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.

This pain au chocolat is from Louis’s favorite boulangerie …..which is saying a lot from a Parisian. It’s called Le Moulin Vert, on the corner of Rue Didot and Rue du Moulin Vert in the 14th, right off of metro Alésia. They have the most delicious pastries that are different (and better!) than the classic ones on every street corner. The peeps who work there aren’t very likable, but their treats certainly are. Definitely worth a try.
This week has been all about the recognition of major transitions. It’s that time of year. Very soon things will be very different. Not only in a new apartment, but a new daily routine, new faces and new places. It’s refreshing.
Have a lovely Sunday.

Two new blogs I started following from Lovelorn Unicorn‘s blogroll: Commas + Clauses and Clever Nettle.
Dreaming of a Colorado winter, even with no snow.
Which district should I stroll in next?
Do you know Wouffi’s Bakery? A friend of mine showed me this site and it sure is lovely!
I’m trying to decide which flavor from Lola’s Cookies I’ll order for housewarming holidays…. Hmmm!
What’s on your Christmas tree this year? My mom has the best taste in ornaments for my family….
The most delicious place to get anything that seems like a French pastry. Pain au chocolat, croissants au beurre, macarons, tartes, tartines, baguette sandwiches, chouquettes, quiche… it’s a carb-filled heaven, that you will not regret.
Best. Baguette. Sandwiches. Ever. Basically the best range of choices and mixtures. Amazing. Perfect for picnicing at Parc Montsouris.
Open everyday except Mondays from 7am-8:30pm.
