Sometimes the simplest things are the hardest ones to get right, and that certainly proves true when it comes to a croque monsieur. The toasted cheese, ham and bechamel sandwich is rightfully famous yet increasingly difficult to find done well. That’s where La Fontaine de Belleville comes in. This cafe from the team behind local coffee roastery Belleville Brûlerie is picturesque, and its buttery croque monsieur, served with a green side salad, is the fluffy, gooey standard-bearer for the French classic.
