Carette, Paris









A beautiful place, filled with delectable sweets and an inviting ambiance.

I'm sorry. I simply had to share this beautiful place with you... If you're prone to sweet cravings, cravings of beautiful environments and Paris, my apologies— this post will only trigger those desires! Carette, notably known for their extensive and wonderful teas and treats, is located in the amazing Place des Vosges, Paris. Exquisitely decorated by Hubert de Givenchy. How lovely it would be to sit outside and enjoy some of these wonderful creations, don't you think?
