Porridge Bar in Paris? I could hardly believe it when I discovered BOL Porridge Bar a few weeks ago. How much haven’t I longed for a healthy breakfast spot in Paris that opens before 8 o’clock in the morning? Even though BOL Porridge Bar is located quite far away from me (I need to change metro twice) it doesn’t bother me much. I’m ready to travel far for some good healthy breakfast. Especially when I know a bowl full of heartwarming delicious porridge is waiting for me <3

At BOL Porridge Bar you can enjoy a bowl with porridge sucrée or salée, sweet or savoury porridge. The sweet porridge comes in three different versions: Beurre salée/cannelle (salted butter and cinnamon), pomme/caramel beurre salé/amande (apples, salted caramel and almonds) and oven-baked banana, syrup, pumpkin seeds and roasted sesame seeds. I have already tried all three versions, and also made my own versions by swapping the toppings. They are all tasty and very delicious, creamy texture and the most of the ingredients are organic. So far i’ve only had their breakfast bowls but if you go there on lunchtime there are porridge bowls wih savoury flavours. The portions are very generous, the coffee of good quality, the hot chocolate is also delicious and they do make fresh juice as well. The place is small, yet very calm in the mornings, sometimes I’ve been there all alone, and I love that. But maybe that won’t be the case as soon as more and more people will find out about this lovely gem? Minimalistic interior, light colours, very Scandinavian and cozy…no wonder why I feel at home :-)

[pullquote width=”300″ float=”left”]porridge is the key to a long and healthy life[/pullquote]A bowl of porridge is not only yummy but also packed with nutrients, did you know that according to scientists porridge is the key to a long and healthy life? I will not list up all benefits on why porridge is the new power breakfast, my favourite breakfast since my childhood and I love it.

Now you know, BOL Porridge Bar is, as they would say in French, my “coup de cœur ” (favourite) healthy breakfast spot in Paris <3 Thanks Audrey and Maaike for coming up with this brilliant idea of opening a porridge bar in Paris!
