Mamie Gateaux

• 28 August 2009



























When the renovation of La Maisonnette du Coteau is finished, I'm plugging for a day in Paris--without the hectic pace from our last trip. One of the major reasons I want to return is so I can revisit the lovely Mamie Gateaux--a shop, brocante and bakery. Yep, it's a 3-for-1 folks. You can eat a slice of homemade cake, walk 5 feet and buy a handmade linen tote for a modest price, and then walk 5 more feet and explore vintage goodness from the past century. It's simply fabulous thanks to the Japanese (her) meets French (him) details throughout. The kind couple who owns Mamie Gateaux clearly have exquisite taste. If you're a fan of Japanese simplicity, add this to your must-visit-list while in Paris.

p.s. Also in the neighborhood is the famous Poilane. Oh that apple tart with it's perfect crust...

What a wonderful store this seems to be. Just my kind!
I will have to swing by next time in Paris.
