Simon Porte Jacquemus : Café Citron

Located at the Galeries Lafayette Champs-Elysees (XNIXXth arrondissement), the café Citron is the trendy Paris address of 8. Thought by the young French designer Simon Porte Jacquemus and the House Caviar Kaspia, Lemon regales you, for the pleasure of the eyes and taste buds!

The building of the former Virgin Megastore now hosts the new Galeries Lafayette at 60 avenue des Champs-Elysees. On the first floor, Citron invites the South to your plate ... And in the decor.

Solar, the interior of the cafe instantly plunges us into the special atmosphere of the first days of summer. The smell of lemon trees, large ceramic jars, light wood furniture, bright colors, straw carpets, tableware ... immediately evoke memories of holidays on the shores of the Mediterranean.


Food side. The map is locavore and respectful of seasonality. And for good reason ! It was made in close collaboration with the exception of Parisian artisans such as bakery Sain Anthony Courteille (10ème district), the Stohrer pastry by pastry chef Jeffrey Cagnes (2ème district), the Chocolate A Family of Mother, the oldest of Paris (9ème arrondissement), or the primeurs of Vergers St Eustache (94). Inspired by the native Provence of the creator, the menu offers a wide selection of gourmet recipes and flavors, from snacks to desserts, to hot and cold plates to accompany delicious cocktails and natural wines. The star of the card - and social networks - is the lemon in trompe-l'oeil signed Cédric Grolet, pastry chef prodigy to the celebrity assumed on Instagram (@cedricgrolet).

It is thus inspired by the summer atmosphere and the idyllic landscapes of his childhood that Jacquemus transported the South of France in his suitcases to make enjoy the capital.

In the sun, in the rain, at noon or midnight. There is everything you want at the Champs-Elysées.
