A Taste of Paris

I'm back and fresh off a food and culture-filled, whirlwind week in France.   I've got a number of Francophile posts to share this week, but I thought I'd start off with a few of my favorite sights, smells and scenes from the city of light.
an adorable flower shop in my favorite neighborhood, the Marais (4th arrondissement)

Merce & the Muse: a hip coffee shop in the Marais founded by an ex-pat that made me feel right at home - thanks to the tres Parisian chic Tiffany Iung for introducing me!  

because what would France be without a crumbly, fresh baguette and...

...a bit of unbelievably rich cheese?

Au Petit Fer A Cheval - quite possibly the epitome of a picturesque Parisian cafe.  And as luck would have it, it was right around the corner from me.  The best cafe creme (cappuccino) and simple bistro fare you'll stumble on

the bright blur of an entire wall full of Kumsi tea, a French staple

an outside peek at Spring Boutique, the wine and fine foods shop of Spring restaurant...so fantastic it deserves it's own post (later this week!)

gorgeous dark purple anemones - rich and regal flowers for a city rich with culture and history

a peaceful Parisian street, and the perfect end to a post!
