We started off our morning on the hunt for a cafe with charm and a good coffee to match. As we were walking everywhere we decided to check out our local area of le Marais and came across Le Peloton which is between Rue de Rivoli and the Seine on a cute and quiet street. I loved this place, it was almost like it was set up for people to interact with each other rather then sit alone quietly in the corner. The cafe is focused towards the baristas who make some exceptional coffees with some friendly chat.
Fuelled with coffee we were ready to go and see the Eiffel tower & it did not dissapoint!
More walking around the city, resulted in me spotting some fantastic graffiti around the city. Paris has some great street art and its really not hard to find. I loved these particular ones because its like graffiti mixed with glitter and whats not to love about a sprinkle of glitter here and there!?
Before we finished the trip we had to visit the Arc de Triomphe and walk down the Champs Elysees, I was a girl on a mission to get me to Laduree before the trip was through. If you decide to go to Laduree (which i totally think you should, there is nowhere better for macaroons!) then the best thing to do is bypass the queue just buying macaroons and leaving the shop and head to the back of the building to the, surprisingly, not busy bar/cafe. My sister made this revelation, I must admit I was a queuer until she highlighted my stupidity. The bar area serves drinks hot or cold, alcoholic or not and a selection of sweet treats. I went for the best earl grey i have ever had and some mini macaroons for right then and there, with a box to go as well!
As the night drew on we decided to walk around the city and see what it had to offer after dark
We finished off our trip stopping at Breizh cafe as we had been told so many good things about it and I hadn't actually had a crepe before. I know, shocker. Their concept is 'crepe autrement' which translated means crepe differently. So they do some amazing delicious varieties of crepes. The place is constantly buzzing, but we were determined to get in. You need to book or you can expect to join a queue (which isn't actually that slow so not the end of the world!) Perfect on a rainy afternoon where you can enjoy the wood panelled cosy interiors.
That ends the trip, I hope you enjoyed this and if you head to Paris these are just a few of the things we did, that may be of help when you're planning your trip!
