Café

“Located in the heart of the Bassin de la Villette in the 19th arrondissement, the Pavillon des Canaux has sparked the interest and curiosity of many Parisians. It may be due to the fact that it resembles a large doll’s house where you can dine in any room, including the colourful bathroom. Order your preferred beverage with a plate of avocado on toast or enjoy a full brunch plate during the weekend at this quirky café located by the river.”
