If you want to stop for a break, Pâtisserie de Gascogne is a great place to rest your feet and treat yourself to un café et une petite gâterie. They also offer sandwiches, salads and fresh bread, but my eye went directly to the yummy array of pastries. Quite the popular place, I noticed more than a few people leaving with cakes and baguettes!

You know how some stores are so cluttered that you can’t find anything? Au contraire at Des Vertes et Des Pas Mûres. This medium to high-end boutique caught my eye and is organized so you can find exactly what you want. The loft-style space with wood floors and high ceilings displays exclusive lines from France and also has luxury basics such as Petit Bateau t-shirts and tanks.
