Café de la Paix, Paris, France

Situated in the 9th arrondissement of Paris, Café de la Paix is famous. First opened its doors in 1862, it shined and attracted many of the well-knowns of La Belle Époque

Nowadays, the patrons at Café de la Paix includes wealthy businessmen, ladies who brunch and of course, occasionally they have guests like us, the two travelling bunnies, to go there wine and dine so that we can tick it off our "Must-do-together-once-in-a-lifetime list". You see, we went there not only because of their delicious summer menu, but to touch and feel this heritage listed restaurant that featured in many, many Parisian paintings, to surround ourselves in the atmosphere once enjoyed by Oscar Wilde and Hemingway and to admire this piece of art by Charles Garnier, the legendary creator of the Paris Opera. 

The service we received that day was impeccable. They were attentive, but not too much that would make you feel uncomfortable, even annoyed. When the maître d’hôtel led us to our table, I couldn't help myself to notice the details of this restaurant, its interior screams Paris.

It was then and there I gave my first time to Café de la Paix, first time to eat rabbit meat that is. Rabbit, being my Chinese zodiac sign, is definitely a no-no when it comes to food. Having said that, it was also hard to resist and I thought, it would make the whole experience more memorable. The food we had were sensational and to have the famous Millefeuille du Café de la Paix for dessert was the perfect way to finish our meal. 

Café de la Paix, an experience that we would never forget.
