Causses

The graphic, black and white facade of Causses, 55 rue Notre-Dame de Lorette, 75009 drew me into the store without knowing anything about the store. I found a small grocery store dedicated to natural and seasonal food products and a restaurant (called la Fabrique) with healthy soups and sandwiches (that could be eaten onsite or take away).…

Hotel Amour

With warm weather still in the forecast for Paris this week, I would love to head to the Hotel Amour, 9 rue Navarin, 75009 for breakfast or lunch on their patio. Tucked away on rue Navarin in the 9th arrondissement, you could easily walk past the hotel without even noticing it. Step inside and see for…

Pamela Popo

A friend introduced me to brunch at Pamela Popo, 15, rue François Miron, 75004 awhile ago, and I owe her a big merci!

Although the lyrics to the song "Pamela…

Delicious cream puffs à la française can be had at Popelini, 29, rue Debelleyme, 75003 and 44, rue des Martyrs, 75009. Fortunately they are small, so you can justify sampling more than just one of their ten flavors.

Picnicking in Paris

Picnicking in Paris is the best! Although you are not allowed to sit on the grass in some parks, there are still many spots to picnic. Grab a seat on the grass of the Champ-de-Mars, along the edge of the Seine or on one of the pedestrian bridges such as the Pont des Arts. For a…

Frenchie To Go

I mentioned here that I was excited to try Frenchie To Go, 9 rue de Nil, 75002 and I finally made it there. I would recommend their yummy bacon scone if you get a chance to stop by. It is open seven days a week for breakfast and lunch that can be taken to go or eaten…

Roasted Chicken and Potatoes

One of my family's favorite dinners when we are in Paris is roasted chicken and potatoes from a local boucherie (butcher). The roasting starts early in the day, so there is plenty of time for the drippings from the chicken to drench the potatoes that are cooking below. Sounds delicious, right? If you are staying in an…
