A vacation to Paris, France, may end up being the most memorable trip of your lifetime, and with dozens, if not hundreds, of sights to see you’ll want to make every stop, sip, and bite count. Luckily, Elite Destination Homes has spectacular vacation apartment rentals doused in luxury and charm, right in the heart of the greatest city on Earth. To make your vacation with us even more memorable, here are three unmissable local cafés worth every penny.
LE PELOTON CAFE
A hidden gem if there ever was one, Le Peloton Café lies on a quiet, historic street only 500 feet from the Seine River. This unpretentious, hip café aims at making the best espresso in Paris, and perhaps the tastiest waffles you’ll ever consume. What Le Peloton lacks in posh and capacity, is made up in fresh, quality ingredients, and fast and friendly service. Their flat white coffee will still be on your mind long after you’ve returned home.
The first thing you’ll notice when entering this superb café is the rousing aroma of the fresh-made waffles. Indulging in the cheese and ham waffles might be the best decision of your life. Le Peloton is also walking distance from many landmarks, including the Louvre and Notre-Dame Cathedral. It’s also a short drive from the Eiffel Tower, Trocadéro, and the Arc de Triomphe.
A. LACROIX PATISSIER
Located across the lazy Seine River from one of Paris’ grandest attractions, the Notre-Dame Cathedral, is the best pastry café in France. A. Lacroix Pâtissier features delectable, handcrafted pastries, desserts, and snacks in a down-to-earth café setting with unbeatable views of the cathedral and river.
Absolutely try the locally roasted coffee and sourced tea. Both pair perfectly with their sizable macaroons and croissants. The friendly staff at A. Lacroix Pâtissier will greet you with a smile, and your sweet tooth will be forever satisfied. You’ll thank us later.
No Paris vacation is complete without an afternoon meal at the city’s oldest café: Le Procope. This popular and luxurious café, founded in 1686, is centrally located and within walking distance to both the Louvre, Notre-Dame Cathedral, and our lavish Rue Saints Peres and Rue Du Four vacation apartment rentals. Dine in maximal elegance in the main room, endowed with crystal chandeliers, 18th-century window drapes, and stunning French paintings.
The fresh seafood at Le Procope is to-die-for—enjoy succulent scallops, clams, salmon, cod, or pollock with a glass of Paris’ finest white wine. You’re guaranteed to get swept away by Le Procope’s whimsical atmosphere and indelible cuisine.
VACATION APARTMENT RENTALS
Equally crucial on your Paris vacation is selecting the best accommodation, and Elite Destination Homes can help with that. Le Triomphe, located within walking distance of remarkable shopping and grandiose attractions, is a three-bedroom luxury apartment with a taste of the past. Rue Du Four and Rue Saints Peres are both in the St. Germain neighborhood, a lively, youthful area just meters away from the Luxembourg Gardens. These two apartments combine modern art, old-world charm, and magnificent street views. There’s no better time than now to explore the best city in the world.
