Hi Carin,

I love your blog. So many to choose from, if you could only choose one whih one would it be for that ultimate Paris experience…..I need help!

Thanks for this amazing list! my favourite spot for tea and people watching has been the Plaza for years, and wonderfully, its now open again, but I am looking for a few other options to enjoy with a dear friend tomorrow and this is a truly fabulous resource! Thank you! xo

Nothing better in the world than going out for tea and treats with my sweet…

I don’t think the popularity of Paris will ever cease. I think to most people the idea of traveling is just fanciful. People are usually so saddled with stuff that they don’t think they have time to have fun, to live! They forget they have to live in the spur of the moment because otherwise is not really living.

iam glad to find Colorava in your list. i love this place.
I would also recommend Les Pipelettes, rue Brézin, 14th. Homebake pastries, fresh juice, Betjam & Barton tea
it is also an épicerie fine

I’m happy you like Colorova too! Thank you so much for the suggestion. I hope I can make it there in the future!

I loooove the ring! tres chic!!!

Only had time for Angelina’s last visit.. hope to make it to Rose Bakery next time. There never seems to be enough time in Paris.

I would also like to recommend a cozy, homey tea house in the 13th arrondissement, in the Buttes aux Cailles area, L’OisiveThé. It’s owned by an American who also bakes delicious cakes, cookies and muffins fresh everyday. She also sells yarn there and hosts knitting evenings and workshops. It’s a lovely, cozy place to curl up with a pot of tea or to come in for weekend brunch.

Beautiful pictures of lovely teas and luscious things to eat. But one is having Afternoon tea, and NOT High Tea, as High Tea is supper served at a later hour and with different things to eat. Please get this cultural custom correct.

Hi! Thank you so much for the correction. We’ll certainly take that into consideration for the future as well.

Sounds fabulous! Just sent the information to my partner and friends who just arrived in Paris today. I hope they go!

That’s so kind of you Leslie! Thank you 🙂

These photos are making me drool. I’m dying to try café Pouchkine, I’ve never been…!!!

You have to pay a visit to Café Pouchkine if you haven’t been yet, it’s very yummy!

I love sweets and warm beverages, so this post is perfect for me! Now I just need a flight ticket and time to go to Paris! 😉

Drooling…and heading to my kitchen to steep some Ladurée Earl Grey! Hopefully I will be able to get back to Paris with a chill still in the air…

Oh god. If only I’m in Paris right now!

What a wonderful post I always need a little more motivation to leave the apartment in the winter months! Can’t wait to try some these recommendations
