Muscovado

Perched on the sleepy rue Sedaine a few blocks from the bustling Bastille, Muscovado stole my heart with it’s delicious Belleville coffee served in bright red cups. The cafe is owned by two sisters from the Philippines, Quina and Francine (one a former pastry chef), serving healthy meals and tasty desserts for breakfast and lunch. The menu varies each day, some have an international flair like the breakfast burrito or the Cuban sandwich, but the ingredients are always fresh.

I took a break from shopping during the latter part of the afternoon for a coffee and a strawberry salad – which was just the right amount of sweet.

 

Rue de Lévis

IMG_0784Valentine’s Day is another ordinary day in the city of love. There are candle light dinners every night, wine, couples cuddling and flowers in every nook and cranny every day of the year. As per usual, I stopped by Rue de Lévis – a small bustling street selling fruits, vegetables, meats, baked goods and my favorite tulips. My valentine got me a bouquet of pink roses and we got ourselves a baguette and cheeses for a nice brunch. Everyday has the possibility for sweetness. Spread l’amour tous les jours.
