Book review: Sundays* in Paris

Words by Leah White

Local secrets.

Historically, much of Paris has always been shut on Sundays. While times have somewhat changed, travellers can still be confronted with closed shopfronts and cafes come the weekend.

Sundays* in Paris is a guide to the bustling pockets of activity, so you need never go without your next pastry or hunk of delicious Parisian cheese – even on the quietest of Sundays.

The introductory chapter succinctly outlines the highlights and key sights in each of the city’s 20 arrondissements. It’s then broken into chapters including Coffee, Brunch, Dinner + Drinks, Cultural Attractions, Gardens + Outdoor Spots, Markets, Foodie Stops and Shopping.

As a Melburnian who’s struggled to find a decent cup of coffee in Paris, the chapter on the city’s coffee culture was a welcome sight. It seems quality caffeine options are plentiful, if you know where to look.
