Spring lunch in Paris


Friends ask me all the time about the food in Paris. You may know by now that I love my favorite boulangeries and patisseries that I have found on my walks. This happens to be my favorite go to lunch in Paris which is salmon tartare. I lunched with my friend Gail of Perfectly Paris and I haven’t stopped thinking of this perfect Spring lunch.

One of my favorite views of the Marais I stopped by my friends apartment later in the evening. I could stare out the window all night. The light hit the buildings perfectly.

A typical Sunday in Paris


Since I have been home people have been asking me what did I do all day? Well the answer is, I walked and ate A LOT! But here is an example of a typical Sunday morning/afternoon. If you are in Paris I highly recommend these spots and I hope you get to enjoy my favorite day.

Living in Montmartre I really enjoyed my 3 mile walk down to the Bastille. It is this way that I found my favorite Boulangerie with the best baguette on Rue Beaumarchais


I recommend the Torsadee Baguette. If you are lucky and arrive at the right time it will be hot out of the oven. 28 rue Beaumarchais – Metro – Chermin Vert



The Bastille Market is next and only a few blocks away from the Boulangerie. If you skip it you can take the Bastille metro and be right there. Its open 7ish – 2ish on Thursdays and Sundays. I visit all my favorite fruit/vegetable vendors and pick up fresh flowers.



Next stop is my favorite spot maybe in all of Paris. If I had my choice I would have an apartment in Place des Vosges. I love this spot early in the morning. You can hear the birds chirping and the fountains flowing. The park is beautiful.


Last stop is Le Petite fer Au Cheval for a cafe creme and maybe a croissant from the boulangerie. A seat at the bar is hard to come by on a Sunday but if you are lucky and early enough you can snag one. You can also sit outside and people watch.Rain or shine this is my Sunday in Paris!
