l'église de la Madeleine

If you've been shopping around Place de la Madeleine and need a place to recharge, descend to The Counter at Fauchon where you can have a light meal at the bar in an air-conditioned room. Prices are medium-high but the food quality is good. While you wait for your order, check out their collection of pricey wine and spirits. Afterward, head back upstairs to purchase gourmet gifts to bring home.

Oh la la, it has been great reading about your trip to Paris, especially since I am going a week from Friday. I especially liked reading about the shops. Can't wait to go to the fabric store with six levels. Sounds like you had a great time. Taylor
