Richard, this resto sounds like my kind of place! I'm a soup-lover too, and I'm always looking for places that experiment a bit more with soups. I've got to check this out...

And I'm also on the lookout for more reasonably-priced places to have a great 3-course meal. This sounds like a winner! I used to know a few in the 18th, but I'm no longer living in Paris intramuros, unfortunately... That may change (here's hoping!).

For lunch, I have a fave right at métro 4 septembre: a tiny place called Stanie's. They do mainly sandwiches, but also soups-of-the-day. The owner is a young couple who used to work in marketing. Rebecca's daily soups are always inventive and delicious! Rue de Monsigny, if I'm not mistaken. Modern deco, and the food is fresh and always quite good.

Bonjour Richard, An other great place for soups is Le Bar à Soupes at 33, rue de Charonne in my next of the wood. You can check their daily selection at their website
All fresh produces with interesting mix of flavors and a little price. Great rapport qualité / prix.

Next time you are in Belleville stop by Le Vieux Belleville to discover the Parisian version of a Karaoke evening. THe food is traditional bistro fare but it the sing-a-long to old French song complete with accordeon that is a most see.

A bientôt.


Another great soup&tartine place is: SPANK
85, Rue Albert
75013 Paris
