Today I had the pleasure of discovering a true gem while enjoying breakfast with a friend. This dear spot is called Otium and is located just below Pigalle. While I had heard only wonderful things about the juice bar and veggie food joint, I was pleased to finally give it a try myself.
Otium breaths good and happy vibes. I felt sincerely calm from the moment I entered the cafe to the moment I left. I started with a Matcha Latte and a Blue in Green juice, composed of apples, pears, cucumbers, spinach, ginger and spirulina. P.s. The juice is 100% homemade in their kitchen. The combination got me going, boosting me with positive energy for the day ahead. After spending hours chatting and relaxing, I decided to take home their morning bowl and chia pudding for later. These two dishes blew me away. The morning bowl was copious and beautifully composed, consistant of their homemade granola, soy yogurt, peanut butter, bananas and mint. Truly sublime. And for a little treat? I enjoyed their chia pudding (mixed with coconut and granola, yum!) Finally, drum roll please, their ginger shot. I promise you, this is the only address in Paris that has a 100% all ginger shot. It was strong and all around excellent.
Time to go back to try their lunch bowls, which are 100% homemade consisting of only the freshest and most seasonal ingredients, which change daily. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this good vibes spot. Please go, chill, taste and just enjoy. Otium Cold Press & Veggie Food – 56 Rue de la Rochefoucauld, 75009 Paris. You can be sure to find me there.
