This terrific bakery near the Arc de Triomphe does double duty as a lunch spot, with a nice outdoor terrace and a pretty upstairs dining room that fills quickly with local office workers and business people. You can buy sandwiches and salads (and desserts, of course) to go or sit down for table service (noon–3pm), which gives you the option of trying one of the excellent daily specials, like stuffed vegetables, roast chicken, or osso buco. It’s also open for breakfast, including a mini brunch-like offering of omelet, pastries, and coffee for 15€ (8–11am).
