I don’t think you can go wrong with picking a patisserie for afternoon tea in Paris. After a long day wandering through the bustling streets, we stopped at a patisserie called Paris Baguette on a side street in the 4th arrondissement and of course we weren’t disappointed! I had a lemon tart (tarte citron) and Julian had a chocolate éclair and a caramel macaron that had real caramel in the centre. We sat outside at our table like the Parisians do – side by side, facing out towards the street. A great way to people watch!
I love the way they have their logo on little chocolate squares on all their treats. French pastries are so exquisitely presented and they taste just as good as they look. Nearly worth a trip back just to experience these again! What other places have you been to for pastries in Paris? We also lined up for the famous Laduree Macarons, but didn’t quite make it into Angelina’s for hot chocolates. That just means we will have to come back one day 😉
Cute cotton-stiched tea bags.
