That’s a mouthful, but it’s true. Café de Flore has marked the streets of Saint Germain with it’s art deco wonders, notable passerbys and their extremely expensive expresso. Despite its regulars of l’époque,  Café de Flore has maintained a popularity contest with the also renowned  Les Deux Magots that is only a few steps over. Café de Flore’s employees are the type of waiters that are featured in old Disney movies and in vintage games or cartoons: the older Parisians with white and black suits and the tray basically glued to their hand. This does not mean they are friendly, but rather snobby in the “still awesomely Parisian” kind of way. If you’re looking for a spot with speedy service where you can sit for a while, this may not be your pick on a weekend. However, it’s worth the over priced expresso and cake served on a beautiful little platter with branded porcelain. Perfect for a session of people watching on their beautifully art deco terrace, or a little catch up with a friend.

Winter cupcakes at Sugar Daze - De quelle planete es-tu? 1Sometimes a cupcake is just what you need on a cold winter day. Sugar Daze is the perfect place for that. Olivia and I go sometimes to indulge in the deliciously moist cupcakes that Cat has to offer. It’s a little getaway, we can chit chat and flip through magazines with a cup of tea. I stepped out of the box this time and tried a new flavor, as I usually go with barbe à papa. The cherry on top is that Sugar Daze also now has several new flavors on the shelf.

A little sweet tooth is never a bad thing, right?

I’m not a cupcake addict, I swear. I’m a Sugar Daze addict. It’s comforting being a regular, wouldn’t you say?

With this winter cold, a warm cup of tea does just the thing.

Have you seen all the adorable tea party goodness on Lovely Stitch?

Need some tips on making a good chai?

I just love this mint sweater.

This place looks fabulous for snacks and tea.

One of my favorite spots for an afternoon tea is Colorova.

Dying to go back to Amsterdam just to go to this place.

Tea parties out are great… so are tea parties at home.

Where do you like to sip tea and stay cozy in the winter?
