Healthy, organic food at this brand new cafe in trendy South Pigalle: 
Created by sisters Margot and Scarlette, Marlette began as an organic food brand selling bread and cake mixes (stocked at choice Paris addresses such as Claus and Causses), and has now branched out to include the freshly opened Café Marlette, serving breakfast, lunch, brunch and snacks.

One of the best veggie burgers I've ever had - and an amazing selection of "normal" burgers, too!
