PARIS: 3RD ARRONDISSEMENT
EAT
Bontemps - delicious pastries in the Marais
Located on rue de Bretagne, not far from Marché des Enfants Rouges, Bontemps is one of those places you enter and like everything you see! The family run pastry shop is small and sweet with a clean aesthetic and beautiful patterns all over. Their own patterns adorn the walls and a beautiful tiled floor gives ...

EAT
Maison Plisson
On the Boulevard Beaumarchais, just down the road from some of our favourite shops, be it the famed Merci, the lovely children's shop Bonton or Soeur, you will find one of my current favourite places: Maison Plisson a restaurant, bakery, and deli all in one. The products are without exception fabulous. Mostly local, it is ...

SHOP
La Mercerie Parisienne
One of my favourite shops in Paris is not a shoe shop or a fancy food shop (though there are many). It is actually a beautiful, little haberdashery shop in the Marais: L'Entrée des Fournisseurs is full of ribbons, buttons, fabrics and wool, just like in the good old days. It also stocks some of my ...

Kids and the City
If you have any spare time between the 3rd and 5th of June and happen to be in Paris, do check out the children's fair "Kids in the City" on rue Francs Bourgeois in the 3rd. The fair was put together by the lovely Estelle who also runs Nordinary -- one of my favourite webshops ...

SHOP
Bonton
It is hard to believe but Merci, one of Paris' most fashionable concept stores has been out-trumped by a kid's store. Just a stone's throw away from Merci on the corner where the boulevard Beaumarchais turns into the boulevard Filles du Calvaire, Bonton has opened up a 800 M² new flagship shop. It is absolutely ...

Marché des Enfants Rouge
Courtney and her family were over in Paris visiting from London and we wandered around the North Marais, doing a bit of shopping, people watching and coffee drinking. It really reminded me about how much I love this little area. I want to write a thousand and one posts on all the lovely little places ...

Merci
It's been the talk of town. Merci, Paris' newest concept store opened its doors last week. When I visited it was so new, they were still finishing off the paintwork. Even if you are just in Paris for an afternoon, it is worth checking it out. A huge loft style space houses a florist, an ...

17TH ARRONDISSEMENT
Le Marchand D'Etoiles
There is something really wholesome and comforting about putting your kids to bed in a nice, clean, and comfy-looking pyjama. I like to think it might help them get a restful night… The French label Marchand d'Etoiles (literally translated: the Merchant of Stars) is the champion of lovely, comfortable kid's nightclothes. And so they should ...

Pink Flamingo
My favourite pizza place in Paris goes by the original name of Pink Flamingo. The first outpost was out by the Canal St Martin, but a new venue has just opened, in the middle of the Marais. Why do I like it so much? The pizzas are great -- the Pink Flamingo crew has decided ...

Sweden in Paris
While 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 ...

Our friend, Al MacCuish’s wonderful children’s book, The Bee Who Spoke is now available in paperback as of today! It is a beautifully illustrated story of a girl named Belle and her adventures in the French countryside, where she meets a talking bee and is introduced to the wonders of nature. Not only is it a charming and engaging story, but one that is educational and inspiring too. @almac103 @lizmatthewspr @courtneyadamo #babyccinoreads #babyccinokids

Wild Garlic, or Ramson, is abundant in early Spring. We have a simple pesto recipe in our bio which is great with pasta, on fish, or with a cheese toastie! And if you are wondering what’s so good about wild garlic, well, it’s great for you! It has antibacterial, antibiotic, antiseptic properties so it makes sense to pack as much into your diet as you can. It reduces blood pressure, heart disease and the risk of stroke. It’s also fun to forage. Recipe from @laraoflondon
