Mamie Gâteaux

Part of the adventure of exploring a city is stumbling across places spontaneously that aren't on the list. Steph and I came across such a place : Mamie Gâteaux that we both agreed is a real Parisian gem. We met a kind and adorable French man working at a cafe who unlocked the door to our window peeking curiosity a few doors down. Come to find out, he and his wife (who is Japanese) own them all.

They have a cafe, which I read about later has wonderful tea and baked goods -- still kicking myself for not eating there.

A boutique full of his wife's Japanese styled and handmade aprons, towels, chocolate, candies and jam.

and a Brocante full of lots of vintage French goodness. All so utterly charming!! It was delightful to see the excellent pairing of French + Japanese cultures and styles mingled together, an absolute favorite combo.

I'm always afraid to stray from my list for fear of falling into a tourist trap. But it looks like you did very nicely here. Such lovely images!

I really must try to visit Mamie Gateaux next time. Your pictures look wonderful and I read on Coco&Me about the delicious food. I think the Japanese lady might have published cookbooks in Japan too!
