Place Saint Sulpice

 

I promised to try new restaurants and patisseries during this visit to Paris. While walking, I came across a tiny cafe that serves excellent espresso – Terres de Cafe.

One restaurant I really enjoyed both the meal and the vibe is Cafe Trama in the Saint Placide area. Traditional french cuisine in a casual but modern style, with a good wine selection.

A couple of blocks away from the hotel I stayed at is  Patisserie Thevenin, where I would pick up my morning croissant.

For a fancier patisserie experience, head to Angelina. They have a few locations in the city, and I visited the one by Parc Luxembourg. Their trademark pastry since 1903 is the Mont Blanc, made of meringue, light whipped cream and chestnut paste vermicelli.

Just off Place Saint Sulpice, I came across Pierre Geronimi. Although I stopped only for my afternoon cafe, after eyeing the cool space, only to find out they are known for their artisanal ice cream.

Although I promised to try new places, I did return to one of my favourites, Christian Constant’s Les Cocottes.

All my visits to this city, I tend to gravitate to stay in the 6th arrondissement – likely due to familiarity of the area. This time I stayed at Le Placide Saint-Germain des Pres. Located a stone’s throw away from Le Bon Marche and walking distance to two metro stations, The hotel has a total of only 11 rooms and the rooms are quite generously sized for Paris.
