The Hardware Société is one of Melbourne’s most famous cafés and now it’s in Paris in Montmartre, next to the Sacré Coeur. You’ll be so hungry from climbing the hill, you’ll happily order one of their calorie-filled brunches. Inside it’s all Aussie chic – butterfly wallpaper, Ton chairs, marble-topped guéridons – and as you’d expect from an Aussie-Parisian mix, the coffee is exceptional. Stuff yourself with delectable bircher muesli with rhubarb, hazelnuts and dehydrated clementines, marvellous viennoiseries and pastries from Bo (served all day), the lobster eggs Benedict with a squid-ink black bun and citrus-infused hollandaise sauce, or French toast thickly spread with strawberry jam, chocolate ganache, fruit or toasted coconut. The food is insanely delicious, and the café is perfect for people-watching; you won’t want to leave.
