Breakfast Things between Madeleine and Tuilleries Metro Stations

e

Hello friends,

We are staying for 5 nights at a hotel between these two metro stations.

We like to pop out for breakfast rather than have breakfast at the hotel. I'm looking for some options for having breakfast out, or popping out and picking up pastries and coffee to take back to the hotel for breakfast in. Some delish croissants, croque monsieurs, baguette, a little cheese.....

Any suggestions in the area?

Thanks very much.

      It isn't the best place in Paris for this, as it isn't very residential (I know I lived on Rue Saint-Honoré for 3 months). There are a few places around Madeleine or head to Marché Saint-Honoré and the shops along Rue du Marché Saint-Honoré. The bakeries tend to be down back streets due ti the high rents in the area.

      You may be better to head out to a bar/café for breakfast rather than trying to do takeaways in the hotel-room. After all why miss out on sitting on a café terrace and watching Paris wake-up in the morning?

          Yep, a couple of doors up from Hotel Costes. Great street for clothes etc but quite a poor area for food shopping and restaurants, probably one of the few. We were quite pleased to move to the 7eme, hence my advice to the OP to get out of the hotel and find a cafe.

        It's going to be tough to find someplace to buy a croque-monsieur or cheese before about 9 am, and as Parigi said, takeout coffee is going to be a real challenge.

        Way easier to just go find a cafe somewhere, but you're still not going to find much on the savoury end of the breakfast spectrum.
