Mona Lisa Smile

Well, not her smile exactly, but how about her eyes? Fauchon has a really tasty eclair that somehow, I’m sure using some sort of computer, puts images in chocolate on pastries. Almost too pretty to eat, but I managed.


The view of la Madeleine across the street with reflections from the store on the window.


The hot chocolate was good as well.


You get to sit on these cute golden stools.


They have leopord skin eclairs too.


A reflection of some pink stools there. They use a lot of pink in their decor.

  1. Wow. What a cute little place and the eclairs look amazing! I sure with Americans had a love affair with pastries like the French do. I’d be in heaven….and probably a little fat… but very, very happy!

  2. OMG! You’re going to have to send me a list (along with addresses and/or directions) to some of these fabulous places (especially this one). I’m going to be in Paris this summer (we’re flying our niece over here for a graduation gift and plan to take her to Paris) and I’m hoping to make a solo trip in April. I MUST have some of those pastries. How do you bring yourself to eat something that beautiful?

  3. Have I mentioned that I’m absolutely besotted with France and am planning to retire there at least part-time? These are just a few of the reasons why.

  4. Good to see you again on my blog.
    I love visiting Fauchon when I’m in Paris. How clever what they did with the eclairs. Wonder if it means less calories?
    I got my RSS feed set up, so hope to catch up on your blog and visit more often.
    Hope all is well with you.
