The Super-Chic Marais USA Guide to Paris

Key to the City BY olivia seely 03/20/2014

When Haley Boyd was bopping around Paris the summer after her freshman year of college, inspiration struck in a big way: She decided to drop everything and start a shoe line, Marais USA, rooted in her fave ‘hood there. Check out four of the spots she just can’t get enough of when she heads back to the City of Lights.

"Its such a beatiful and calming haven and I am addicted to their waterlemon juice at breakfast. They also have Marmite, which I have a weakness for."

Rose Bakery
“The baked goods and salads here are incredible, and they sell fresh produce and juices. It’s the perfect little café-slash-grocer to stop in for picnic supplies, especially since it’s so hard to get a table. Spreading out in the park is definitely a Parisian thing to do—and being able to enjoy alcohol outdoors is such a luxury for us Americans!”
(30 Rue Debelleyme)

Porte de Vanves
“This is a fun flea market to hit up on the weekend mornings. It’s not huge and overwhelming, but there is a good assortment of housewares, art, junk, and clothing. Most of the dealers don’t speak much English, so this is a good opportunity to practice your French. I’ve found some awesome vintage inspirations for our collections here. If you’re really into flea markets, the Clignancourt is the big one for serious collectors—basically the equivalent to Portobello Road in London.”
(Avenue Georges Lafenestre)

La Perle
“It isn’t hard to find a cute sidewalk cafe to sip wine and people watch, but my favorite is La Perle. The wine is great, it’s super affordable, and it’s a very typically French spot. Good place to meet people, too!”
(78 Rue Vieille du Temple)
