Paris in Town, Le Bistro, Le Cafe, Restaurant, French Bakery, The Gardens, North Palm Beach, Palm Beach County, Florida, “A Taste of France in the Palm Beaches”, Love French Macaroons!

Arriving in Singer Island, Florida for a little Spring Get-A-Way found us looking at grey skies.  That was not going to deter Cindi, Madelon and I.  We were determined to enjoy our stay to the fullest.


Our first stop just as soon as our luggage was dropped off (mine was lost to be delivered later in the evening) was to have a late lunch at Paris in Town, Le Bistro located at the Gardens on 11701 Lake Victoria Gardens Ave., North Palm Beach, FL 33410  Tel. 561-622-1616.  Website?

This restaurant is casual and was opened after their first restaurant, Paris in Town Le Cafe opened years ago and became an institution in North Palm Beach.  They serve lunch, dinner and Sunday Brunch.  We arrived late in the afternoon and even though we waited a bit to be served, our lunch was very good.


We were all thirsty after our trip so Bloody Marys were a good way to start.


The Smoked Turkey with Apple and Brie hit the spot.


The King Henry Chicken Salad was fresh and delicious.


My Nicoise Grilled Tuna Salad….sorry I must have been I don’t know where but I forgot to take the photo.  The tuna was fresh and was cooked medium rare….just to my liking.

Paris in Town Le Cafe is located at 11460 U.S. Highway 1, at PGA Blvd., North Palm Beach, FL 33408  Tel. 561-626-6017  Website?  This is my favorite of the two.  Quaint, a bistro serving, crepes, paninis, salads and pastries.  They open Monday through Saturday from 7:30 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.  Sunday from 7:30 a.m. until 4:00 p.m.

What brought us to this location was their Macaroons.  The regular size and the minis.  They are so colorful and gorgeous.  Did you kow that the French Almond Macaroons are taking over the top spot as a favorite dessert….more sought after than cupcakes!


Macaroons go well with coffee, lunch, brunch, afternoon tea and even for snacks.  They are more expensive due to the fact that they are labor intensive.  You have to have the technique down for a macaroon to be delicious.  The filling, the coloring…chocolate and fruit preserves, preferably from France add to its cost.  Ground almonds are expensive and it is a key ingredient to this delicate pastry.


We hope the recipients of these macaroons enjoyed them…just one goes a long way.

Talk to you later.
