Centreville – Best oeuf cocotte in Paris

By Paul Wright

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. And as summertime comes, it’s even more worth a stop off. 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 Apero 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. And she’s Centreville’s bigger sister. In contrast, Centreville has a contemporary edge, and Pause offering is a tad more on the kitschy-fun-side.
