Travelling to Paris alone might be something you’ve always wanted to do. Or maybe it’s your only option. Corralling your friends into a girls’ vacation simply can be difficult, and your partner’s work schedule is out of whack. Things like weddings, honeymoons, work life and cash and, sorry to say, a difficult pal can get in the way. TBH, walking the streets of Paris, without having a girlfriend complain about jet lag, the price of the Euro or whatever, is pretty sweet. (Although shopping the sales at Galeries Lafayette with the right friend or strolling along Parisian streets hand-in-hand with my love are pretty good, too.) Here are our top picks for enjoying Paris on your own.
Lunch for yourself
Breakfast is covered. A pastry-coffee room service order is a must. And so is visiting your nearby café. But lunch, lunch can be very isolating if you’re on your own. The adorable little spot Eggs, Milk & Flour is the brainchild of Oh Mon Cake!! founder and pastry chef Léonora Gallon-Frantz. Her delish crêpes and galettes are all made from organic and local ingredients. Aside from the Instagram-worthy décor and patio, the setup is very fitting for a single diner with its high-top tables. The absolute best part? It’s on Rue St. Honoré, a must-see shopping area that might bore your SO or instigate complaints from a cheapie friend. So hit up the shops, from the OG Chanel store on Rue Cambon and the fashion insider’s haven Colette, before or after lunch.
