Homies – That Cozy Spot in Paris


Article by Audrey of Audrey Meets World

Homies restaurant is located in the middle of the Marais on a narrow, low-traffic street near the Saint Paul metro. It’s touted as serving Peruvian plates accompanied by French wines in a Brooklyn-esque atmosphere. Here, everything is homemade and based on the sumptuous, well-developed flavors, and I believe it.

I found this spot by accident while running a few weeks ago. After seeing macaroni and cheese on the menu, I knew I had to return to try this almost-impossible-to-find-in-Paris dish.

And return I did. Last Saturday a friend and I stopped by for lunch. Upon arriving, I was delighted by the deconstructed interior. The plywood bar, chalkboard drink list, exposed pipes, and hanging light bulbs created a casual, industrial-chic and cozy atmosphere. Continue reading Homies – That Cozy Spot in Paris

Le Perchoir Marais – Temporarily The Best Rooftop Terrace in Paris

Le Perchoir Marais - crepescule
You know… I haven’t even been to the original Perchoir. But I don’t care at this point, the Perchoir Marais suits me just fine, and the only time of year I really want to be on a rooftop terrace is in the Summer (or early Fall I suppose). And I love, love, love the Marais location of this terrace, so why do I need to trek all the way over to the 11th when I can head to the heart of Paris!?!

Le Dome du Marais – Apothecary meets Shabby Chic meets Art Deco

Le Dome du Marais sign It would seem that Springtime draws me out and exploring the cafés of Paris. I think the easing of chilly weather makes me feel more adventurous and I am inclined to exit the comfort of home for the chairs, benches and divans at various unexplored cafés around town. Although it isn’t that difficult to entice me outdoors given the many attractive café establishments in the City of lights.


I spent a little time recently in two that I had never discovered before…and all in the same afternoon.

Petit perfume palace

Marie Antoinette Paris, is the name of the tiny little boutique with a cheerful red façade at place Sainte Catherine in the Marais. Chéri and I discovered it a couple of years ago and were completely immersed in the charm not only of the space and décor of the store itself, but also the charm of Antonio de Figueiredo, the shop owner. I have never met anyone who loves perfumes, scents and eaux de toilette so much! His eyes sparkle when he tells you about the famous perfume worn by the lover of Sasha Guitry, or he swoons over the benefits of the mens skin care line that he sells, and he smiles and giggles while expressing his appreciation for the line of Portuguese perfumes and scented candles he has carried since he first opened. Antonio LOVES what he does. Continue reading Petit perfume palace
