Sundays in the Marais

I love Sundays in the Marais.  Strolling down the quaint streets of this lively and diverse neighborhood that comprises the 3rd and 4th arrondisments of Paris is quickly becoming a Sunday tradition for us.  

Rue des Francs-Bourgeois
Today, we tried out a new creperie, Breizh Cafe.  A fabulous little restaurant with great food and a chic atmosphere.  My chorizo and fromage buckwheat crepe was delicious.  I love that they had a smaller portion size served in bite size pieces.  (This made me feel less guilty about ordered the salted butter caramel crepe for dessert....).  All washed down with a cup of the house cider.  Delish!

After a late lunch, we strolled around the area and did some window shopping. I fell in love with this little store and their adorable display.

Se Magnifique!  

As for the rest of the weekend, we enjoyed meeting up with some of Park's friends from HEC.  We met Peter and Caroline for Champagne in the 6th (St-Germain-Des-Pres area) on Thursday (after getting turned away from La Cremerie, dying to go there) and then had a night out with other friends on Friday.  Park's friend Russel took us to a fabulous wine bar in the 1st (near the Louvre).  We will definitely be returning there for dinner soon. It looked spectacular. 

We spent the rest of the night at the Irish pub "Frog and Rosbif" (Roastbeef? I still don't get it).  They have a little brewery right in the pub and brew six of their own beers.  It's a fun place with an upbeat atmosphere.  Although I would be happy sitting in a wine bar all night, pub time is tres important to the Mr.  It is growing on me too...
