Paris: Favorite Post-Shopping Café
By Theadora Brack
Guys and dolls, I have a new favorite post-shopping hotspot in Paris. So hold the dresses! And grab a pencil.
Located in between Gare Saint-Lazare and Printemps Homme, I stumbled upon the historic Triadou during a recent shopping spree with my sister.
Open since 1935, the family-run Triadou wildly surpassed our expectations. Blame the stormy skies, friendly table service, and the catbird seats near the train station, but the experience was a knockout win-grin.
So what to order?
I’m now hooked on the café’s Baguette Jambon Beurre Emmental (ham, butter and Emmental cheese). The substantial sandwich cost just €5, and we sliced it down the middle.
I also recommend ordering a piping-hot café latte. Topped with a thick layer of foamy cream, it’s served with a chunk of divine dark chocolate.
Here’s another tip! If the weather is on your side, dine outdoors. The Triadou’s terrace with its neon lights, iconic cane chairs, and outdoors heaters is a prime people-watching spot. Talk about a moveable feast!
