Bonjour mes chéri(e)s!
I know, you guys haven’t heard of me for a while…
But now I’m back!
I was sooooo busy trying to find new inspiring ideas for my blog and then we went to Paris with our class.
Yes, that’s exactly what I was thinking! Why not write a blog about the bakeries in Paris! And so I have a special for you guys 🙂
First things first. I always LOVED the bakeries in France. The bread and everything is so much better than it is here. Or is it just a feeling because we’re on holiday then?
Anyway, I just knew I had to do something about these bakeries. I hope you guys like it and maybe you’ll also want to go to Paris and its bakeries ^^
Welcome to Paris!
In Belgium, we have a chip shop on every corner (so to speek). France, and of course also Paris, has the same but with bakeries.
You can’t imagine how happy I was during the three days I’ve spent there.
You have all sorts of bakeries. Old, cute, modern, big, small, famous, …
There are two specific bakeries I’d like to talk about.
The first one is ‘Le petit musée du chocolat’. It’s not really a bakery nor a museum. But it’s called like that.
I have to be honest, I’d never heard of it before. I saw it on our way to Montmartre. There was a street with lots of souvenir shops and then I saw this store. It was quite big, comparing to the size of the other stores.
The name said enough for me to enter the store 😉
It’s not all chocolate here. They have cookies, merengues, caramel, …
I’ll show you
I have to admit, if they would ever ask me to come and work there, right away! 😀 But it wouldn’t be good for my figure, I guess…
I was like a child in a candy store. Cookies, macarons, chcolate everywhere. And it’s such a beautiful house too. The wood and the colours…
So, when you visite Montmartre and the Sacré Coeur you must definately stop by this wonderfull store.
By the way, I didn’t buy anything there 😮 I know! My backpack was already filled with stuff and it was so hot that I thought it would probably all melt 😦
But when I’m going to Paris again, I’ll absolutely buy something there. And if I win the lottery, I’ll buy the whole store.
There is one bakey, or better pastry shop, where I did buy something: Ladurée.
We have one in Antwerp but it’s not the same. The Ladurée in Paris (Champs-Elysées) is way bigger and has a tea room too!
Again, I felt like a child in a candy store…
There was a line but I really really REALLY wanted some macarons from here. And my backpack was empty so that wasn’t a problem 😉
I bought a ‘chausson aux pommes’ and four macarons. I know, I was so hungry I didn’t have time to take a picture of it before eating it. (sorry!)
On the picture below you can see two chocolate ones and one vanilla macaron. I have to say, the vanilla one was super delicious! The others were too but still…
Now that I went to Ladurée in Paris, the one in Antwerp will probably dissapoint but I still think I have to try it as well. 😉
I really enjoyed my trip to Paris and I hope you guys will go there too one day. It’s the city of love (and of the macarons).
I wish I could have stayed there longer and I already want to go back 😦
Maybe, if I start saving some money, I’ll go next year 🙂
Have a delicious night or day!
p.s. I loooove the bakeries in Paris! Have I meantioned that already?
