My last post was all about FALLing in LOVE with Paris in autumn. I shared the brilliant colors in nature, fall street wear, and gave you a peak into the local Parisienne parks.

Well, I had to dedicate another post to FALL in Paris, because I can’t get enough! This time, it’s all about the delicious, WARM treats that are served throughout the city during the cooler months.

My first ever caramel crepe. Next, I will go back to my favorite, the nutella crepe.

Fall is the start of hot coco, hot wine, warm crepe, and hot churro season! There are tons of snack & drink stands throughout the city. Walk right up to the window, order a warm drink and a snack! You can order it for take away, and then you can keep moving or sit on a bench to enjoy!

If you need a break, sit down and indulge at the famous, Angelina Paris Tea House. They are known for their popular African hot chocolate and other sweets. Their hot coco is VERY thick and rich, almost like a pudding, so it is really for chocolate lovers! They also serve many sweets for dining in or take away, my personal favorite is the lemon tarte (tarte citron).

Angelina opened in 1903 and is known as a sophisticated spot and for their famous guests over the years. Coco Chanel was known to stop in! There are several locations throughout Paris, the original Angelina is located on rue de Rivoli, near the Louvre, perfect stop after a walk through the jardin de tuileries.

After exploring museums, strolling the dreamy Parisienne streets, or shopping, the perfect snack is french onion soup (if you are into ooey gooey cheesy goodness)!

French onion soup at Le Petit Vendome on Rue Capucines is flavorful and loaded with cheese! Located in the Opera area and known for their lunch, this is a perfect place to stop after visiting the Palais Garnier (Opera House). Expect a crowd in this quant restaurant.

Yes, it is getting colder outside, but it’s still popular to sit outside of a cafe and people watch, while enjoying a coffee, snack, or cocktail. Many cafe’s offer blankets while sitting outside this time of year! I love this!

    1. Hmmm.. I have tried a lot of different crepes, and most of them are street vendors. They are ALL good to me.lol. Of course, some are better than others.
      My favorite was probably in Montmartre at a crepe/churro stand near the abbesses metro stop and a carousel. I believe the stand is always there bc it looked pretty permanent. 🙂 Nutella is the best (in my opinion).
