Sweden in Paris

cafe-suedois.jpgWhile the girls were in Paris this past weekend I dragged them to one of my favourite kid-friendly eateries in Paris, and I realised: I had not blogged about it yet!

The café in the Centre Culturel Suedois, based in a Hotel Particuler on rue Payenne in the heart of the Marais, is a little gem. In the middle of Paris the Swedes have managed to create a piece of Sweden (at least, this is what I imagine Sweden to be like)! The tables are covered in checked fresh-coloured table cloths, the furniture is made out of light wood or painted in fresh light colours, and it serves lovely sandwiches, tea and coffee at a reasonable price. The food is very un-French: carrot cakes, open Swedish sandwiches, meatballs, and so on. It is such a nice change after having eaten innumerable baguettes!

But the main attraction for me is the outside space — a big courtyard great for kids to run around in and a world away from the crowded sidewalk tables you find at most cafés in this city!

Yes, It was great! Especially since we managed to grab the only table in the direct sunshine! Perfect!
