Fenocchio – Nice – FRANCE – Endless ice cream flavors

Fenocchio – Nice

In Côte d’Azur, and specifically in Nice there is not too many restaurants we can recommend. If you cannot afford to eat in a palace, there is maybe Keisuke Matsushima. Few gems can be found and I wish to go to try them soon! I have a little place to recommend.

It may look like a tourist trap but it is not. A real ice cream maker in the heart of the old town exists. A visit to Nice cannot be complete without tasting one of their creations.

From vanilla to coke, chocolate to figs, or beer to Piña Colada… I believe they almost have no limits.

Telescope – Paris, FRANCE – The quiet and cute coffee place

The vibe here is different than in other few similar places.  You can enjoy a cup of coffee (or tea) just in front the counter. If you are curious, you can go to the basement which offer a unique old cave style room, but it not seems to be in use actually..

I am a tourist.

When strolling around in the chateaux for my 4th times (or 3rd?), planning where I should take my guests to go for lunch (except sandwich in my bag before visiting the huge park ) of the Chateau. Just before the end of the tour, I heard a sound of restaurant (kling~kling + whispering), Angelina!

On a discrete street, this pastry shop with large windows, the place is inviting you to enter and discover their wonders artisanally made every day.

Fine pastries, well prepared. I have been to this place 5 times so far, never been disappointed about what i ordered. I love the chocolate used. Those pieces of sweet are nicely displayed, how to resist to the temptation ? Even the price is “okay”: from 1 to 6 euros. Continue reading

Coutume Café – Paris, FRANCE – Best coffee shop in Paris ?

One of the best coffee I ever tried in Paris.

I’ve also been to Coutume Café for their brunch, which costs between 25 and 30 euros. I was seduced by the Detox Veggie Brunch, I really felt tired that day!

It is good to discover new drinks, “Le Cherbet” was totally unknown to me. It is in fact a lemon squash drink mix mixed with milk. Really efficient to make me feel more awake.

The weekend brunch is freshly made by order, despite the food looked so beautiful, colorful and appetizing….. I wasn’t delighted by the food. My mouth didn’t got the same appealing. Veggies are fresh, and well-selected.
