Hotel CostesHotel Costes with its delightful courtyard, THE place for not only late night dinners but also for a tea time break in the afternoon. With the antique statues overlooking from the French balconies, salmon coloured walls..and the green plants..I really don’t feel like I’m in Paris…but rather in Rome or another city in Italy. Met up with Parisbreakfast not long ago who insisted we should try the tea from TeaForté she had been offered to review. I had never heard about this elegant pyramid shaped infuser, so pourquoi pas? As I wanted to revive my memories from Provence I opted for the one with organic Lemon and Lavender, a great choice! However, as it was very warm outside that afternoon I really needed something to cool down with….on their dessert menu I found to my delightness that they had yaourt glacée which I wasn’t late to order (by experience they have always been none left when I’ve wanted to order it during my previous visits).

Have you signed up for Paris Maps yet? I fell in love with this one, not because of my hands holding the ice cream cones but because I see it as an homage to Ile Saint-Louis I bet most visited place, Berthillon ;-)
Hotel CostesDessert was also on the menu, ofcourse. Parisbreakfast tried one of my favourites, the Trifle fruit rouges… Hotel Costes
While I finally got to have my frozen yoghurt! How many times haven’t I been here for dinner and wanted to have the yaourt glacée thats always been finished? This time I was lucky, and it was not only delicious but also very refreshing…

    We always stay at Costes on our weekend trips to Paris. Jacques Garcia has done an excellent job..Their desserts are always a nice treat, my favourite ones: the pavlova and the trifle!
