Paris rouge - une pâtisserie


Near Place d'Aligre on a Sunday morning, one finds the world perched in outdoor cafés. I was captivated by the rich façade of this pâtisserie and would have been tempted to lounge but alas there was no room!






I will have to return



Rue Théophile Roussel

I'm smiling. Because I read that you have to go back there. And you write that so many times that I imagine you with a loooong to-do-list, or a biiiiig notebook, with thousends of addresses, places to see, things to do, food to eat..:o)

Une autre patisserie, Genie! Oui, je comprends. Tellement pour manger et boire ; tellement peu d'heure.
Bon appétit, Genie.

Ann said...

Hmmm... I think a very charming cafe like that would always be full ♥

Richard said...

Généralement, le café dans les pâtisseries est encore meilleur. Et puis, ici, la façade est tellement belle...
Un bel endroit pour un rendez-vous d'amoureux...

I would love to sit at one of these tiny tables and have a pain au chocolat. Maybe I´ll do it in July, I will stay in an apartment close to the Marché d´Aligre.

I love to sit on a terrace and have a drink, doesn't matter where, but this one is looking very inviting.

What a gorgeous looking cafe Genie, made even more so by the glimpse of some very delicious looking pastries through the window.

Looks a beautiful sunny day, perfect to chat with friends and enjoy this adorable patisserie and the delicious treats! :)
Love this picture!

This is glorious, Genie!! I'm so disappointed you weren't able to secure a spot there. Next time...

Janey and Co. said...

I can imagine it would be full with that glorious sunshine....Inviting place...

This is Belgium said...

Next time there will definitely be a spot for you.. I just know .. très belle photo...I love the oval images and the scenery they depict

Virginia said...

Of course I adore this photo. I wish I were there right now! ( I think the couple on the left were just about to....) :)

Soaking up the warm sunshine. I love the pastoral scenes around the door way!

Rob and Mandy said...

Oh yes, you will have to! What a cool place to hang around, having un petit noir et un croissant.

Loree said...

Please do return and show us their pastries. I am sure they were sublime.

Clueless in Boston said...

Interesting group of people at this pâtisserie. Two old couples, two young couples and one solo femme.

Alexa said...

That sure does look inviting! Not surprised you couldn't snag a spot—those folks look like they've established a beachhead and might just make a day of it. :~}

M said...

Et moi, aussi! C'est vraiment une facde magnifique! If e
We hadn't a) been there so early and/or b) already indulged and/or c) had plans to indulge elsewhere ... I would have loved to sit there avec un cafe et mes amies!

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Well, Marie is telling the truth... we had already stopped at two places in Marche d'Aligre after stopping on our way "to" the market at Ble Sucre for pet't dejeuner and had another one or two on our list yet to visit...

So many patisseries and so little time...

I am in my "home away from home" the Atlanta airport and will get to my destination at oh dark thirty, sadly .... not Paris. Tant pis pour moi.

Bises,
Genie

Your red background and this red photograph . . . my eyes are starting to vibrate. It looks inviting and pretty. I will wear sunglasses.

Marie-Noyale said...

THat's exactly what it means..
It'a red light for me... too dangerous a place!!!!

Randy said...

I really love this shot. I also love how close people sit together there. Here we are so much more about personal space.

Kate said...

I had lunch today with someone who recently spent 2 weeks in Paris. After talking to her and looking at your photos, I would love to return...it's been too long ago since I strolled the boulevard.

Oh love this picture!

Simone said...

This looks delightful! I was walking the streets of Paris yesterday overcome by the selection of cafes. It is so difficult to choose just one!!!!

Rien de plus agréable qu'un petit déjeuner au soleil...
Belle journée,

Pierre

Kiki said...

There never is.... :))))
I pass it every Sunday and if the weather permits, it's just FULL with sun hungry happy people! Always a good sign, especially in Paris where you're truly spoilt with lovely bakeries/confiseries/cafés/bars/
eateries and wine/delicatessen points!
Was lead to you via Shell Sherree and am glad I did the jump!
More luck to you another time :) It won't go away anytime soon....
