Paris Morning

After dropping off the kids at school this morning I headed over to Pâtisserie Carette to meet a fellow Paris mom and blogger. Carette is one of those patisserie's that is listed in all the Paris guidebooks, like the Food Lovers Guide. It is a well deserved reputation. Carette has some of the most beautiful and delicious pastries in Paris.

Carette is located right on Trocadero circle and is a wonderful place for afternoon tea, or a tartine (a flute - think thinner and smaller than a bagette - sliced in half and served with a small dish of butter and confiture), which is what we had this in the morning....

The sun was still rising and there was a pink/orange haze over the cityscape as I took this picture of Les Invalides.

I'm breathless--- it was like a soft breeze of a Paris morning wafted into my office. *sigh* The photo put me over the top. Thank you---- what a way to start my day! ~bluepoppy

Thank you for yet another great sounding Paris address.
I'll have to try Carette (as well as Maison du Chocolat) next time I'm in town.
The photo is beautiful and is making me want to buy my train ticket RIGHT NOW!

PS: You wouldn't happen to know a good place for a haircut, would you?

Thanks BP.
Anna, If I were visiting Paris, I'd probably head over to Vénus et Mars. It is supposedly pretty popular and I don't think it's too expensive. Check here...http://obsdeparis.nouvelobs.com/articles/p93/a28042.htm
