Paris in July 2019 - La Vie Douce
After my last Paris in July post was all about street cafés, it's only natural that this post features those sweet delights we can't live without.
The French seem to love the "sweet life" - just look at their delicious desserts like profiteroles, mousse au chocolat, crème brûlée and crème caramel. Or just take a step into one of the many Pâtisseries.
Éclairs, Milles-feuilles, des gâteaux et tartes... a true paradise for everybody with a sweet tooth (or several...)
Aren't these mouthwatering?
Many love macarons like the ones in the top photo. They are available in so many colors, but if they are called "a Sunday in Paris" they have to have sprinkles.
I'm not sure what the sweets in the next image are. I saw them in the window of a very elegant shop in Le Marais, one of the oldest neighborhoods in Paris. There were no signs with prices, so I assume they weren't what I would call "affordable".
Of course you can get ice cream in Paris - how can you not? The selection is huge as you can see here on the board of Berthillon at its store on the Île Saint-Louis.
However, while Berthillon ice cream is super delicious, you can get good ice cream and sorbet almost everywhere in Paris. Enjoy!
