6 Most Pinterest Worthy Food Places In Paris

People always say that Paris is a small city but to be honest, coming from Amsterdam, this couldn’t be further away from the truth. Even though I have visited the City of Light many times, there are still a lot of places I’m dying to visit and whenever I’ve ticked off the places on the top of my list, new ones have come to take their place.

That’s one of the things I love most about visiting Paris. It always feels like I have so many things to do and see. So when I hopped on a plane to visit my favorite city again for a girls weekend getaway, I thought it’d be nice to make a list of all the lovely and cozy food places I went to this time.

  1. Fondation Cafe
    This has to be one of my favorites. Tucked away in Le Marais, this place is simple yet elegant with an impeccable design, and offers the most tasty pantries and tea. I noticed Parisians flocking around this little shop while sipping their espresso.
    Address: 16 Rue Dupetit-Thouars
  2. Gigi
    This charming little crêperie is the perfect place if you want to unwind and escape from the crowded Parisian streets for a little while. They serve the best pancakes with fresh fruits and it looks so cozy inside. Another lovely cafe on this street is Cafe Philippe which I can also highly recommend.
    Address: 4 Rue de la Corderie
  3. Ob-La-Di
    We went here on Sunday morning for the most tasty and healthy breakfast to start the day (followed by macarons from Ladurée, French fries and a few glasses of wine..). This lovely place has a minimalistic and Californian look and feel with lots of marble and blue shades (which I am a big fan of). I especially loved the tiles in the floor.
    Address: 54 rue de Saintonge
  4. Café Kitsuné
    Even though we discovered many cute Parisian bistros last weekend, I absolutely loved this one. We stumbled upon this cozy little cafe, nestled in the Galerie de Montpensier, while taking a stroll through the garden of Palais du Royal – my favorite place in Paris. Think minimalistic interior, tasty coffee and picturesque surroundings.
    Address: 51, Galerie Montpensier
  5. Boot Cafe
    I stumbled upon this tiny cafe a while ago on Instagram and I knew I had to visit this place when we finally landed in Paris. This place filled me with an instant and effortless sense of coolness the moment I walked in the door. Oh, how I wish I could spend months and months in this city, if only to be able to explore all these amazing restaurants popping up every single moment.
    Address: 19 Rue du Pont aux Choux
  6. SEASON
    If you are looking for a cosy place to start your day the healthy way, this is the perfect place for you. Nestled in Le Marais – as you can probably tell by now this is my favorite Parisian neighborhood – this Pinterest worthy cafe offers the best breakfast possible.
    Address: 1 Rue Charles-François Dupuis

The Year 2016

    

There is still one sleep left until the new year. How did this happen already? This year has passed by even quicker than I even could have imagined. I started this year in freezing cold Amsterdam together with my loved ones. This year has been one of the most challenging and at the same time most exciting years so far. Therefore I love looking back at a few moments that were extra special to me during this time. I hope you all had a blissful year and let’s spread even more love, laughter and kindness in 2017 as I think we all need it a little bit more these days. Wishing you all happy holidays, lots of love and light wherever you are in the world.

The first few months of 2016 were filled with ice skating on Amsterdam’s Museumplein with the most exquisite view of the Rijksmuseum and some tasty food in one of the charming wooden chalets. I went to the ballet to finally see the romantic Swan Lake and it was the most inspiring evening. Those of you who have been following along for quite some time know that I love, love, love ballet and so a few times a year I go to the Stopera here in Amsterdam to see some of the most inspiring ballet dansers perform. I also went to the Ragazze Kwartet Haute Couture performance at the Concertgebouw which I can highly recommend.

Corner Bakery

I also enjoyed lunches, brunches and breakfasts at Ree7, Buffet van Odette, Corner Bakery, George No5, Scandinavian Embassy and Pluk.

Just before spring arrived here in Amsterdam I hopped on a plane to Bali, a place that has been on my travel list for ages. One of the highlights of my little trip was staying at Sal Secret Spot, having lunch at Sisterfields and getting a spa treatment at Spring Spa. 2016 was definitely a year full of holidays as I also visited Rome together with my mum and little sister to enjoy some quality time together. It can very likely have been one of the very best weekend trips ever as I absolutely love the city of Rome. You ask where my love for Rome comes from? Start looking at my mum. She loves anything Italian and I think she managed to transfer her love for Italy onto me..

Sal Secret Spot

To top it all off, I visited Barcelona with a few friends for a well-deserved girls weekend and I went to the little island of Ibiza in the beginning of September together with one of my closest friends. It was a week full of discovering hidden gems and beaches, strolling aimlessly along the harbor and burying our faces in an obscene amount of delicious Spanish food.

Amante Beach Club

In between holidays, a hectic career and catching up with friends and family, I passed my wine exam and switched jobs (I moved from wine to cosmetics which as you might know I am a big fan of) so it’s been an intense year to say the least. That’s why I love looking back at this year, remembering the highlights but definitely the lows as well. Remembering things and events made me laugh and cry at the same time. Even though 2016 has been challenging on so many different levels, I am still thankful for every single thing it has taught me and I can only hope that 2017 will be even better. But for now, let me say: HAPPY NEW YEAR!
