Bonheur at the Bonpoint Café

Two weeks ago, when we had a few days of excellent weather, Little Miss and I joined some fellow mommy friends for a morning juice at Nanashi, the restaurant in the Bonpoint flagship boutique.

There wasn’t a soul and we installed ourselves at this table in the courtyard terrace. The sun was out, the breeze was soft and gentle, the sounds of the street were far away — in fact the only sound we heard was the sweet chirping of the birds, in short, it was pure bliss.

It was fantastic to be in a place where they actually helped to carry in your stroller and vintage high-chairs were at the ready. As lunchtime approached, the gorgeous terrace slowly filled with chic Parisian children and their even chic-er Mamas.

Kaori Endo, previously at Rose Bakery 1 and 2, is the chef behind Nanashi, which means “without name.” The menu is healthy, organic and obviously very Japanese-inspired. With petit pots of purées available for little stomachs, I don’t think it will be long before we come back — all we need now is another few days of nice weather so we can occupy the terrace again!

On our way back to the métro after the café, Little Miss and I spotted this tree across from the Eglise St. Sulpice. A nice reminder that Spring is here and Paris is abloom!
