Butte aux Cailles neighborhood
Print Leave a comment
The Butte aux Cailles neighborhood is a maze of nice hilly streets to walk around. Little alleys look darling with their lampposts. Around every corner is a new sight of graffiti, done in artistic style, very pleasing to the eye! There is a delicious patisserie (without seating) where Rue Barrault meets Boulevard Auguste Blanqui- the pain au chocolat is perfection! Along Boulevard Auguste Blanqui is a sweet church called Saint Rosalie. Go inside and light a candle. At Place d'Italie there is a garden in the middle of the roundabout, Jardin Francoise Giroud, where people hang out and watch the goings on. On the south end of Place d'Italie is an indoor mall called Italie Deux. It has an upstairs terrace with restaurants.
The Butte aux Cailles neighborhood is where Le Monde has its offices. After work, young professional people hang out in the bars and sit outside at the brasseries on Rue de la Butte aux Cailles. It's a very cool scene!
We enjoyed a delicious casual meal where you pay at the counter at French Cantine Paris, which is very cute inside.
It is a fifteen minute walk to a gorgeous park, Parc Montsouris.
