Best Cafes in Paris♥Marais

Best Cafes in Paris

Like your Paris guide or hotel concierge may tell you, the Marais is a treasure trove of indie boutiques, vintage finds and nostalgia for Paris’ good old days.
What they may not tell you, however, is that the Marais is also home to some of Paris’ most charming and delightful cafes and patisseries, perfect for a quiet moment of leisure between one shopping spree and another. So, for selective girls like ourselves, here are a few gems of the Marais’ various eateries.

A store dedicated to the petite pastries that are choux (small pastries filled with custard cream), Popelini offers a chic relaxing atmosphere for anyone wanting a sweet break from their day. The colorfully-adorned choux are about 2 euros each- the chocolate flavor is highly recommended. In the surrounding neighborhoods are high-end avant garde boutiques like Kamille and Comme des Garçons.

Amazing shopping experience!

My daughter and I just got back from an fabulous shopping tour with Linda. The experience was fabulous from start to finish. Linda communicated with me via email and WhatsApp and she asked lots of questions about both me and my daughter’s style and our shopping needs and wants. She went above and beyond to help make the experience amazing. She took us to stores where she had hand picked items for both of us. Shopping in Paris can be overwhelming especially with a picky teen, but Linda really delivered. She also gave us great shopping recommendations for the rest of our day. Highly recommend her services!!!!
Incredible afternoon with a true local fashion expert

Our afternoon with Linda was absolutely fantastic, and one we’ll never forget! We all (daughters 11, 14, and myself) found special items we are so excited about, and never would’ve found the fantastic clothes or brands she pointed out to us if it weren’t for her. She gave us advice on what worked and what didn’t, helped bridge the language barrier, and made 3 hours fly by. I would (hopefully will!) do it again in a heartbeat!!

Incredible afternoon with a true local fashion expert

Linda hosted a Fashionista Experience for me, my 13YO and our 22YO friend. She has the best personality and style ideas. Her kindness and professionalism with my family and with store personnel was so very impressive as was her rapport with the saleswomen in the stores. Of our 10 days in Paris, this was one of our favorite outings and so different than anything else we did. No pressure to buy and such an in-depth knowledge of the area. When we ran out of time, she walked us by all the other places she didn't want us to miss. What a gem. Book her while you can.

A fabulous shopping spree!

My favorite part was our guide, Linda! she was so kind and professional. She worked so well with both my granddaughters. They thought she was terrific. She understood their existing styles and preferences but then added tips and encouragement to update their current looks. Going shopping with Linda was my granddaughter's favorite part of the trip!
