Everyone should have a friend who knows the ins and outs of shopping for food in Paris, keeps a private list of secret neighborhood bistros and can let you in on mysterious French traditions such as why Parisians never buy croissants in the afternoon.

Just a quick email to thank you for our itinerary. We had a truly wonderful day on Saturday, and it was definitely one of the highlights of our trip.
Your itinerary followed our requests to the letter, from the great people watching at the breakfast cafe to the wonderful traditional bistro meal in the evening. We thoroughly enjoyed exploring the shops you recommended and came back laden with cheese, macaroons, saucisson, oil etc, ruing the fact that our food shops in London aren't a patch on Paris! (Whoever thought of vacuum packing pungent cheese for transport in a suitcase was a genius.) La Cremerie was a wonderful find - the sort of place we would never have discovered, and then would probably have wandered past, but didn't actually want to leave. Despite the prices, La Grande Epicerie had perhaps the greatest array of food we'd ever seen. They stocked far greater ranges of some English products than we get here... Le Voltaire was the perfect way to wind it all off, with fabulous food and impeccable service. All in all, we saw a side of Paris that was a far cry from the crowds at the Louvre and Eiffel Tower, and can't wait to visit again."
