Paris Take Away Food at Le Petit Flottes is a Perfect Fall Picnic in the Making

tuilleriesOften when in the City of Light, I long for a great Paris take away food spot where I can quickly pick up something healthy and fresh. Picnics are almost done for the year now, but there are still a few days where it’s lovely to sit outside for impromptu dining en plein air. Le Petit Flottes is one stop shopping for a last-minute soiree.

DSC_0102Bistro Flottes has a combination epicerie (grocery store) and casse-croûte (snack shop) next door called Le Petit Flottes. It is filled with loads of options for food-to-go that is easy to grab and stroll over to the Jardin des Tuileries located just steps away. They stock ready-made sandwiches, soups, hot dishes, quiches, salads, smoothies, fresh fruit, fruit cups, yogurt and desserts. The pastries are made fresh daily with organic ingredients. For those who want to spice it up a bit, they also sell bottles of wine, champagne and limoncello.

In a hurry and forgot to bring a blanket to sit on? You can dine at a table in the shop or outside on the street bistro style. In any event, the store is full of cute souvenirs and gourmet treats to share with friends back home. Bon appétit!
