Paris - Part Deux


Where We Stayed:

This time we stayed in Lower Le Marais - it was a fantastic location with tons of cafes, shops and a few blocks away from the river. Our neighborhood was full of life and very walkable. I only took the metro to the Eiffel Tower this time because we were so conveniently located. We used Airbnb and had the cutest tiny flat that was totally renovated with AC and an Eiffel Tower view. We just went in April, and I talked all about that here.

Where I Ate:

On top of all the standard croissants, baguettes and cheese, my favorite thing to do in Paris is eat! That goes for anywhere I travel though, so no surprise. Here is a rundown of where I ate and what I had.

Breakfast:

La Drogurie Du Marais- fresh made crepes with butter, sugar and cinnamon

Drahonnet- croissants, pain au chocolate and cappuccino (daily!)

Au Pan Qioten - ham and cheese croissant and tea

Les Philosophies - petite dejeuner

Angelina - eggs benedict, hot chocolate and pastries

Lunch/Dinner:

Candalaria- tacos, frijoles negros, salsa

L'Tresor - onion soup

Le Lutetia - chicken and frites

Chez Julien - tomato burrata salad

Caffe Vito - tagliatelle

Allo Sushi - dragon roll, miso soup

L'Equinox - escargot, scallop risotto, tiramisu

Tuk Tuk Thai- chicken pad thai

Cafe Le Louis Philippe - steak and potatoes (steak not so good)

L'As du Fallafel - fallafel (which I don't like but did there!) and shawarma

Where I shopped:

Zara

Caudalie - favorite skincare line and it has a spa

Mango

Vintage Shops

Cote e Cote

What I did:

Shop along the Rue de Rivoli

38Riv Jazz Club - I LOVED this and they have different acts nightly

Shakespeare & Co - so cute and so so many books with a cute cafe next door

Notre Dame - I accidentally did the stairs to the top but had the best view

Louvre picnic

Seine River Cruise - do this at sunset; it's perfection

Eiffel Tower Trocadero - if you go early, it's a good picture spot/at night to watch it sparkle

Gelato - eat it anywhere and everywhere

Picasso Museum

La Cusine Pastry class - I did one on my previous trip and loved it so much I did it again! This time, I learned how to make croissants, pain au chocolate, pastry creme and pain au raisins

Au Revoir, Paris! Until we meet again. XO
