The Scoop on Scoop

Unfortunately, Scoop, "le café branché" is gone.  It closed its doors sometime recently, over the summer break apparently.   I only found out the other day, as I walked down rue Saint Honoré like I have a million times before, and was shocked to find it was simply not there anymore!     

I don't know the story behind why they closed - it had a good following.  Some even thought they had the best burger in Paris.  Others liked their bagels.  And of course, they were known for their ice cream.  Looking at their website gives a clue - it appears they're planning something new....I say, "Bon chance! And please stay close to the neighborhood!"

I feel a need to make a batch of bagels in remembrance of the old place...

Here's a picture of the new place.  It's called Oh mon Cake!! (Oh my Cake!!, as if that needs translating!).  I haven't felt compelled to try it.  Maybe because I've been too busy making my own sweets lately or maybe because I'm not that in to rice crispy treats and pound cakes.  (I'm sure that if I were to actually go in, I would discover much more.)  If anyone tries it, I hope to hear from you!

Bonjour Diane,
I'll put it on my list - unfortunately I do like pound cake, my grandmother's pund cake was one of her most delicious recipes.
The Autumn chill has definitely arrived in Paris, so I'm on my yearly hunt for great chocolat chaud!
Have a good week,

Of course it's spelled "Bonne chance"

Of course it is -- vous avez raison -- you are *sooo* right! I still make several silly mistakes on the masculine/feminine....but I thought I had learned that "chance" is feminine!! Sloppy. Thanks for keeping me on my toes!
