In summer: Bonpoint Tournon| Odeon
In winter: A priori Thé | 2nd arrondissement
The summer spot for an afternoon tea would definitely be the Bonpoint Tournon restaurant, located in a gorgeous old mansion next to the Odéon metro station. Located inside Bonpoint’s magnificent flagship store in the heart of Saint-Germain des Près area, this place is perfect for an afternoon tea with your children.
The setting is marvellous, with the terrace opening onto a beautiful garden where you can sip your tea in the shade of a huge chestnut tree while your children play
It’s also the ideal occasion to discover the beautiful store which sells the iconic Bonpoint brand!
As for my winter spot, it’d be A priori Thé, located inside the Galerie Vivienne, in the 2nd arrondissement. The food is excellent, fresh and home-made, and the brownies are quite simply a must-try. They are spectacular! The setting is so beautiful, in this old Parisian gallery that offers a moment of time travel! The place is child-friendly and close to a beautiful toy store, Si tu veux.
