The pastry shop, the hotel, and the Grand Cafe, Fauchon is an institution in the heart of Paris promoting French culinary culture and savoir-faire. Next, to the hotel, the Grand Cafe proposés a selection of food from the terroir; the menu isn’t divided in a conventional manner, so it’s up to you to order one, two or three plates.


The same colors follow you around: pink, black and white. Black tables, pink neon lights, white limoge plates and fine glass cups from Riedel. Golden balls, pending from the ceiling blend with the wall design looking like a beehive.

On the menu: four sections, Vegetables, fish, meat and desserts. Lunch starts with fresh bread and Fauchon olive oil.

Good service and good food... I enjoyed my time: A green risotto with ruffles from burgundy. Blocks of smoked salmon. Artichoke and truffle feuilleté. Autumn salad. My risotto has an intense salty flavor, tender rice, a creamy and gooey sauce... I loved the food! I also enjoyed the service that can be considered upscale for a cafe.


Poultry, ravioli, meat and foie gras, the plates look great! Fine-dining quality with plates decorated like masterpieces. Ravioli of langoustine with black Chinese tea leaves a refreshing flavor in the mouth. The chicken is so tender and balanced. The meat is adequately cooked with a red heart. The foie gras is phenomenal!

I loved it all, quality of famous chefs, small plates more of culinary experiences than fulfilling dishes.


Best for last, never leave without having a dessert; the red mousse lips, the intensely dark chocolate cube, the baba au rhum in a cup and the unconventional millefeuille. Probably a brand name, when brands are not considered sexy anymore giving space to local artisans to shine, but Fauchon managed to remain and shine. Excellent from start to end! 

I was a fan of the brand’s products, now the cafe and hotel, I believe they have a new ambassador.
