Le Moulin de la Vierge II


Le Moulin de la Vierge


This boulangerie sits in a wasteland of drab buildings in the 14ème,
a single jewel rescued from the wrecking ball.

It has tile walls
a wood-fired oven
murals of women carrying armfuls of wheat
etched glass doors
delicious breads, and...

Tervehdys Genie.
Katselin kuviasi ja ne ovat ihania. Kuten tämä koristeellinen pieni kauppa. Hmmm.. herkullinen.

A fabulously looking shop Genie. I do like the pattern in the tiles at the base. Did you buy any treats?

I love the story of this place—it's always gratifying when the "little guy" wins, and this place was so worth what he went through to save it. Thanks, Genie!

Halcyon said...

I'm glad it was saved. Love the tiles on the facade. Bet the bread is good too!

Jack said...

The façade is wonderful, with great color, great tile, great lettering and everything else. Love the story!

Mary said...

A fabulous story to go with a wonderful place. I love the etched windows and the red! And i'm pretty certain i'd adore their bread. From a wood-fired oven. (Also my favorite way to bake pizza.) Alas, i have to go out to have it that way. No wood fire oven in my suburban home. lol. Beautiful post as always, Genie!

Wow!!! What a story!!! I absolutely would love to visit this one!!! Is Basil still connected to the boulangerie???

Vreni said...

I just checked out this address on google streetview. What a depressing neighourbood. But the boulangerie looks great and makes me want to eat a pain au chocolat right now.

Somehow it is comforting to know that places like this continue to exist. This is what helps make up Paris' charm.

Mon Dieu! To think this could have been knocked down. It's a real gem.
