A little while back – actually, that’s a lie, a long time back, as in a year ago – Leo and I were in Paris having a blast. Coutume café was conveniently located between our hotel and the Musée D’Orsay. We happily made two trips to the café during our short time. If you are visiting the neighbourhood (7th arrondissement), I do recommend you pop by for your caffeine fix. Trust me, it will be better than the corner café and bitter sludge they serve in brasseries. And bonus, they do café à emporter (coffee to go)!
Le Coutume Café
47 Rue de Babylone | Paris
One of the most enjoyable meals you’ll have in Paris will be the €18 prix fixe lunch at Le Baratin in Belleville. Even if you’re not on a budget, there’s enough charm and good food to make it a worthwhile visit. Leo and I were so full by the end that we barely managed to finish the small portion of tiramisu we were sharing. That’s how well cared for you’ll feel when you eat there.

The week before helping me move into my dorm in London, my mom and I went on a little trip to Paris. It was amazing, tiring, we saw so much that the days just blurred in and out of each other. There are so many things to be said about the city. Let’s start with the food.
A Japanese pâtisserie near Luxembourg Garden
Sweets in Paris are incredible! There are pâtisseries, boulangeries, and chocolateries on every street. But, if you had to choose one, I highly recommend Sadaharu Aoki. The genmaicha éclair was exceptional…
The matcha croissant was also pretty good.
At Châteaux de Versailles
If you find yourself hungry while visiting Châteux de Versaille, stick to desserts at Angelina. This bourbon and vanilla millefeuille saved our day. The ham sandwich that we had? Barely passable.
