Pain & Chocolat

Before going to Paris this time, I did some research on restaurants, cafes and bars to see if there were any places that really appealed to me. I came across reviews about a café/restaurant called Angelina’s Hot Chocolate and was amazed to see reviews unanimously commending its hot chocolate. Just reading those reviews made my mouth water and I made it a point to have a cup of hot chocolate there. Imagine my huge disappointment when I saw the loooooooooong queue at the entrance of the café! I was crushed that I could not get to try the “best hot chocolate in the city”.

The following morning, I decided to have breakfast at a café called Pain & Chocolat, situated on 16, avenue La Motte Piquet in the 7ème Arrondisement. Now, I can safely say that going to this café is one of the best experiences in my life!!! There is a lovely couple in their mid-60’s running the place, and the café is so cosy and has a very homely décor.




I ordered a Continental Breakfast which included freshly baked croissant and bread, 2 types of jam, butter, freshly squeezed orange juice and hot chocolate. The croissant is the fluffiest one I have ever had, bread never tasted this good and finally, the hot chocolate was simply out of this world!!! I loved it. My only regret is that I did not order another one!



Besides different kinds of breakfast, they also serve brunch, lunch, pastry and viennoiseries!

So folks, if you get a chance to visit Paris, make sure you go to Pain & Chocolat, as it definitely well worth it!

I forgot to explain that "pain" in French means bread, and not the actual pain that people might think it is!
