Organic grub just down the road

For some freakish reason the area around the apartment seems to have loads of supermarkets, all of them pretty tiny. Personally I would have preferred just the one - giant size - but perhaps central Paris just doesn't have the space?

Anyway, most of them are not only tiny but also borderline grimy. Hurrah then for this new organic place just a minute away. It replaced of one the grubbier supermarkets last August and now has everything you need to eat organic, drink organic, clean organic, cook organic, snack organic... I think you get what I mean. It also happens to be one of the biggest places around. Look!

The design is lovely, much in the vein of my favourites Monoprix, and much less like the grumpy, rootsy organic places that we're used to here. It's calle Lémo and belongs to the Biocoop network of shops that is currently expanding wildly.

If I'm passing by the apartment for something, I often pick up one of their nice tarts or sandwiches (alfalfa and olive tapenade is a favourite). Could come in handy if you're too knackered from full-on clubbing to cook in our lovely kitchen... ;-)
Lémo is at 66 boulevard de Sébastopol, open every day except Sunday from 10am to 8pm. Here's how to get there from the apartment (it's all of 200 metres away. Don't get lost...)

L'Emo is open from Monday to Saturday from 10am to 8pm
