Oh, Weather!

We’re getting ready to head out shortly, but the weather has unfortunately not been cooperating (in some ways) this morning. Although the sun is hidden and the temperature is lower (a welcome change from the last two days!), it’s also been thundering and rainy off and on. It’s a gentle kind of thunder and rain though – the kind that would be great to sleep to. Alas, Paris awaits, rain or shine!

After talking more about our plans for today, here’s what we’d like to visit:

*Notre Dame
*Le Marais

On recommendation from the Barefoot Contessa (one of Scott’s favorites!), we’re also planning on having a meal at Cafรฉ Varenne. Although they don’t seem to have a website, all the reviews and recommendations look great. And I’m sure Ina wouldn’t recommend it if it wasn’t amazing, right? ๐Ÿ™‚

One of the things Scott is really excited about for this trip, especially here in Paris, is the food. What food suggestions do you have for us here in Paris? Or anywhere else for that matter!

  1. I’m travelling to Paris mid September as well. I would suggest some moroccan and vietnamese food, as they have a huge population there. I’m not very good to remembering where I ate. But my friend suggested Breizh Cafe for crepes and L’Ebauchoir.

  2. Le Coupe Chou – best meal we had in Paris. They barely spoke English and the diners were locals. Super delicious!

  3. Sugar crepes! Amazing. Don’t remember where I had them in Paris but I am sure they are a popular item ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. We just had a crepe on the walk home today! It wasn’t a sugar crepe, but I was telling Scott that the crepe we did eat needed sugar, so a sugar crepe sounds perfect!

  4. Prison, church, and social life – sounds like a terrific trio of events for the day!

    As for the food, I doubt you and Scott would like any ideas I have to offer ;), so I’ll simply say, “Eat wherever the locals do.” You’re 99% certain to find amazing food there.

    Bon courage, et bon appรฉtit!

    1. We’re always open to suggestions, so feel free to offer any you have! A reader suggested a restaurant earlier today and we just had a great dinner there. ๐Ÿ™‚
