Les Deux Abeilles is a precious little restaurant and tea room in the 7th arrondissement, right around the corner from the Eiffel Tower. It’s got that homey- grandma feel… the floral wallpaper, the wooden shelves and furniture with the cakes all sliced perfectly and placed nicely on cake plates, the white tablecloths and greenery indoors…. It’s cozy and girly but elegant, and has everything you could hope for on  the savory menu, from salads to quiches to pasta . The dessert menu offers all of the classic tarts, lemon, apple, rhubarb, chocolate, crumbles of all sorts…

I discovered this place through a colleague, despite having studied all four years of my Bachelor’s degree only 5 minutes away. Lunches are crowded and reservations most certainly needed, but pop by a late afternoon after a stroll along the Seine and have a high tea if they’ve got open tables. You’ll feel as if you’re in a farm house paradise far away from the hustle bustle of Paris. The hometown feel screams ladies who lunch, and they’ve got a killer hot chocolate to lure you in in the winter months.

It’s open from 9am to 7pm, best for lunch and high tea. The back room is like an indoor courtyard, with heaps of light and the perfect ambiance for a slice of tart with your favorite tea.

While I was in Denver, I popped by The Market with Kristen and Ashlae.

It was the perfect place with a hidden hustle bustle to catch up and discuss all things lovely over a warm cup of coffee. I was bummed I wasn’t too hungry when I got there because everything on display looked so gosh darn good! Those cakes…

I really like their old fashioned pictures of Denver all over the walls and their heart-like metal chairs. Cozy places like this are just the best.

I think that if I lived in Denver, I would go here often to read and sip an espresso.

Sometimes a little break for tea and a snack is just what one needs! This tea party was with miss Olivia.

A place I like to pop into is Helmut Newcake, Paris’s only bakery of it’s kind… gluten free!

Autumn has turned to winter. Looks like we won’t be seeing as much of those beautiful autumn leaves on the cobble stone.

Hope your weekend was splendid.
