The thing is, when it comes to eating in this neighborhood, it becomes hard not to end up in one of the tourist traps. Guess what? We’ve saved you some time and picked five places for you to eat on the go around Montmartre. Don’t worry – there are no overheated
French croque-monsieurs or fast-food restaurants to come!

1. La Popote du 18

La Popote du 18 - Montmarte - eating on the go - Paris

For lunch, Parisians love to come to this bistro-style restaurant to order club sandwiches or saladiers gourmands. These appetizing salads are accompanied with foie gras, smoked duck breast or goats’ cheese to really tantalize your taste buds. During the weekend, the brunches are also worth popping in for. As the French say: Miam!

2. Le Comptoir des Belettes

La Café des Belettes - - Montmarte - eating on the go - ParisWhen we push open the door to this charmingly retro restaurant we know exactly what to order: the tarts and French tartines of course; the restaurant’s specialties!

Sweet or savory, there is something for everyone! When it gets warmer, we can’t resist eating outside on the terrace and sipping on a glass of wine…

3. Le Café Tabac

Cafe Tabac - Montmarte - eating on the go - Paris

As the name suggests, this spot was a former café selling cigarettes. Today, the place has been transformed into a lovely cafeteria owned by a French-Australian couple. For lunch, we go for a soup or a delightful sandwich. For the goûter, we never say no to one of their lattes accompanied with one of the mouthwatering viennoiseries.

O’Bubble offers two foreign specialties: yummy bagels and a large choice of bubble teas; a tea-based beverage with tapioca and fruity flavors which comes from Taiwan. The mix may seem surprising at first but trust us, this marriage works perfectly! And the icing on the cake: the owner is as lovely as he is welcoming!
