paris: st. germain, l'avant comptoir crêpes, jardin du luxemburg

One of the main reasons I love reading other blogs, and why I started my own, is that you can discover new places, experiences, books, restaurants, food, and endless other things that you may not have otherwise.

The lovely Margo writes a wonderful travel blog, and when she wrote a post about Paris and suggested the little takeaway crêperie in St. Germain, it was a no brainer. We made a beeline for this tiny little place (next to the proper L'Avant Comptoir restaurant) and grabbed two huge crêpes to go. I went for the day's special - chicken, artichoke, egg, cheese and rocket, and it was so good! For only 6 euros, it was a bargain too.

We enjoyed them in the beautiful Jardin du Luxemburg a short walk away, where there was a live band playing popular tunes and the sun shone (for most of the time!).

I highly recommend this little lunch break idea - budget friendly, very pretty and quite romantic!
