Paris Eats - Oh Mon Cake!

In an effort to avoid the millions and millions of people taking advantage of les soldes on the rue de Rivoli, Copain and I took the rue Saint Honoré on our way to la Madeleine on Saturday (he got to pick up his new watch, a gift from his maman and papa for his 30th birthday). 

I'd heard of the rue Saint Honoré, but never really paid attention to whether I was taking that particular street or not (sometimes I wander without paying much attention).  Saturday, however, I was VERY aware that I was on the rue Saint Honoré - fur coats, designer It-bags, fancy cars - it was like the back street version of La Croisette - great for people watching even if you can't afford anything!

Just as I was starting to get a bit hungry, and just as I began planning my request to stop for a crêpe somewhere, I looked to my right and saw Oh Mon Cake! Did you just say cake? Um, yes, don't mind if I do! Thankfully, Copain was on board for a cake adventure, so we stopped in to try it out.

How cute is this place?

The minute I saw carrot cake in the window, I knew it had to be mine. Behold my (okay, our) carrot cake and latte:

Lower right hand corner - carrot cake alert.

Notice the thick frosting - I told Copain to lay off! 6 Euros of happiness.

The ambiance was cozy and modern, and they had a little room upstairs with couches and armchairs for catching up with friends over something sweet and a cup of jo. My only complaint was that the latte we ordered was really not that great - I think it was made with drip coffee instead of espresso. Other than that, I was in hog heaven.

I loved the cute details like the flamingo wall paper, and the toilettes were brand-spanking new with violet hand soap - a very nice touch I might add :-) They'd also thought of little extras like adding agave syrup to the other sweeteners being offered. The service was friendly and fast - I will certainly be going back.

When are you not in the mood for cake?!  (They do lunches too!) Head on over:
