Starting off the weekend with some Belgian Früli Strawberry Beer, so good! instagram.com/p/ZbpTWbDTQB/
E. Dehillerin has been selling kitchen, cooking and baking supplies in Paris since the 1820′s and has an impressive stock of cooking pots, utensils and pretty much any kind of kitchen gadget you can think of. We had originally come here for an oyster shucker and some copper pots but spent quite a while browsing through their inventory.
The extensive collection of copper pots and original antique cabinetry.
Pastry tins in all different shapes and sizes.
The store was packed from floor to ceiling with products and utensils stored in rustic baking tins and hardware boxes.
More baking goods.
Cute little tart tin. We wish we could have bought them all!
E. Dehillerin is located between the 1st and 2nd arrondissement and is a perfect place to visit on a lazy weekend. We suggest stopping by Rue Montorgueil for some crepes or fondue while you’re there!
Coutume Cafe was one of our stops in the St Germain district in Paris. The cafe has been around for a couple of years and we liked the food and coffee so much that we even debated doing back again for brunch or a latte to-go a few times during the trip.
One of the best lattes we’ve had!
The interior is a nice contrast of modern with rustic elements like raw walls and dark wood flooring.
Black Rye Sandwich with Fresh Goat Cheese and Vegetables.
Love these pyrex beaker water pitchers.
Buckwheat Pancakes with Smoked Salmon and Mustard Dill Sauce.
If you’re looking for a place to eat in Paris, Coutume Cafe is a great spot for brunch or to pick up a coffee and snack. We’ll definitely be back!
We visited Conran Shop while in Paris which is a furniture and home accessories shop originally from London which stocks mostly iconic designer pieces for the home. We were impressed by the huge selection and managed to pick up a few things for ourselves while we were there.
Classic Eames molded plastic chairs with a variety of bases.
Huge selection of housewares and kitchen products we had fun browsing through.
Love this “Penguin Donkey” magazine rack by Isokon Plus.
Modern hourglasses in different shapes and sizes.
A selection of chairs and furniture pieces.
We’ll be sharing some of our finds from the trip shortly but in the meantime still have a lot more Paris posts coming your way so stay tuned!
While in Paris we stopped by the one of the vertical gardens designed by Patrick Blanc at Musée Du Quai Branly. Part of the museum is covered with hundreds of these beautiful and diverse different species of plants. We loved wandering around the area and snapped a few photos. Hello Eiffel Tower!
