A Sweet Afternoon at La Grande Mosquée

If you’re looking for a unique little spot in Paris to have a cup of mint tea and wonderful Arabic sweets, the café at La Grande Mosquée is the perfect spot. Located in the 5th arrondissement, it is a little traditional café with Moroccan tiles and furniture within the mosque itself. There is also a hammam in here, a perfect way for Parisians to relax.  On weekends, the café is pretty packed so I went on a weekday to enjoy some delicious Arabic pastry. As soon as you enter this café, you are transported far away to Northern Africa with the décor and ambience. It’s a must visit!
