Mariage Frères Tea Room on Rue Clerc

It was on a sizzling hot summer day that my friend Lindsey and I stumbled upon an absolute haven of air conditioning and afternoon treats.

There is a luxury version of almost everything. You have your typical boulangerie pastries sold for a euro or two and handed to you in a paper bag, and then you have star chef’s incredible creations served in fancy dining rooms on china.

But an article about tea time at Le Meurice will no doubt spark a conversation about the… Read more →

Two Spots for Tea

I love tea. I drink a whole pot of it in the morning. Some of you got an insight into breakfast chez Chéri & moi this past winter. I find that it wakes me up gently, quenches my thirst and offers me a delightful indulgence for the papilles (taste buds in French…it sounds better). I do like to indulge in… Read more →
