The Marais... Experience...

"La vie... quotidienne"...

Continued...

Today...

The Marais experience... started with the usual espresso and croissant at... Café Charlot...

It is a beautifully situated brasserie... wrapped around the corner... "juste à côté du Marché des Enfants Rouges"... on rue de Bretagne...

It is lovely in the early morning... especially today since at last... the Parisian sun appeared... "en force"...

Ladurée... at the Champs-Élysées...

Ladurée... "Enfin"...

One of our best-loved... "Salon du Thé"...

On the... Champs-Élysées...

Has re-opened... its elegant portals to its...

Adoring... "clientèle"...

"Et... Voila"...

An oasis... of complete luxury...

Le Cour du Commerce Saint-André... "Ambiance Historique"...

"Le Cour du Commerce Saint-André"...

Is one of the oldest passageways... in Paris...

After a moment's... hesitation...

We entered into the... "passage"...

Suddenly we were transported... into the magical world of "le vieux Paris".

Bread & Roses... Their Perfect... P'tit Déj'...

Bread & Roses...

"Chaque quartier...

de Paris...

est magique"...

"Le Loir dans la Théière"

It is "vraiment" the most authentic and charming Salon de Thé, the "Le Loir dans la Théière".

Carette - A Parisian Institution

What would a morning be like in Paris without a café and a croissant...

Well, THIS morning, we decided to go to the refurbished "Carette" Pâtisserie and Salon de Thé at the Trocadéro, which has been a veritable institution in Paris since the Carette family first opened its doors in 1927.

A visit to the Marais

Rue des Francs Bourgeois

Had a lovely stroll in the historic "Marais" district of Paris (4th Arrondissement) yesterday, with it's charming streets and boutiques.
