Sloe, a new concept store in the North Marais, has fast become the go-to hot spot for health-conscious Parisians. It brings together a gym, where you can practice yoga, Pilates and cross training, a shop – we loved the organic skincare – and café.

It’s conveniently located close to Gare du Nord, and so a great pit stop when stepping off the Eurostar or before a train journey.

The space

This interior is light with white walls and large windows.

The vibe is relaxed and the yoga studio in the basement adds to the chilled and informal atmosphere.

On one side is a bar where the food and baked goods are freshly made and the wall is decorated with delicate black and white animal sketches. On the other side, it’s bare brick, with naked bulbs and open shelving. There are four small outside tables.

The little things that make the difference

We loved the beautiful marble tables dotted with tiny flowers and metal chairs with cool patterned cushions.

The fresh juice test

We went for a green juice and a green smoothie, which came with each of our set menus. The green juice was a mix of pineapple, cucumber, fennel and ginger. I’ve never had a juice with that flavour combination before and it was a hit! The fennel with the ginger made the juice so fresh, but the pineapple kept it sweet.

The smoothie was exceptionally green and contained elderberries which added a very special taste.

It also contained melon, lemon and mint and we preferred it to the juice.

What we ate

In typical French fashion, we had two set menus – the petit dejeuner (breakfast) which was an açai bowl with the juice and the set lunch menu – a spring veggie bowl with the smoothie and dessert.

The açai was a perfect blend, without too much banana and super-chilled.

The toppings were generous – mega-crunchy cinnamon granola made with almonds and hazelnuts, plus coconut chips, fresh blueberries and raspberries. A big dollop of creamy peanut butter was the perfect finishing touch.

The spring veggie bowl was packed with red cabbage, stir-fried broccoli in tamarind, grated carrots with pumpkin seeds, grilled zucchini, beetroot hummus, bean sprouts and egg.

Finally, for dessert we chose the pecan muffin, which had an amazing airy structure and was creamy in consistency. I think it had some pieces of banana in it adding a special twist


What we’d go back for…

The green smoothie, the taste was so pure and it was such an interesting combination. Plus I felt really clean and glowing when I left!
