Pain et Chocolat

A sweet Paris friend who has a shop on Rue Cler told me about this delightful place nearby, and I was smitten before even walking inside.  It is very small and an older married couple "do it all" from the baking and cooking to the serving.  They are svelte as dancers and move almost as quickly, taking care of the diners. 

The food is fabulous and the inside is as charming as the outside terrace. 
Oh, please note the lap blankets for the cool morning petit déjeuner.

I will be back there for lunch with Holly very soon.
