I spent a couple of days in Paris doing a few of my favourite things; exploring, trying different foods and having some amazing cocktails and wines.
One of my first stops was Cafe De L’Avenue which is located close to the Arc de Triomphe. I had a simple but delish Parma Ham and Cantaloupe Salad. The brasserie faces one of the beautiful traditional streets of Paris and feels like perfection on a summers day.
I visited a local bakery in Neuilly-sur-seine each morning picking up ‘A Palm Tree’ more commonly known as a palmier/cœur de France or elephant ear. Made out of all butter, puff pastry, they aren’t the healthiest breakfast option but are a personal MUST when in Paris.
The same goes for the standard Pain au chocolat that is complete with an espresso.
One more thing! For cocktail lovers (like myself) Publicis Drugstore on the Champs-Élysées is definitely worth a visit. I would recommend this particularly if you are looking for something trendy and less touristic yet in a tourist area with great food, nice vibrant atmosphere, shopping and of course drinks all under one roof!
