    Du Pain at des Idées and a last stroll in Paris...

    This bakery was a nice discovery for us during this trip. We loved all it had to offer from our first visit so fella requested that we had to have some for our last morning before we took off once more - I didn't complain! It was a nice easy walk and a great start to what was about to be a busy day. Safe to say, we had very good viennoiseries this trip (an important task in all of our trips to paris😅) and we will definitely keep coming here if we should ever be back in this lovely city!

    Oh and by the way, the 10th district is the place to stay!!! Loved everything about the area we stayed in...hardly any tourists yet close to the major sight (or at least transportation), and the selection of where locals eat, drink and shop around our flat was in abundance! It really felt like we were living like Parisians...#LifeGoal 😘

    52 Foubourg St Denis

    What a nice way to end our trip here with a dinner at this spot! This was a lovely yet cool place just below our flat. We were just planning on drinking some hot chocolate and figure out another dinner spot but out of laziness, we stuck around. Glad we did because it was a very delicious meal enjoyed by the two of us! The place had a warm minimalist design (exposed walls, neutral furnishings and great wood tones all throughout) - it almost reminded me of something in Vancouver - which means we're doing something right in our city - just not with Vancouver pricing 😅 and the 2-hour seating limit.Read more

    S: Strollin' the Montmartre

    March 18, 2018 in France ⋅ ⛅ 0 °C

    Always wanted to go back here after our first trip in 2012. Due to time restraints, we were only able to see the church and little of its surroundings. Third time's the charm as we finally went and explored more of the streets of its neighbourhood all while it snowed. Once again, we were probably the only ones happy to have seen it with the specks of magic 😍.Read more

    S: Paris Street Art

    March 18, 2018 in France ⋅ 🌫 0 °C

    I love street art! If I wasn't hungry all the time I'd likely be spending a good chunk of my time walking around the city and snapping and learning about the different pieces I see.

    Paris had some great ones during our strolls and I always wish we had more time devoted to just finding even more of them...Read more

    Traiteur Morocain dans Marché des Enfants Rouges:

    This was simply delicious and filling! We first went around the market to scope out the selection but this place had the longest line so it didn't take long to be convinced - plus it smelled good and the offerings were varied. We appreciated that it had lots of (albeit cozy) covered and warm seating available to enjoy the meal. Once we were given the spot inside the "tent" all we had to do was eat confortably and happily! It was a quick meal but a good one at that!Read more

    C: Hoppy Corner

    March 17, 2018 in France ⋅ 🌧 1 °C

    When at PBC yesterday, it was recommended we go here. Hoppy Corner was surprising close to where we first stayed in Paris, 6 years ago. SEE and I shared 2 flights.

    Flight 1
    Monstruous Fat Pig Stout (Mexican cake edition)
    865 CC
    Bigorre
    Nice To Meet Yiu
    A L'Ouest

    Flight 2
    Agent Provocateur
    Sourdough
    Mind The Gap
    Common Grounds
    Neudorf

    (Description in pics)

    Unlike yesterday, SEE took part in drinking. Which turned into drawing Owl Art and some general silliness.

    Hops in Paris are completely different (as expected). They seem to be naturally sweeter and much less bitter, while producing beer that is just as fragrant and tasty.

    Hoppy Corner

    From yesterday's discovery (Paname Brewing Co.) We were recommended to check out this spot as we were somewhat close to it. Glad we took the advice as we had such a fun time together...though I think I enjoyed more as I indulged creatively😅😘! Highly recommended spot for craft beer connoisseurs...it's all about quality and flavour! I officially like IPA ...in France!

    Grateful for the fella who made sure my inebriated self did not fall flat on my face as we walked through the streets of paris especially on a wet and slippery day😅.

    PS. Just as I found pbc yesterday...I want full credit for this place too 😘!

    5 pailles: Just happened to stumble upon this coffee corner in our neighborhood and so glad we found it for a very late brunch (if that's even a thing😅). great vibe, design and the food was fresh too!

    Bouillon de Chartier: recommended by our host as we explored the passages. 19th c. design brasserie which initially confused the hell out of us. It had a very long line up (40 minute wait) and served vin chair for your waiting pleasure 😒 but the food and overall experience made it worth it. It was both with tourist but also frenchies so it legitimized it😘! The food was actually very good but it was very un-fancy-french...Chris described it as cafeteria-like...but again, very good food! I will actually recommend it to people who've been here several times and aren't too hell-bent about Michelin starred restaurants...but just simply experiencing good old Parisian food!Read more
