Ile St. Louis was our home for the nine days we were in Paris.  Ile St. Louis is convenient to everything, but there is very little auto traffic so it is quaint and quiet and avoids the din that covers most of Paris.  We stayed at a charming little hotel - Hotel Saint-Louis, in what was probably the largest room in the hotel.

We quickly discovered the Patisserie across the street  (did you know that I speak menu in many, many languages?)   PASTRY!   Breakfast of Champions!  Now we're talking!   Isn't that what vacation is all about?

There was a small church down the street from the hotel.   The church of Saint-Louis-en-l'Ile (built 1664 - 1726), on Rue Ile St. Louis, on Ile St. Louis.   Hmmm, notice a trend?  Anyway, this may have been Momís favorite church.  It wasnít much on the outside, but it was gorgeous inside with a lovely Baroque interior Ė just your typical little neighborhood church.
