The Best Secret Location @ Paris



One of the best places that I've ever been in Paris (I've just made a return to the city after being there last winter in December 2010) and I've just realised it after 3 trips is actually having coffee with a view of everything! I didn't know about this place until during this recent trip where I had to visit Printemps and then i discovered this secret place...

It's a brasserie called Le Déli-Cieux. It's a roof garden self-service restaurant on top of the adjoining Printemps Beauty/Home store where you have to take a lift to the 8th story and then an escalator at the travel/luggage department to the roof top. Déli-Cieux simply means "deli under the sky". What a hidden gem!



The food is simple—sandwiches, snacks, coffee, tea, pastries and nothing fancy but if you're on a tight budget, you can still enjoy the 360° panoramic view for free! I had a cup of cappuccino there and it was great. I love the strong brew and with the cold breeze, a cuppa really does the trick. Or you can sip a glass of champagne here from 9.35am until 8pm and 10pm on Thursdays.



Spot the Eiffel Tower

The view from atop is just picturesque. I enjoyed every bit of the magnificent baroque and roman styled architectures. Paris is really a land of man-made architecture marvels. Just staring at the buildings is enough to make me fall in love with the city of love!



Although views from the terrace aren't as breathtaking as those from the Eiffel Tower or the Tour Montparnasse, they are equally interesting. It's like having a view with a closer perspective.



Fantastic view, beautiful breeze and it's FREE...

And after admiring such a wonder view, I embarked on my shopping journey before flying home the next morning. Guess where did I go? I found my way to Franklin D Roosevelt Metro station and walked down Avenue Montaigne where all my favourite stores are located. You'll find brands from Gucci at the start of the street to Paul & Joe at the end with Dior, Chanel, Pucci, Versace, Salvatore Ferragamo, Fendi and LV all in between. Shopping haven!



Ermm... they all are not mine!

Last winter in December 2011
What? Check your calendar.

There are all not mine
What kind of failed English is this??

You can waxed lyrically about your fine wine, your fine dining and your travels but bad grammar will punctuate your blog post like an out of tune note on a music sheet.
In this case, it started with a mis-key and ended with a flat note

Anon: I admit that i have grammatical errors in my posts or even typo but it's still my blog. It's me. I'm not perfect. If I am so good, I can be a novelist or a professional writer. I can be myself here and hey, it's not a newspaper or magazine. I don't need editors like you but I've to thank you for pointing out the errors. Well done! And if you feel that it's so terrible that it hurts your eyes just by reading my posts, you'll always have a choice.

hey anon.. why are you so anal? if you want perfect english, go read newspaper lah. but then again, i dont think you can depend on local newspapers either. maybe the herald tribune would do you justice...

btw, it's 'you can wax lyrical'. NOT 'waxed lyrically'.

make sure your own english is perfect before you criticize others.

anyway, eiling - made me reminisce abt my time there.. (-_-)

Beautiful. Never been there, only to the UK. Dunno if I'll ever get the chance... Sigh!!!

P.S. Gee! Some friend you have there! With a friend like that,who needs enemies? LOL!!! (On blogger.com, do you get to see the email? You can copy and search on Facebook...and you can get to see who he is.)

Sean said...

looks perfect for a sunny day! (will it be closed on rainy days or during winter? i'm thinking maybe) the view seems great too... high enough to still see everyone else's rooftops :D and sipping champagne at 10 a.m. ... i wish we malaysians were more like the french in that aspect, heheh

eiling lim said...

Anon 10:59 - Well said. Thanks. Paris is a nice city but the people are still snobbish.

Anon 1:01 - I can handle it! Thanks

Arthur Wee: Yeah who needs enemies when you have friends like this?!! haha... I have too many people disliking me.. lol

Sean: Yeah i wished people here do the same. Maybe the weather and atmosphere in Paris is so much better than our scorching sun. And looking at the scenery, I think our city is not that attractive. I think it's opened throughout the year as there is an indoor seating as well.

A very romantic place for me. I like the cruise.

I just discovered this blog post, and I will definitely go and have a coffee at the Deli-Cieux next week. Sounds like a great tip.

Thank you, and dodgy English be hanged!
