Café des Deux Moulins
If you know all about the 2002 Academy Award-winning film, “Amelie,” then you ought to know about Café des Deux Moulins too. Located in Montmartre, this is the exact cafe that appeared in the movie. And while you won't have a quirky, bob-haired ingenue serving you here, you can still enjoy an Easter Sunday brunch with authentic French dishes. Avocado toast is a pretty popular brunch choice, especially since it pairs well with a hot cup of coffee. You can order your eggs either scrambled, fried, or as an omelet too. And don't forget that cheese plate as well!
Part of what makes La Vrais one of the most charming cafes in Paris is its floral facade. This flowery hotspot
will grab your attention from a mile away. Located in the busy 18th arrondissement
, even the area's hustle and bustle aren't enough to distract you from its picturesque aesthetic. And since Easter Sunday is in springtime, you can just imagine how beautiful the blooms decorating this cafe would be! It's perfect for a holiday brunch with your loved ones! Even more so since the food is all fresh and homemade. Be it a chicken supreme with mashed potatoes or a freshly-baked brioche, brunch in Paris never looked and tasted this good!

Eggs & Co
By its name alone, you can already tell that it's one of the best places to enjoy brunch in Paris. Whether it's Easter Sunday or not! Eggs & Co is a fairly compact but chic hotspot on Rue Bernard Palissy in the 6th arrondissement
. Its stark black facade definitely stands out amongst the neutral-toned buildings in the area. Considering its size, it's not exactly the most suitable for a big family brunch on Easter Sunday. Couples of small groups of friends will have no problem here though. Especially when they take a bite out of the many egg dishes they serve. Be it poached, scrambled, or sunny side up, the brunch here is amazing!

Le Café Marly
The views from here alone make it one of the best brunch spots in Paris! Though there's a good number of cafes near the Louvre
, none are as captivating as Le Café Marly. Not only do you get to dine right beside what is perhaps the most famous museum in the world, but you get to enjoy such awe-inspiring views as well. The iconic glass pyramid is right in front of you, glistening in its architectural artistry as you enjoy the finest brunch in Paris. You'll be so enamored by it, you'd hardly notice anything else.

Brasserie Thoumieux is located on Rue Saint-Dominique in the 7th arrondissement
, so you can already tell that this place will cost a pretty penny. But is it worth it even if it's for Easter Sunday brunch? You bet it is! For one thing, the place offers a buffet of French cuisine. You and your company can gorge on as much smoked salmon, ham, and French cheese
as you can. Don't plan to join any Easter Egg hunts or other fun activities later on because you'll definitely be in a food coma after brunch!

Les Deux Magots
And finally, there's Les Deux Magots, one of the most iconic cafes in Paris. Located in Saint-Germain-des-Prés
, it used to be the center of the Cafe Society in Paris. The likes of Simone de Beauvoir, Jean-Paul Sartre, Ernest Hemingway, and Gertrude Stein would hang out here, discuss their ideas, let their creative juices flow, and just live life to the fullest. Its history alone makes it a worthy place for you to check out, let alone dine in for Easter Sunday brunch. As for the menu here, it's haute cuisine at its finest.
