On the near Rue des Martyrs,  on walking distance from our Montmartre Studio Loft , is a simple but savoury restaurant. Don’t expect chic dining because the ambiance gives a feeling back to the 60-70′s with formica furniture. The food however is fresh and with excellent ingredients. They have a small wine list.

To Bonton with the kids

Sally Peabody gives a great tip on her blog :

If you are visiting Paris with children 12 or under, or, are shopping for kids or grandkids for fashion or accessories with that ineffable French ‘touch’, the new Bonton flagship store in the upper Marais will be a trove of temptations. Bonton is the ‘little brother’ of Bonpoint, the well known luxury French children’s clothing firm. Bonton spreads its wares over three architect designed floors. While adults shop for children’s clothing, homewares, accessories and furniture, kids can watch movies, get their hair cut in an old-fashioned barber shop, eat cupcakes or curl up in the library area with a good book. Brilliant concept and beautiful things!

Charlot Roi des Coquillages is a traditinal seafood restaurant in Paris on walking distance of the Montmartre studio Lofts.

Charlot is wellknown for its Seafood Platter but Charlot’s Seafood Bisque and Swordfish Steak are amongh quite recommended specialities.

Its decor is a little bright with motifs of sea, pink colors, and several mirrors making the restaurant appear larger than it is. Charlot Roi des Coquillages has a lively and entertaining atmosphere.

In short, it’s a good restaurant to experience for those looking for a nice time.

Le Cafe de la Paix  is undoubtedly one of the most popular in Paris. With its exquisite Second Empire style, it has forever been a favored hangout for celebrities and tourists alike. The leafy look combined with the rich decor of ornate work and deep polished wood creates an atmosphere of freshness blending with class.

You can drop in here for an early breakfast or a delayed supper as the cafe remains open till late in the night. During winter, you can dine alfresco at the winter terrace that overlooks the Boulevard des Capucines, while summer months see crowds filling in at the open air terrace that gives a great view of the Place de l’Opera.

While in paris, this is one destination you should not miss.
