Le Sevigné (In Le Marais)

le sevigne.jpgIn a busy and sometimes suffocating area like the Marais, space and relaxation are often just what is needed after a morning of rummaging through the district’s vintage boutiques. It is often difficult to find a café that is not brimming with people during the lunchtime rush.

However, in this case, the philosophy of ‘wandering off the beaten track’ is especially rewarding. Located at the top of Rue Payenne, the quaint café is located at close proximity to the Square Georges Cain. Inside, the decor is classic and the staff are friendly and accommodating. At lunchtime, streams of regulars arrive and choose the plat du jour without looking at the menu – a sign that their reputation precedes them. One immediately knows that Le Sevigné is about community as much as welcoming in new customers.

Why not top an afternoon of reading in the Square Georges Cain with a café allongé at Le Sevigne? With seats outside, it is easy to slip away into a daydream as busy lives rush past and disappear into the winding streets and passageways. The area is perfect for wandering around, and the shops on the nearby Rue des Francs-Bourgeois are undoubtedly tempting, especially for trend-setters.

    [...] Hôtel Carnavalet. Le musée Carnavalet was once the home of Madame de Sévigné, a prolific letter writer of the French aristocracy in the 17th century that was known to be the most beautiful woman in Paris.  In its courtyard stands a statue of Louis XIV, and its exterior has carvings of masks on the upper facade, as Madame de Sévigné hosted carnival parties for her friends and the French aristocracy in Paris affiliated with the King’s court.  Entrance to the museum is free.  It houses over 2,600 pieces of art, including collections from Madame de Sévigné.  The museum has other important historical objects, including toiletries of Napoleon, and personal effects belonging to Marie Antoinette.  The paintings and objects are interesting in depicting life and historical events before and after the French Revolution.  Around the corner is a nice little restaurant, Le Sevigné .  [...]
