La Labrouette

Ahhhhhhh, creme broulee......we had it several times, but here it was the creamiest and most flavorful.

Judi really enjoyed it, too!  ")   We had also had a wonderful onion soup, which we had tried at other restaurants, but not as thick and tasty as here.  I highly recommend this little spot to anyone visiting Paris in the Latin Quarter.

A pretty smile from Pat..............what a great help she was to us constantly on this trip.  How nice to finally meet an "online" friend and find them to be exactly in person as they seem online.  A great friend, indeed!

Pat took this photo of the Labrouette Cafe in the day time.   How different it seems at night...... of course, it's very busy then.  ")
(The end of our 6th, sad.....half our trip over and so much more we wanted to do and stretch out our time with one another.)

La Droguerie

Talk about eye candy!  This little shop in Les Halles was chocked full of sweets from wall to wall and end to end.  ")  Jan, Barb, Judi and I made the trek from the Eiffel Tower to Les Halles by Metro and were not disappointed.  Pat and Susan had already been to the shop and clued us in on this little jewel.  As you can see, I brought a sampling of things home with me. 

The selection of velvet butterflies was scant.....the little bowl was nearly empty..... especially of the smaller ones.   I sent some of the red rose ribbon to our friend Minori in Japan who did not get to join us on our trip.

Also sent to Minori were some of those darling buttons.  The tiny-tucked salmon colored ribbon is one of my favorites.

The beautiful floral bias tape binding was made up in bracelets in the store.  They would measure off a piece, slide a charm or two onto the piece and sew bracelet closures onto the ends.  They were so unique.  Guess what I'm going to be doing with it???  ")  (Minori also received some of this from me.)
