Treize bakery, or Thirteen, a Baker's Dozen opened in January of 2014 on a dare and a prayer, with the hope of bring a bit of down home goodness and old fashioned joy to the chic Saint Germain des Près area of the left bank of Paris.
Our food is simple. The service is honest. It isn't the fastest lunch in town, but it will fill you up...body and soul. We work will local suppliers who provide organic, free range, and biodynamic raw ingredients, and who are, as a whole, good people. Everything is made from scratch in the kitchen, which you have a birds eye view into from your table. We believe firmly in bringing the humanity and exchange back to the way we eat. We offer a slew of vegetarian dishes, several gluten free options and can even turn some of the plates vegan for you if you are so inclined. That being said, we are best known for our (not fried) Fried Chicken and French Toast Biscuits (which, yes, is neither vegetarian, gluten free or vegan...), and we make a pretty mean bloody mary;
Tucked deep in a courtyard off the busy Rue des Saints Pères, Treize appeals to the curious wanderer and now, to the dogged directions follower google mapping their way to us thanks to a blogpost or restaurant review...The dining room is tiny, but we serve food from around 10am until 4pm... just in case you don't want to eat at 1pm ( most people want to eat at 1pm...) We also will happily make you a take away lunchbox if you want to eat at your desk. Actually no one really ever wants to eat at their desk... but if you NEED to, we understand. You can also eat your lunchbox in a park. Or on a bridge. Bridges are nice.
