5 years in Paris

This post is a very personal one and none food related. Last week marked my fifth year in Paris. Five years since I waved good bye to my family as I got into a packed VW car filled with bags and ‘stuff’ that used to have their own place in my own one bedroom ground floor…

Boneshaker Doughnuts

“mmmmmmm doughnuts” is what me and Hommer Simpson have in common ! Not only do we love to eat them but would be regulars at this magical sweet roll shop. In fact I sort of am a regular at Boneshaker. So much so we became friends, even brought my eldest son to trickle treat and…

O Coffeeshop

What used to be a two man team on a small wooden table with wheels serving excellent coffee and pastry as a POP-up coffee shop across paris, has now established itself firmly in the 15th arrondissement. A beautiful inviting warm café that opened earlier this year (2017) is bringing hot tasty coffee and delicious home…

Eggs & Co

Bachir Ice cream

Republique of Coffee

I discovered this beautiful café by chance on a cold afternoon. I was heading home after my French conversation class and decided to walk to République and catch the metro from there. As I was walking I noticed a rather attractive modern café with a bicycle in front of it…. NOTE: this is a clear…

Aloha Café

Step into the tropical paradise. Step into a warm welcoming sanctuary. Step into a secret hide out in Paris. Step into wholesome homemade food. Sep into frothy coffee served in pastel coloured ceramic cups. Step into Aloha Café. This has got to be one of my all time best cafes in Paris. I truly love…
