Montmartre - Paris Trip Part 4

My last afternoon took me to Montmartre as no visit to Paris is complete without a visit up to Montmartre.

I love to mingle in the hustle and bustle of the Place du Tertre with its cafes, restaurants and of course the wonderful artists!

One of the lovely artists at work.

In the evening I went for my favourite French Onion Soup, and my own home made version is based on this one shown below.
I always return to my hotel by walking down the Rue des Martyrs as it is full of lovely little florists.....
......and grocery shops.....
and......Pâtisserie Delmontel -  owned by Arnaud Delmontel and I believe he is the Pâtissier-Boulanger to the French President no less! And yes the cakes are every bit as good as they look :-) Sadly I did not get a chance to sample the green coconut domes but this HAS to be my favourite pâtisserie in Paris.
....and another pâtisserie...
and another delightful florist....the downside of being on a short trip is you have no need to buy any of the lovely goods on display...oh to live in Paris!
La vie est belle!
