Rue des Martyrs, yummy!

Thanks to my "culture theme" class, I finally pursuaded myself to walk along the long long Rue des Martyrs to discover this "boboland". The Rue des Martyrs starts at the Notre-Dame-de-Lorette Church and ends near the Rue Yvonne Le Tac. Like most of the streets at Montmartre, Rue des Martyrs is steep. I started from its upper part since it's close to my home, and walked down until the end. The upper part seems more bohemian, loud and crowded, probably because it's close to Sacré Coeur. (ah! les touristes!) The lower you go, the more hungry you will be. Lower Martyrs is full of pastisserie, boulangerie, boucherie, etc. (attention! almost all of the boulangerie here has won some big prize, such as the best baguette in Paris in 2007, the best chocolate éclair, the best chocolate, the best english puff... bref, everything here used to be and still is one of the best in its own field)

I spent two hours in the café inside the Hôtel Amour (8 Rue de Navarin) and had a great time watching people come and by and observing their outfits.

After I came back, I sorted the photos into several groups.

1. People

Parisian chic or bobo style?

2. Stores

Love the reflection in the window

proud shop owner.

 The famous Arnaud DELMONTEL!! one of the best boulangeries in Paris

 I really don't get the point of putting three Eiffel Towers here as decoration. 

I do like this sort of deco better.

 Actually it's the eyes who are eating the pastries..
Do you know you can present fruits like this?

4. Hôtel Amour

café bourgeois, for sure.
