Best breakfast spots in Champagne

Breakfast in Champagne

Breakfast in champagne is my second favourite thing to do, after, well, drinking natural champagne. Stepping outside your hotel and walking to a nice little café gives your champagne trip that little extra, especially when you’re treated to fine pastry and good coffee. Below, I’ve listed my go-to places when I’m in either Reims or Épernay. Obviously, there are more breakfast spots in both cities, but these are my personal favourites.

1. Pâtisserie Waïda et Fils– Reims

When I think about breakfast in Champagne, I think about Waïda. They’re not your typical breakfast hotspot, though.

Walk into their patisserie in Reims, and you’ll be instantly blinded by neon colours and pink blingbling. It’s like a unicorn exploded in there! The ambiance is great, though, and their food is simple and tasty. I often go there after a night of champagne tasting, as Waïda knows how to take care of champagne hangovers.

There’s soft music playing in the background, old-fashioned interior and cosy corners where you can hide from the sun. Waïda serves crispy bread, flaky croissants and my favourite: buttery scrambled eggs that warm your soul. Highly recommend them!

2. Maison Vincent Dallet – Épernay

When you walk passed Maison Vincent Dallet in Épernay, you wouldn’t say you’re passing a breakfast hotspot. But apart from being a classy chocolaterie, they’re also a salon du thé, and a pretty good one too. I particularly remember their croissants and coffee, which are both very good as they’re so damn French: simple yet high quality. From your table, you have a nice view on the streets of Épernay, which is an added bonus. God I love breakfast.
