Petite Pariscope: More Paris City Tips!


Monthly Tips!

C'est Cafe Cool

La Chambre aux Oiseaux MAP
A gorgeous cafe in the 10th arrondissement of Paris. Visiting the 10th district and the stunning Canal St Martin area is a MUST in Paris.  LA Chambre aux Oiseaux ('The Bird Room') is an utterly quaint, beautiful little cafe with a shabby chic style.

The setting is decorated with retro-deco vintage furniture from the grandmother of the owner, fitting for this electic boho neighbourhood.

Two breakfast menus, City and Country style, decadent savoury brunch on weekends, light lunches and delicious cakes. Panoramic windows perfect for people watching while offering a view of the neighbourhood.

L'Eclair Cafe
A Cocktail Cafe + Brunch & Burger Bar! MAP

 Great breakfasts, famous burgers, even better drinks. This Quintessential Paris Bar has amazing atmosphere, it's criminally comfy you could spend hours there with friends. A custom cocktail list as enticing as its cafe menu 32 rue Cler 75007

 Rose Bakery

A great quick take away bakery. Buy the perfect Quiche – crispy flaky crusts with just the right balance of egg and cream filling, using all organic ingredients,  for 5euro to takeaway, and head to a nearby park or square and enjoy Paris lunch under the sun.  Their sweet tarts are great too – 4euro take away.

Metro: Notre Dame de Lorette

Marche des Enfants Rouge

The  ‘Market of the Red Children’ is the oldest undercover food market in Paris built in 1615 named after a nearby 17thC orphanage. This is a small yet vibrant Parisian market loved by locals. Fresh prepared food you can eat in the cafes inside, bouquets of vibrant flowers, the wide selection of obscure wines, bounties of organic richly colored fruits and vegetables, meat, cheeses. Try the the homemade hamburger stall (local favourite) and Turkish delights. MAP

Picnic Place!
Canal Saint Martin

Enjoy walking up and down quai de Valmy and quai de Jemmapes aka Canal St Martin or sit and enjoy a picnic of baguette, cheese and wine. This is a gorgeous REAL part of Paris. A residential bohemain hood with trendy boutiques and cafés line the banks and on Sundays cars are not allowed alongside the canal and the quay’s invaded by pedestrians, bicycles and rollers, and if you are lucky there’s a flea market or street artists and live music.
