Paris - Heavenly Olive Oils @ Oliviers&Co


I visited, I tasted, I groaned with pleasure, I purchased a bottle to bring home! Yep, that's what happened when I stumbled into this exquisite Olive Oil Boutique in Paris France, Oliviers&Co.

I first entered this adorable store in Bercy Village of Paris and I was shocked to discover they had an incredible variety of delicious, gourmet olive oils from all over the world. A true olive oil heaven! Grands Crus Exceptionnels (very rare), Grand Crus, Premier Crus and Second Crus. Who knew there were so many categories in olive oils!

Some of the oils Oliviers&Co carries, are imported from famous oil producing areas like Toscana and Sicily in Italy; Others come from Southern France, from Aix-en-Provence, Alpes de Haute Provence and AOC Provence. They even carry oils from exotic Tunisia and Croatia.

I'm telling you, there's something for everyone in this adorable olive oil boutique - They also have olive oil crackers; Flavored oils like mandarin, pepper, basil, lemon or mint olive oils, Yum! (I purchased the Basil flavored oil and it was truly amazing!). The shop also sells vegetable pates, aged Balsamic Vinegars, Truffle oils, ragout sauces like Pesto, Puttanesca and Pepperoni, Exotic herbs and Salts, Sweet and Salty flavored biscuits and Olive oil based beauty products. Did I mention their truffles? (groan...)

Paris - The Chamade Cafe


There a Brasserie near our layover hotel that serves "quality food" for a Pris-Fixe of $27 Euros. This is the fixed priced menu that includes several courses and beverages. The name of this wonderful place is the Chamade Cafe which is located on 42 Bis, Avenue De Suffren, just steps away from our layover hotel.

The Chamande Cafe is probably a perfect dinner destination choice for an occasion when you don't feel like venturing out too far from the hotel while in Paris, but you wish to eat well for a decent price.

This recommendation comes from CC and Diane Donahue, both DC based Flight attendants with extensive experience in Paris. Diane was based in Paris for many years, so I feel, we can trust her judgement on this. Thanks ladies! I can't wait to try it! The place sure looks (sounds) enticing!

The Chamande Cafe
is open daily from 8am to 11pm and their telephone number is:

42 BIS, Avenue de Suffren
75015 Paris
