Spring in Paris

8 mars 2015 § 1 commentaire

The weather in Paris was so good this week that we met with friends at The Broken Arm’s terrass to enjoy the ray of sunlight. I was also impatient to discover the first J.Crew store which has opened in Paris on rue Malher. The selection of clothes was better than what I saw in New York. Jenna Lyons has perfectly caught Parisian style, through Saint James marinière, silk camisole top and a selection of sneakers that I am certain Parisian would fall in love with!

Even if I prefer Madewell’s clothes (J.Crew’s little sister), don’t miss it if you are in le Marais. jcrew paris opening ceremony bottle violette jenna lyons jaicrew paris le marais shop new yorkjcrew paris inauguration le marais shop new york jenna lyons Address: J.Crew – 12 rue Malher, Paris 75003 and The Broken Arm – 12 rue Perrée, Paris 75003

Le Marais: The Broken Arm – Paris

  Paris coffee scene has become more and more interesting, as coffee starts to be as important as wine or cheese. French people drink espresso, and in most of bistrots and cafés, if you want the « american » version, you have to precise « café allongé, s’il vous plaît » – an espresso with added water. I am always amused when I observe foreigner’s reaction when they order a coffee and they see it arriving in a tiny cup. Although the taste of espresso is very strong, the concentration of caffeine is less important than in an americano because the brewing time is longer for the americano.  the broken arm concept store cafe espresso paris french breakfast travel france

  In Le Marais, I often go to a place called The Broken Arm. It is inside a concept store, and it was opened by a group of friends who were helding a blog called « Des Jeunes Gens Modernes » (blog now closed, link not found). They are famous for the Blueberry cheesecake (made by Rachel’s, not to be missed!), and the nice atmosphere. I really wish this café would be also opened on Sunday. cheesecake blueberry myrtille rachels paris le marais the broken arm best paris french france travel breakfast brunch Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset

  You can have lunch here as well as just a pastry with your coffee. It is not far from the Jacques Génin chocolaterie. Vous pouvez également déjeuner, ou bien prendre simplement une pâtisserie avec votre café. Le café est situé non loin de la chocolaterie de Jacques Génin.
