Join The Travel Tester in search for great hotspots around the world. This week, we'll visit the lovely sandwich shop Picto in Paris!

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!

The Entree

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.

The Interior

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!

 

 

The Food

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!
