The Arab World Institute in the 5th arrondissement offers one of the best views of Paris, especially of Notre Dame and the bridges over the Seine. And how about that amazing blue-grey façade? Apparently the motifs are like apertures opening and closing to control the amount of light entering the building. Impressive, no?
I came across this cute little place on my way to work and after reading a little bit about it, I found out that kitsuné means little fox in Japanese. Awww! I knew I had to go try their Earl Grey and take some pictures. I mean, look how pretty:
Their oatmeal cookies are to-die-for, definitely the best I’ve had!

Stepping into this new tea room in Montreal’s Mile End is like being on the set of Downton Abbey. The mismatched tea cups and saucers are gorgeous, the vintage style armchairs and sofas are so inviting and that chandelier will definitely leave you bouche bée. All this to say the décor is absolutely flawless. The selection of teas is plentiful, and the food is delicious. We’ve tried the lavender Earl Grey which was a dream, and I also recommend pretty much all their sandwich selection. We haven’t tried any of the desserts, but that’s what next visits are for. I can’t tell you how giddy I am now that I’ve discovered this little gem!
