Imagine you are in a room of jams and jellies. Literally jams from wall to wall. Any combination of flavors you can think of. Unlimited taste tests. Sound like heaven? Get yourself to the Chambre aux Confitures on rue Esquermoise.
This is one of my very favorite places to stop when I’m looking for a gift for a foodie friend or when I’m just taking a newcomer to Lille on a food tour of the city. The combinations of flavors in their jams are unreal - I recently bought a cognac, fig, and walnut jam for my parents – and I never knew you could mix so many different aromas with honey!
Definitely stop in for a taste or two or three…you won’t leave empty handed (especially if you try the lavender honey or the dark chocolate and banana sauce).
