One of the Grand Magasins you can't skip when visiting Paris is of course Lafayette. Their gourmet department was transferred from the mens departement to the Lafayette Maison shop across the street. All of the high-class shops that are to be found in Pari are also present in this new venue. Whether you look for macaroons, foie gras, a bottle... More

I never ever write reviews but this coffee truck deserves one! This place has saved my exhausted body and soul so many times. And compared to almost all the parisian bistros, brasseries, cafes and restaurants, where expresso seems to be milk-resistant and simply doesn't mix in with lait, their cappucino is perfect. Baristas know their stuff, the beans are tasty... More

Great little coffee van in front of Galeries Lafayette. I had the best take-away cappuccino I have ever had in Paris. My wife ordered a hot chocolate and it was to die for - creamy and rich.

Neighbourhood Profile
Opera / Bourse
The neighbourhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades, and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here, modern day workers continue to take advantage of the legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theatres, and cinemas sit side by side with French bistros predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in another. The area is most famous for the Palais Garnier opera house and glamorous department stores.
