We stopped in to get gifts to bring home for Christmas. After a few samples we ended up getting gifts for ourselves as well. The staff were very helpful and accommodating of our attempts at French even though they spoke English.

Opera / Bourse
The neighbourhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle
époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades,
and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here,
modern day workers continue to take advantage of the
legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th
century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theatres, and
cinemas sit side by side with French bistros
predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in
