Why we Love Paris in August

August in Paris is the only time of the year where you really feel like you have the City of Light all to yourself. The Parisians pack up their bikinis, kids, and dogs, and head to the countryside or down south to the beach. Many restauranteurs and most boulangeries close up for the month, leaving a few select choices for us to enjoy, ultimately making our decision of where to eat out next much easier! Some people are reluctant to spend their summer holiday in Paris during August, and we can understand why......

SFP's Favorite "no reservation" Restaurants in Paris

In this ever evolving city of light, food and dining out are experiences that the Parisians give high importance to, and we are totally in agreement with that! Of the thousands of restaurants located in Paris, many can be reserved in advance, but equally as many are “walk-ins” with no possibility to reserve. It can definitely be a pain having to queue up for restaurants, hoping to get in for the evening, and truth be told, sometimes you are turned away and have to try your luck another day. However, some of......

Hanukkah in Paris

Even though France is now a secular country and prides itself on laïcité (“freedom of conscience”), it has a long history of Roman Catholicism before the French Revolution got rid of a national religion. This means that while there is no official state religion, the majority of its citizens are Catholic, and thus holidays such as Christmas and Easter are celebrated very publicly, with special lights, giant Christmas trees (sapin in French), and Christmas-themed window and building dressings. What you may not know, though, is that France has the third largest Jewish population in the world (after......

The best part is being able to tuck into some of the delicious and warming foods. Goodbye to picnics and hello to homemade soups!  ...

The Parisian Doughnut

There is no shortage of sweets and pastries here in Paris. Macarons, eclairs, caramel au beurre salé, crème Chantilly and so much more, are staples of French culture and culinary traditions. But now that the coffee scene in Paris is thriving, there is nothing more perfect for my American palate than a decadent doughnut to pair with that perfect cup of coffee! Luckily for me and my sweet tooth, a few fabulous Americans have tapped the doughnut market and have recently started selling their doughy creations throughout the city. Amanda of Boneshaker......
