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.
- 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
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
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
- 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
- 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
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
