Mamie Gâteaux: snack time just behind the Bon Marché

After leaving the Bon Marché and before attacking the cute shops on Rue du Cherche-Midi, we suggest a break at Mamie Gâteaux for either your sweet or savory cravings. There is a small flea market at the entrance to the kitchen and the tea set warmly welcomes girls unflinchingly strollers and satisfies any type of hunger throughout the day.

The Décor
In the heart of the sixth arrondissement, 300 meters from the Bon Marché, a lunch or snack break is needed after a shopping spree. There is no where else like this rustic-inspired spot with plates on the walls, wooden tables, and flea-market finds.

The Food
People come for a getaway, for a light lunch of savory pie, a vegetable crumble or a salad and after it is difficult not to succumb to sweet temptations that tease you from the window. Here, no pink cupcakes, macaroons, or tarts, the pastries from the kitchen regale you with their homemade recipes all made with authentic and 100% pure butter: walnut fondant pie drizzled with maple syrup, creamy carrot cake, chestnut cake and do not forget to try their specialties: cream puffs, fig tarts, and almond tarts. All accompanied by fine teas by Chez Dammann.

For Kids
This spot welcomes young and future moms of the area, who love to find an hour for tea and to warm up, to discuss life’s great questions, or give the baby a bottle.

We Love..
… to hang out here after the lunch rush with a book and a cup of coffee, while the baby plays quietly. An ideal place to frequent during maternity leave.
