Probably a lot too much of this activity was done in the City of Lights…
Cinéma Du Panthéon | Salon Du Thé
I actually lived next door to this hideaway before discovering it. The oldest existing cinema in Paris, this seemingly non-descript venue located on a small side street just off Place de la Sorbonne is a very popular Parisian haunt. Film buffs queue up like there was a red-carpet for the Latin Quarter’s premières of French and subtitled indie films. Aside from the film programming, the venue’s main highlight (in my opinion) is the salon du thé above the theatre. Designed and decorated by the wonderful icon Catherine Deneuve, this comfy, well-lit tearoom with a mini-terrace serves afternoon tea and a selection of very good salads and light mains. Try the café gourmand for an excellent caffeine hit and afternoon sugar rush!
