While we were in Paris we decided to become macaroon experts. We went to a class to learn to make macaroons and sampled them everywhere we went. My husband found Carette's 20+ years ago so we knew they were good. We didn't know if they...More

This is one of those ‘must visit’ places, sitting in the sunshine, overlooking the Trocadero and the Eiffel Tower, drinking tea and eating delicious pastries. The staff are friendly and efficient – everything is done with the taste and style that is Paris.

Right on the Trocadero circle, this place has lovely outdoor seating with a view of the circle. Lunch was delicious, but the highlight is their tea with macarons. Cross the circle for a wonderful view of the Eiffel tower.

Close to the lovely view of the Eiffel tower from the Trocadero, lies this classic café, where you can buy lighter meals and delicious pasties. As with many other places in Paris, it isn't cheap exactly, but the service is excellent and the tartes to...More

Le chocolat carette (hot chocolate) will go down as my all time favorite hot chocolate ( and I have had great ones) and one of the best things I have had in Paris.

This is the neighbourhood of grand and impressive
Haussmann-designed apartments and buildings. National
museums overlook the Eiffel Tower and embassies fill
the avenues and streets. Locals head to the butcher,
florist, or bakery on their daily rounds amidst luxury
and splendour, all with a view over Paris and its most
famous tower. Snuggled in between the grand buildings
are small art galleries and homes of historical

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
How long does a typical cafe breakfast last in Paris? We need to meet our tour group at the Architecture Museum (just across the circle) at 8:30am. If we arrived at Carette at 7:30am (opening time on Sundays) would there be enough time? We'd need to have our bill paid and exit the restaurant by 8:20am - so 50 minutes total - is that feasible?

They do not take reservations. It is a café, so it is not needed.
My husband and I are interested in your double room. We will have our 2 year old daughter with us and will need a cot for her. Can we fit a cot in a double room and do you have cots available?
