Ramping Up Pastry at Colorova

With the opening of this salon-de-thé meets pâtisserie in August, the left bank got a lot more interesting. Graduates of Ferrandi cooking school, Charlotte Siles and Guillaume Gil sought to create a contemporary environment where gourmands of every age could protract the experience of tucking into a time-tested French treat - no need to rush out the door after purchasing that tarte au citron, you can cozy up with a book (or laptop, as it were) and enjoy your sinful snack with an espresso or cup of tea.

When it came to designing the space, the couple took cues from Charlotte's itinerant childhood, hewing to exotic decorative pieces, unique furnishings and a vibrant color palette to accent the white walls. That alone sets it apart from most tea salons.

But the duo took it a step further, offering a market-fresh savory menu for lunch and brunch that is out of this world.

So while most of what reigns cool in Paris is still situated rive droite, Colorova’s masterful mix of haute pâtisserie and design makes for one worthy reason to cross the river.

A pause-café in Paris

if you’re feeling in need of refreshment, one of the nicest pâtisseries in Paris is just around the corner: walk west, crossing over the boulevard Raspail, to rue Notre Dame des Champs, then turn right and walk north to where the street turns west and becomes rue de Vaugirard. Colorova Pâtisserie is at the corner of rue de l’Abbé Grégoire; stop there for pastries as delicious as they are pretty, and since it's also a salon de thé, there's room for you to stay and have something to drink with your treat. (They are also open for breakfast and lunch/brunch.)
