There is nothing like spring in Paris, and I made sure to take advantage of the beautiful weather to go sight see with my little cousin. Our day started near Louvre, where we met and grabbed a bite to eat in one of the nearby restaurants with the best view of the museum. My friend, Théophile, joined us and was kind enough to share some hidden gems only locals knew about. Théophile, is an art and museum buff, and shares many of the most beautiful secret spots across France on his Instagram.
We started by visiting Le Café Marly where I grabbed some of the most delicious salmon tartar, mashed potatoes, and freshly squeezed carrot and orange juice. This place is perfect to visit for an amazing lunch, cup of coffee, or a cocktail, and it offers some of the most beautiful views of Louvre.

From there we continued to La Pyramide Inversée, and took a stroll around Jardin des Tuileries.

We followed with Le Palais Royal and a shopping trip on Rue Saint Honoré. Tip* for some vintage gems make sure to wander to Espace Kiliwatch.
