Meanwhile, back in Paris...
CADOR PATISSERIE interior At a lovely small tea salon, Maison Cador Patisserie adjacent to the Louvre. I used to stay at Hotel de la Place du Louvre, and sometimes take petit dejeuner there.
CADOR PATISSERIE exterior across from the Louvre Cador sits on the corner of rue de Louvre and 2, rue Amiral de Coligny. The interior is in the style of Louis XVI, decorated with allegorical reliefs of love, Venus and cupid.
CADOR PATISSERIE'S perfect croissants pur beurreTheir croissants are perfection!CADOR PATISSERIE'S perfect eclairsCador's pastries are classic and perfect.
Their star gateaux:
Le Concord - dark chocolate with meringue
Le Petit Cador - chocolate ganache in an orange-flavored bisquit. MIAM!
An update on Cador:I'm very sad to report on my last visit,
I stopped by and noticed Cador was closed.
Total rennovation was taking place.
COJEAN has bought the space and opened a snack shop.

  5. Your painting is delicious! Went out to a tea house to celebrate Valentine's Day. Had a wonderful time-enjoyed the tiny tea sandwiches, the sweets and the scones. I had a wonerful Scottish breakfast tea-I love a hearty tea with a spot of cream-so satisfying!

  6. I'm beginning to think I should make "Vicarious virtual visits to Paris" CDs.
    Very low calorie and easy on the credit card, though you won't get any milage :)

    Love the painting. White on white with just a touch of color..Deceptively simple.
    Love the "Vicarious virtual visits to Paris" CDs Idea..What a hoot.. pop a CD in and go window shopping/drooling in Paris as many times as you'd like.. Talk about a Fantasy! ;-)

  10. This is where Carrie feasted in the penultimate episode of Sex and the City. I really want to visit Cador Patisserie. It seems like Laduree but a bit more 'old school' (if that is a phrase that can be applied to a Parisian establishment).

  11. It's much smaller than Laduree, l'embrouillamini and not a chain.
    It's somehow more authentic.
    I can't wait to go back...

  12. I have loved Patisserie Cador since I studied in Paris more than ten years ago. I was so sad to see it under renovation when I was there in April 2007. Does anyone know what happened?
