Delicious tiny Fondue restaurant on the charming Rue Mouffard in Paris! You will feel like you are transported to Switzerland, cuckoo clocks, cow bells and all. The adorable old couple who run this place are so hospitable and lovely.
Order the cheese fondue with cured meats on the side, and a bottle of the white wine. For dessert, it is a real treat to get the flaming apple pie "Tarte Tatin en Flambe". After the meal, you are presented with a small glass of Armagnac, with a prune in the bottom, which has been soaked 20 hours in the alcohol.

These are the most beautiful roses I have ever seen! I was walking near the Madeleine church in Paris on a rainy winter day, on the Rue Saint-Honore heading towards Hermes, and I was struck by the beauty inside of this tiny shop.
It is so great to sit in a Paris Cafe and do whatever work you need to do! Writing, Drawing, MBA class papers, etc.! If you go in the morning, order a Cafe Creme (coffee with frothy milk) with a Croissant, or for something more exciting, a Tartine (baguette bread with butter and jelly). Read a French newspaper or magazine to get into the vibe, or work on your creative projects. Great fun watching the street life and relaxing!
