As we were making our way to Saint-Denis in Paris to collect photos and stories on our article about the EURO2016 for the Budget Traveller, we spend some time looking around in the neighbourhood of our hotel for a bite to eat.
It was harder then we expected, most places didn’t open early or just served coffee! We -almost- walked into Starbucks when we spotted Picto and didn’t have to think twice. This was the place for us, for sure!
Picto in Paris, France
As soon as we spotted the nice blue window front, we knew right away we found a winner! You can sit outside, but as it was a bit chilly still in the morning, we decided to have breakfast inside.
We felt immediately welcome in this little sandwich shop! The girl behind the till was very patient with us, as well as the guy making the sandwiches, who kindly explained our different options and made the sandwich fresh in front of us.
There is enough seating inside, either on stools or in the little booth that we’re in
I LOVED this map on the wall, showing where all their produce comes from!
There was even a binder where you can find more information on the local producers they work with -for ALL their products!
With so much local produce, of course everything at Picto is fresh and tastes great. We went for a sandwich, just a simple one with ham and cheese, but it was MASSIVE and we could have easily shared it! Also, the orange juice was fresh and Nick said the coffee was good too. Happy!
Perhaps not the cheapest place, but definitely stylish and tasty!
Another close up, just because it was so good :)
What can we say, nice people, great interior, only local food and a sandwich so big, we didn’t need to eat for hours after devouring it :) Picto is a great place to start your day of sightseeing in Paris!
