Funny enough, when I went to Chambelland for the first time when my mom was in town (she prefers to eat gluten free when she can), I realized it is literally across the streets from one of my first Parisian apartments in 2008. The neighborhood has certainly gotten some spunky places and it never seems to stop. Chambelland has a precious little patio, and when you walk in, it’s a breath of fresh air, with sweet and savory treats and adorable deco.

I adored their brownies, that are moist and delicious. We also gave the cookie and lemon tart a whirl which were equally as yummy. I’m thinking next time I’m going to have to give their sandwiches a try. If you’re staying in at Chambelland, top your order off with a cuppa filter coffee for an afternoon pick me up (I seem to always need one of those).

A new staple to the neighborhood, and one of the somewhat small handful of gluten free friendly places in Paris.

After our dreamy lunch at Abri, Anne and I strolled eastward. The winter days have some sunshine, which makes for great stroll weather. We embarked with bellies full and headed aimlessly in the direction of the canal over good conversation.

We zigzaged past the canal and ultimately followed the route of the line 2 metro line, one of the areas of Paris to discover more of. We strolled along the avenue stopping at windows filled with Algerian pastries and admired the street art while soaking up some winter sunbeams. Before we knew it we had arrived on the street of Paris’s new cookie shop, Scoop Me A Cookie, and other fabulous places like Le Perchoir or the Edith Piaf museum. What a rad neighborhood, right next to La Fine Mousse, too.

Have you tried Lola’s Cookies? Well, if you haven’t you probably should. They are moist and deliciously perfect and authentic American cookies.

You can get all of the classic American tastes delivered to you in Paris, which is absolutely to die for. Founded by two Americans gone Parisian (one of which is Lindsey from Lost in Cheeseland), Lola’s Cookies does orders for pick up or delivery in Paris— and is perfect for get togethers such as tea parties or birthdays! Two of my personal favorites, Snickerdoodle and Sugar cookies, were the stars of the tea party pictured above.

Are you tempted? Check out their website and don’t forget to follow them on and Instagram (and of course drool over all of the sugar deliciousness)!
