Paris food recommendations

Jump to last reply

I will be in Paris with my husband and 6 year-old daughter next week. The adults have spent time in Paris before, so i don't feel like there are things we have to see. The first two days will be just me and my daughter. I have a rough plan of our two days, but am not sure about food. She is very good in restaurants, but clearly we don't need anything high end.

We arrive Friday mid-morning and will get to our apartment hopefully by noon. We are staying at an apartment on Rue de la Harpe near the Saint-Michel metro stop. Does anyone have any recommendations for bakeries, cheese shops, small grocery stores nearby?

My plan is to go somewhere for lunch, was thinking Cafe de Flore. We have tickets to go up the Eiffel Tower at 4:30. Anyone have reccomendations for dinner in that area? An alternative would be to grab some supplies and eat in the apartment, as I am sure we will be tired.

On Saturday my plan is to go to the Arc de Triumphe and then to Place de la Concorde. My daughter has read about the beheadings that took place there and wants to see the site. I also heard there is some sort of trampoline you can pay for your kid to jump on in the area. I would like to visit the Orangerie. I am guessing we will get a late start given our jet lag. We will need to find lunch somewhere before the museum. As a reward for spending time in a musuem, I thought we might go to the Luxembourg gardens later in the afternoon. I read there is a nice play area there.

My husband arrives Saturday evening. So I have saved the things he is interested in for the next two days.

I guess what I would like to hear is any recommendations for restaurants and cafes, markets, bakeries etc... in the neighborhood of our apartment, possible restaurants around the Eiffel Tower and then some place to eat between the Arc de Triumphe and Place de la Concorde. And, of course any thoughts on my rough plan.

Thanks! Betsy
