Aux Pipalottes Gourmandes
A clever deli that has made room for eating, as well as gastronomic consumerism, Aux Pipalottes Gourmandes is high on the list of excellent traiteurs and bakeries that make this corner of the 9ème arrondissement such a foodie destination. You can sample the goods at one of seven tables in the middle of the room, surrounded by shelves of attractively packaged foodstuffs, or perched outside on the pavement. The deli counter at the front is heaving with freshly made delectables, from ever-popular nems to classic vegetable terrine. It’s such a hit with locals, who tend to accompany their snacking with carefully selected bottle of wine that you can even book. Be warned: it’s almost impossible to resist buying the entire contents of the shop on your way out.
