"Papillote" French Eatery in Savannah GA made my weekend Get Away a totally French Experience!

Welcome to another Fab Foodie Friday with Michael at "Designs by Gollum"!

I just returned from a fabulous trip to Charleston, SC and Savannah, GA this past Monday.

While in Savannah, I came across this divine newly opened of 5mos French Eatery called "Papillote". While there I enjoyed one of the Chef's fabulous French pastries called "Coffee Macaroon! It melted away into my mouth and I still remember the experience, yummy and delicious! :)

This is what I purchased in the "Papillote" to bring some of the French experience back home. A luscious tea that I tried for the first time today! It's "tea-heavenly"! ;) And, I asked the owner if they ship, and they do! Oui!

Then, of course, I needed something French to munch on as well, so my Beloved Hubby bought me a Quimper Tin (Yes Debbie, Quimper Tin! :) full of French Bretagne Biscuits (cookies) by "Ker Cadelac". Both are products of France. Ahhhh....Sighhhhh....a totally French experience that I brought back home!
Be sure to check out the Papillote if you are in the Savannah, GA area! Here is the information for their location below. They have their own Website and the owners are totally fantastic! Be sure to read their credentials and bios under ABOUT US - they will be around for a very long time I believe! We were totally excited to have found this gem of a French Experience and plan to revisit when in Savannah the next time!
For those of you that have never gone to Charleston, SC or Savannah, GA - It's a MUST! I love each city in a unique way! While in Savannah, we stayed at The Catherine Ward House Inn., a B&B. It was a lovely experience and the owner Leslie was very hospitable to us! So...not only did we have a great FOODIE experience at Papillote, we also had a fabulous time of relaxation at a lovely Retreat Getaway! Click here to check out the B&B!

Hope you all are having a really great and fun Summer!
Don't forget to drop by "Designs by Gollum" to visit all the other Fabulous Foodie Friday shares on 8/21! :)

Oh I am so jealous. I have never been to SC anywhere, but I would LOVE to. I know Debbie will be jealous of the cookie tin. It is just wonderful. I am so glad you had a great time. Hugs, Marty

Oh how fun, CC! I love Savannah!! And you know I have Quimper envy! I actually have a little collection of cookie tins from Brittany, but none from Quimper! I will have to check out their web site! The sleepover sounds like fun! I haven't done that in years...but, it's my birthday and my family is taking me out! You all have fun. I'll be thinking about you! We do need to get together soon. I'll even do Starbuck's if that's OK with you. You are the busy gal, so you can pretty much tell me when! Have a wonderful rest of the week!...hugs...Debbie

This post brings back memories of a wedding I helped a friend cater for her sister. The wedding was in Savannah, GA in the middle of August. I'm don't sweat much, but I think I was pretty much soaked during my entire 3-day stay. Man that place is hot!

Glad you had a great trip, I haven't been to Savannah but love to go someday soon. The Quimper tin is lovely and the choc. macaroons sound very tempting....Christine

Maggie Bryant said...

Hi Catherine,
I love all things Quimper and so enjoyed your post about Savannah, I go back there as often as I can. Maybe Debbie told you that the Quimper Club will be holding it's annual meeting in Savannah in 2010?

Lovely post, I'm going to Savannah in the Fall and will definitely check out Papillote and the B & B. I bookmarked their site.

If you stop by for my FF post, check out my post from Wednesday also. I posted about our local B & B here in the Tampa Bay area in the lovely town of Dunedin. If you're ever down this way, you may just want to stay at the Meranova.

Thanks so much for your recommendations for accommodations and restaurants. I love the souvenirs you brought back with you. I hope you are having a wonderful day.

What fun and I love the look of the French eatery. I am glad you had such a great trip. I am finally at a place where I can get back to blogging and hope that I never have to back off again as I missed everyone so much.

Joyce said...

Travel into Savannah and Charleston all the time. Just love it there. Sue and I missed you at the cooking class. We had so much fun but I guess you were having fun in the sun on the coast which is a good thing:)
