Many of you are asking me what the greatest spots are. Places where the locals come, so not the touristic ones. Hereby a list of my favorite places in Paris:
Best places to take photos
Le Brebant. Great interior and good for breakfast till diner. 32 Boulevard Poissonnière, 75009.
Loup. Has a great interior too. Try the cheese cake! It’s a special one from the owner’s aunt in LA. 44 rue du Louvre, 75001. http://www.loup-paris.fr/
Chez Ralph. Yes, the romantic garden of Ralph Lauren. Definitely worth a try (they have caramel popcorn when you drink a coffee 🙂 ) 173, boulevard Saint-Germain, 75006.
