One of the latest editions to the 18th arrondissement’s fine selection of neighbourhood eateries is Hope Cafe – an organic grocery-cafe hybrid in the residential area of Lamarck. Much in the same vein as Rose Bakery or Jeanne A, you can pop into Hope Cafe to for a bite to eat and pick up some seasonal veg, jam and other goodies from the epicerie section to restock your larder on your way out. It’s also a great pitstop for the afternoon with soya lattes and fresh fruit juices on offer. We sampled the two burgers they have on the menu on our trip – a delicious veggie one with a slice of apple as a garnish (a nice touch), and a classic beefburger, both served with an organic salad and fried potatoes, and washed down with a natual sulfite-free wine.
