stomach’s feeling ready to wave the white flag, you’ll turn to see the king of dessert buffets.

To top it off, the staff are all smiles and happy to chit-chat in French or English. 

I think I’ve been here 3 times in the past month.. consider my approval firmly stamped across Chez Casimir!

PS. Call and book for brunch to avoid disappointment.
