It's the start of the end of September 2022 fashion month, with Paris in full swing. Highsnobiety editors from across different teams and regions gathered our favorite spots to visit in the French capital for those of you who need a brief break from runways and showroom appointments. Who knew that when it comes to Paris, we are more into shopping for vintage than anything else? But who are we kidding, this list is mostly food. Don't forget to bookmark our New York, London, and Milan lists as well, for future reference.

Merci

I don’t know whether it's a quirky phase or I’m just getting old, but homeware (crockery, in particular) is fast becoming an obsession of mine. Feeding this newfound addiction on each of my visits to the French capital is Merci Paris, the cafe-cum-clothing-and-homewear store hybrid. Whether you’re on the hunt for a new cast iron casserole dish, a three-seater sofa, or simply a cup of coffee, you’ll find it hard to leave empty handed. - Tayler Willson, Style Writer

Paperboy

As a self-confessed sandwich and coffee obsessive, my go-to Parisian hotspot is always going to be Paperboy. Think of your favorite sarnie and times it by a hundred and you might just get a whiff of what a Paperboy sandwich is like. Renowned for its tasty grub, great coffee, and generally being a hub of creatives, Paperboy’s pleasing Scandinavian-inspired interior is also home to a plethora of its own sought-after clothing and collaborations. What’s not to like? Bon appetit! - Tayler Willson, Style Writer

Palais de Tokyo

As the largest contemporary art gallery in Europe, the Palais De Tokyo hosts the most cutting-edge artists, but it’s worth a visit for the building alone. Just a short walk from the Trocadéro, the outside of the building has become an iconic skate spot, while its terrace and interior is regularly home to fashion shows with Rick Owens, Chanel, and Celine taking over the space. - Lia McGarrigle, Style Editor

FREE'P'STAR

If you’re willing to dig, FREE'P'STAR is one of the best vintage stores in Paris — and the cheapest— with prices starting from €1. The selection is less about brand names and more about unique pieces: Think vintage workwear, leather jackets, and standout pieces from the ‘50s onwards. - Lia McGarrigle, Style Editor

Seven Boys and Girls

Seven Boys and Girls has been one of my must-visits every single time I’m in Paris, because I always end up finding a vintage gem there such as John Galliano Dior or snakeskin cowboy boots. If you’re looking for vintage pieces it is the place to go, as well as all of the other stores around the area, including Gaijin. - Tora Northman, Senior TikTok Manager

Creperie Gigi

Creperie Gigi is the perfect spot for a lunch or snack after you’ve been to The Broken Arm, OFR, and all the vintage spots in the Marais. It’s truly both delicious and perfectly located. - Tora Northman, Senior TikTok Manager

L'As du Fallafel

Yes, L’as du Fallafel lives up to all the hype. The famous Middle Eastern eatery serves up the best falafel sandwich I’ve ever had the pleasure of feasting on. Five years later after my first taste of LDF, I still remember those perfectly crisp chickpea rounds, topped with the works: hummus, cucumber, picked cabbage, and eggplant. Don’t skip the fries! - Alex Pauly, Style Writer

Candelaria

Speakeasies can be a bit gimmicky, but this one isn't. Go through the door at the back of the tiny taco shop and you're into one of Paris' best (and darkest) cocktail bars. And don't worry, you can still get the nachos served in the bar. - Alek Rose, Branded Shopping Editor

Les Arlots

Set in the streets of Pigalle, Les Arlots has all the wine and comfort food you could possibly need on a cold night in Paris. It's famous for its sausage and mashed potato, weirdly, but it really is the best sausage & mash I've ever had. - Alek Rose, Branded Shopping Editor

Le Bouillon Chartier

When in Paris, you have to hit a big, noisy brasserie. Le Bouillon Chartier is my go-to. It's cheap, good food, served quickly in a truly manic environment. The queue gets pretty long, so get in there early and settle in with a bottle or two of the house rouge. - Alek Rose, Branded Shopping Editor
