Centreville Paris – Best oeuf cocotte in Paris

"Centreville" is classic Paris bistro glammed up with a contemporary twist. It's my favourite stop for late Sunday mornings, with the best oeuf-cocotte.

Parse a classic bistro and glam it up with a contemporary twist and voila, welcome to Centreville. It's my favourite stop for late Sunday mornings for the best oeuf-cocotte in the 11th neighbourhood. Never too busy and no reason to book.

In my estimation oeuf-cocotte at Centreville is the real deal. Another reason for stopping off at Centreville is the heated pedestrian-level terrace. It's where I can go, and regardless of the temperature outside, enjoy eating an oeuf-cocotte any time of the year.

So no matter the season, Centreville also satisfies other criteria, like, say, getting a sense of a real French neighbourhood, plus it's a sun-trapped location. In springtime I've ended-up seeing Sunday Brunch as it slips into Apèro hour – meaning you can start a late morning with oeuf-cocotte and then juicy green olives.

Because Centreville is at a neighbourly crossroads, look around and at each corner you'll see bistro, bistro, bistro. One of these is called Pause; Pause Cafe, which since January 2017 has re-opened after getting spruced and refurbished. And she's Centreville's bigger sister. In contrast, Centreville has a contemporary edge, and Pause's offering is a tad more on the kitschy-fun-side.

Approaching the end of summer it's still well worth turning up for the apero-hour around 17:00 to catch the final sunrays of the day.
