    Proxi Market: groceries late hours nice choice proxi

    by gwened Written Feb 23, 2014

    In my new neck of the woods we have a Proxi grocery store supermarket which is very nice,and provides many other services such as clothing pressing. We use it often for convenience last minute needs.

    Now in my latest hunt in Paris, walking leisurely in the evening on bd Saint Michel found myself with a Proxi there too. The stores had a wonderful display of fruits and vegetables and loaded. Convenient times as usually open very late to 01h00.

    Something tothink about when renting in paris and needed those wonderful grocery items. And rest assured it is good, part of the group Carrefour.

    What to buy: groceries are food items, paper cups/plates/utencils, paper towels etc all needed for a dinner or lunch day

    What to pay: convenience prices but reasonable.

    Ave des Champs Elysees: Need a new car?

    by Maryimelda Written Dec 15, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is one of those "only in my dreams" type showrooms which my son drooled over when we were in Paris in September, 2013. A little out of our price range but there must be a market for these cars or else they wouldn't be making them and selling them on the Champs Elysees. We didn't ask about prices as we knew that was a sure sign to the proprietors that we couldn't afford any of them.

    What to buy: Cars, although not necessarily the ones in which you drive the kids to school.

    What to pay: The sky's the limit.

    Christmas Market at Saint Lazare: For your December shopping

    by pieter_jan_v Updated Jul 18, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I happened to be in Paris in mid-December and after leaving the Saint Lazare train station I could not go around the Christmas market at the station square.

    The traditional wooden stalls, like I know them from Germany created a cosy atmosphere.

    What to buy: A quick snack or some fun Christmas gift.

    Paris Expo: Foire de Paris

    by Nemorino Updated May 18, 2013

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a commercial fair that has been held in Paris every year since 1904. It takes place during the last week of April and the first half of May (which means that hotel prices go way up during these weeks, at least in the southern half of Paris).

    At the fair in 2013 there were 1,829 exhibitors divided into three main groups: the home, cultures of the world and well-being/leisure.

    Even though I am a notorious non-consumer, I decided to go and see what all the fuss was about. Before leaving home, I booked a ticket online at, to avoid standing in line to get a ticket. The ticket cost twelve Euros and was valid for one admission on any day of the fair.

    As in any big fair (like the Frankfurt Book Fair, which I attended for thirty-four consecutive years), there are so many exhibits that no one person can hope to see them all. So you just wander around and take pot-luck, or if you are better organized than I am you can study the maps and find the locations of the exhibits that interest you.

    Out of the eight exhibition halls at “Paris Expo”, the Paris fairgrounds at Porte de Versailles, six were in use for the fair in April and May 2013.

    Over 200 shows, conferences and events are held at Paris Expo each year, with about 6 million visitors. Paris Expo is said to be the fourth largest venue for trade fairs in Europe. The largest is the Köln Messe in Cologne, Germany, followed by Geneva Palexpo in Geneva, Switzerland and the Expocentre Fairgrounds in Moscow, Russia.

    Milk: No more Milk at the Panthéon

    by Nemorino Updated May 13, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Update 2013: At one time there were seven large “Milk” cybercafés in Paris, but apparently only three of them are still in operation as of 2013. These are the ones at Opéra (28, rue du 4 Septembre), Les Halles (31, Boulevard Sebastopol) and Montparnasse (5, rue d’Odessa).

    The one in the photo, at 17 Rue Soufflot near the Panthéon, has unfortunately closed down.

    Here is what I wrote about this particular “Milk” cybercafé in 2011:

    Despite the name, this is not a place where you can buy dairy products. Rather it is a clean, pleasant internet café where you can “surf, work, eat and play” (as it says in English over the door) twenty-four hours a day on one hundred computers.

    Ninety-seven of these computers have French keyboards, but the other three (the ones that are visible in the front window) have English keyboards, which are much more convenient for us non-French people.

    (Actually I’m accustomed to using a German keyboard, but the differences between the German and English ones are minimal: the x and y are reversed and the punctuation marks are in different places, and some symbols like @ are on different keys. But that’s nothing compared to the muddle I get into when I try to use a French keyboard.)

