Seeking good markets, specialty shops, boulangeries, patisseries, etc in 3rd...& ? about Easter Candy...

I will be off to Paris tommorrow night for the week with my husband, my 15 year old daughter and will be 7 1/2 year old son in tow. We are renting an apartment for one week in the 3rd...Metro-Arts et Metiers.

The winter has run away from me...due to a variety of surgeries and other unforeseen events...and I can't believe we are leaving tomorrow...

Back in January I had posted for restaurant suggestions for restaurants and Chowhounds came through with some great ideas...we are planning on making our lunch the main meal of the day...we have ressies at Frenchie, Bastide Odeon, Le Souffle...(for fun), we have ressies for the Restaurant at Versaille for Sunday lunch when we go...Le Flotille? (sp). We don't have ressies -since they don't take...but also plan on trying Cafe Constant and Breizh Cafe. I keep going back and forth with Bofinger...

anyway...right now I'm hoping that there may be a couple of good suggestions for good places to get coffee, and bread and cheese and maybe juice and bread and jam...staple type items and also perhaps just some special places to check out in our neighborhood...

(I see that there are several posts requesting similar info regarding baquettes, and markets and I do intend to read them all...just wondering anything walkable near us...Metro...Arts et Metier that we shouldn't miss...

Also as we are moving close to Easter...I thought it would be fun for the kids (and me :-) to pick up some Easter Candy...curious about the similarities and differences...(I know that the "Bunny" does't come in France...but the bells fly in from Rome???

...either way I'd love to see some of their Easter Displays and bring some candy back...so if anyone has any suggestions....Please, Please pass them on...

(Also although I have my restaurants under control...I'm always willing to consider others...if there is something I missed I should consider...:-) Thanks....
