Paris is known for its quaint cafes and delicious desserts, and at Le Square Trousseau you get them both. It’s an out of the way cafe that isn’t touristy in the least. You can have all the benefits of a typical French cafe without all of the tourists.
If you are traveling with children this is a great place because as you can see from the pics below, the cafe sits directly in front of a playground so your kids can run around while you sit and relax.
Sorry that I can’t remember what dessert I had, but it was delicious and if you go there and show them this picture, they will be able to help you.
That’s me and my friend Felicia, she’s the one who hipped me to this spot. Isn’t she beautiful? Check out her blog which is almost as fabulous as she is.
The view from the cafe. You can’t see the whole playground because the trees are in the way, but you can definitely hear the kids playing which is a lovely sound.
So how do you get here? Take metro line 8 and exit Ledru-Rollin, walk towards Nation and on the right hand side you will see Rue Antoine Vollon. Walk down the street until you get to the cafe on the right hand side.
I hope you check it out, I don’t think you will be disappointed!
