Midtown boutique Le Petit Paris has always been one of my favorite spots for a unique birthday or housewarming gift. One friend got a lovely Lagouile knife set I should have bought two of - so I could have kept one for myself.
Now, the boutique is also a cafe with delectable soups, a full espresso bar with French pressed coffee, wines, beers and a dessert case filled with mouthwatering creations like profiteroles, creme brulees and macarons.
I opted for a tartine with ham, brie and fig jam for just $5.95. I'll stop in for a breakfast of yogurt and granola soon, after a chocolate croissant appetizer of course.