    There are two Vélib’ stations nearby, namely 5006 and 5003. These are both Vélib’ Plus stations, meaning they are at a slightly higher elevation than the rest of the city, so you are credited with an extra fifteen minutes if you ride up from a lower station.

    Second photo: Cyclist crossing rue Soufflot.

    Third photo: The old Milk cybercafé on Rue Soufflot, all boarded up in 2012.

    Fourth photo: In May 2013 the “Milk” cybercafé at 5, rue d’Odessa in Montparnasse was still open for business with 60 computers available 24/7. It is in a nice old stone building in the Hausmannian style, with the typical cast iron grates in front of the full-length windows on the first floor. The Vélib’ station 14127 is conveniently located directly in front of this cybercafé.

    Back to my first review from September 2011: Mitterrand and the Panthéon

    Michel Chaudun: Beautiful and delicious chocolate

    by rexvaughan Written Feb 5, 2013

    I am no expert on chocolate, but this is really good. M. Chaudun is evidently the former chocolatier at La Maison du Chocolat which, from all I read, is one of the world’s premier choclatiers. At any rate, a friend at home told us that anytime she is going to Paris a friend gives her $200 or $300 just to buy some chocolate for her here. We were very impressed with the beautiful store and bought some. My little box of about 30 or 35 bite sized pieces cost about $50 so it is not cheap chocolate, but my Happy Hour group back home consumed most of those in a matter of minutes. Well worth the splurge!

    Paris Cy & Cyber Cube: Internet Access in Paris

    by shrimp56 Updated Jan 19, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Internet access for the visitor in Paris isn't always easy to find. The Cyber Cube in the Eiffel Tower area is no more , nor is the Access Academie in the 6th [from what I have been told].
    The two I used this last trip are The Cyber Cube at 5 rue Mignon [Tél : +33 1 53 10 30 ], just off St. Germain near the Odeon metro station and Paris Cy at 8 rue de Jouy [Tél.] in the Marais very near the new Shoah Memorial/Documentation Center. Both were were pleasant. The Cyber Cube tends to fill up as the day goes on.

    What to pay: The rates were variable based on the time of day, but you could usually get a half hour for about 2 euro.

    Various Shops: A Walk Down Av Hoche

    by riorich55 Written Aug 14, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    After having a 4 hour lunch with a group of VTers, a short car tour by VTer Gwened and the flame ceremony at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday we ventured off on one of the wheel spoke streets from the Arc de Triomphe (Av. Hoche) with nothing more in mind then to see part of Paris that we hadn't been to yet.

    As we walked we took a variety of pictures and saw a number of very chic looking people.

    Although we didn't stop in any stores, and it looked like most were closed by the time we were walking by we did enjoy this little jaunt a little to the north of the very famous Av. des Champs Elysees.

    Internet: Hole-in-the-wall phone shops

    by Nemorino Updated Jul 27, 2012

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Now that a lot of the large internet cafés have closed down, your best bet for getting internet access (if you don’t carry a WiFi device of your own) is to look for one of the many hole-in-the-wall phone shops that you will find all over Paris, particularly in the poorer neighborhoods.

    The one in the first photo is a Lycamobile shop at 17, avenue Jean Jaurès in the 19th arrondissement. This particular shop has four computers with internet access, three phone booths and a soft drink machine. But they make their money primarily by selling mobile phones, accessories and services. They also sell SIM-cards, though they sometimes give the SIM-cards away to get people started using their phone connections.

    I used the computers here several times while I was staying at the Hotel Abricotel, which is just around the corner. The cost for internet access at this shop was very reasonable, much less than you would have to pay at one of the few remaining large-scale internet cafés.

    Second photo: Here is a PubliPhone shop on the same street, in fact on the same block just a few doors down. As you can see from the flags in the window, they mainly provide international telephone connections and mobile phones, but they also have a few computers for internet access.

    Shopping at designer stores

    by GentleSpirit Written Jul 15, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Paris is loaded with designer stores. You know the prices will be sky high for even the simplest thing, but go in anyway and have a look around. And don't let your eyes pop out of their sockets when you take a look at the price of things. I remember seeing a small women's wallet, barely able to hold a few credit cards, the price was easily a months mortgage for some people

    not too expensive!
