Paris for 10 days -- staying in the 3rd near Bastille -- need recommendaions

NWPeter | | Sep 2, 2009 01:20 PM

First, thank you 'hounds for your generous advice and recommendations. Next month, we're staying in an apartment just north of Place des Vosges. We've spent a fair amount of time in Paris before, but have always stayed in the 5th and 6th, and have pretty much just eaten in those areas. So, this time we're going to explore the right bank restaurants. As you can tell from my list of possibles, we are not looking for anything fancy or too expensive, just solid cooking in convivial rooms.

But, first, we need a recommendation on where to start the day. Is there a cafe nearby with excellent expresso and croissants, brioche, etc., etc.??

Here's the list so far. Any obvious ones to eliminate? The ones with the star in front are ones we're leaning to right now. One thing we are looking for is to balance out the 10 days -- we aren't looking for 10 straight days of bistro, bistro, bistro. . .. That is why Shan Gout and the cous cous places and wine bars are included. Also, we would love to have a meal in a beautiful room but it looks like all the brasseries have been institutionalized and are now mediocre. Hence, the inclusion of Le Train Bleu (which we have been to before and loved). And, please, feel free to offer additional recommendations.
