Yes, bacon-glazed brownies do exist in this world, and you may have them with a cup of glorious latte at Holybelly here in Paris. Nico Avery and Sarah Mouchot, a very sweet French couple, have spent some time working in the food and coffee scene in Melbourne, and are bringing back that simple deliciousness to Paris. I have actually been to Nico’s old workplace Market Lane when I visited Melbourne two Springs ago, and can attest that it’s a very charming place. Holybelly opened just two months ago, and the difficult but rewarding process has been chronicled on their blog - a fun read for those who are interested in dipping their toes in the F&B business, myself included.
That’s Nico, behind the bar.
That’s Sarah in the kitchen, accompanied by Lise, who is actually a classmate from Ferrandi.

It only just opened half a year ago in May 2012, but Télescope has already been applauded as one of the best places to get coffee in Paris. Its front window emanates the kind of cozy warm lighting that draws passerby right in, but the tiny shop accommodates no more than 10 people at full capacity. Come try your luck, or get a cup to go.
