This Canal-side cafe in the bobo 10th arrondissement may be new, but the homely interior and heart and soul behind its opening make it feel like an old favorite already.Owned by Léna and Hervé, La Chambre aux Oiseaux is named after Léna's grandmother's haberdashery which was nicknamed as such as birds would come and sit on the window sill. Decorated by Hervé - who is both an interior designer and a baker by trade - the cosy cafe's style is reminiscent of their grandparents' homes, with floral wallpaper, vintage furniture and a plethora of mismatched nicknacks to add a touch of charm.
Settle into a comfy armchair for breakfast, lunch or tea, or brunch on the weekends. The menu features a selection of club sandwiches, seasonal salads, scrambled eggs and freshly-baked breads all washed down with homemade hot or cold drinks (cappuccino, milkshakes, lemonade) or natural wines.
