Food Scene
If you are craving a real flat white, cappuccino, latte or macchiato - this is the place for you! Lovely english speaking baristas who care about the coffee not just the drawing on top. Sur place (eat in) or emporter (take-away). Make sure you grab a coffee loyalty card. Also provide light french food and wifi. Open everyday!

If you are from Melbourne or Australia and have been to Hardware Society - they have just opened in Paris opposite Sacre Coeur. Great for breakfast, coffee and lunch - however make sure you get there early - it has become very popular. It is also a great location from which to visit Sacre Coeur. Visit the church in the early morning before the tourists and admire the view before breakfast.

Pierre has become a bit of a Paris legend for his fusion Korean/French food. There is a six-course mystery menu at night (two meat courses, two fish courses, cheese and dessert) for 40euros which is very good value. After you finish a course you are asked to guess the ingredients.

Excellent local boulangerie supplying traditional baguettes, bread loaves, croissants, pastries, tarts, and take-away food appropriate for picnics and a busy day on the tourist trail (e.g. filled baguettes, quiche, salads). Walk down the side of the building along Rue Reaumur and watch the bakers and patissiers at work.

This is a no-frills quaint and traditional family run crepe and cider restaurant. Family friendly, pretty inexpensive and authentic. Last time I was there they also have gluten free options. And you get to walk up and down famous Rue Montorgueil enroute!

If you want to learn how to make some French staples such as a croissant, pain au chocolate, eclairs, macarons or savory items - I highly recommend Le Foodist. They are small classes and we always comes away with much more of what we produced than we could ever eat ourselves. Always a great experience!

Within 200m of the apartment and named after a small village in Burgundy (Bourgogne), where the head chef and owner was born. More casual than fine cuisine. Excellent dishes of the region with a modern twist and sometimes Asian influences. Simple but good wine list. Open lunch and dinner every day except Monday.

Parks & Nature
A great Sunday afternoon promenade park. You can walk up to the tower in the middle of the park for a view over a different part of Paris. Take our table tennis bats and balls with you and you can play at the tables just outside the northern fence.

One of the best kept secrets of Paris. The NYC Highline is modelled on the Paris Promenade Plantee (or Coulee Verte). The old elevated railway line has been converted into gardens. The trail is well maintained, has a mix of formal and more wild gardens and the elevated level gives great views of paris buildings and streets. If you are feeling particularly energetic you can walk all the way through one of our favourite parks Bois de Vincennes and on to Chateau de Vincenne (1.5hours). Afterwards you can get the metro back into Paris.

Everything Else
Great for people watching at any time of the day - particularly in summer when everyone sits by the canal in the late afternoon with wine and cheese for impromptu evening picnics. Lots of good coffee spots, restaurants, bars and shops in the streets close by.

Getting Around
One of the easiest locations to hire cars relative to the location of the apartment. Most rental companies are located there and from the apartment you can take metro Line 4 from Reaumur Sebastopol or take a bus to Gare de L'Est.

Entertainment & Activities
If you feel like a Sunday movie or relaxing evening - the UGC cinema at Chatelet shows most new release movies in their original language (not dubbed and with french subtitles). Look for 'VO' next to the movie title. 'VF' means version french and will be dubbed. The cinema is around 900m from the apartment.

Sightseeing
Our favourite Seine river picnic location - particularly in summer. Excellent views of Notre Dame and Ile St Louis. Summer picnics are a Paris tradition and this about a 20minute walk from the apartment past Notre Dame and across Pont de l'Archevêché or Pont au Double. People watch, boat watch, enjoy your wine and cheese....
