LA VIE PARISIENNE – LITTLE PARIS OF CEBU CITY

One of Cebu’s finest French restaurants, La Maison Rose, comes another delightful French cadeau from the Llhuilliers, La Vie Parisienne it means the Parisian Life in English.

La Vie Parisienne is a French bakery, deli and a wine library at 371 Gorodo Avenue Lahug, Cebu City, Philippines.

A cousin of  mine who happened to work in a call center in Cebu  and a friend who used to work and lived in Cebu recommended this place to me. They said this is a nice deli for pastries,  breads and wines. I was intrigued about the place and really wanted to see and scope it out for myself. I googled the place and the moment I saw photos of it, I was smitten by its charm. That day I listed the deli on my bucket list of places to visit.

It was 2014, when we went back to Cebu for a short vacation, so without any hesitation, the following day I told my partner we need to go and try their deli.  After our tour at the Temple of Leah we flagged down a taxi and told the driver to bring us to La Vie Parisienne.

Outside, the deli doesn’t look fancy but wait until you step inside; the bakery is quite small but at the back door they have a spacious garden area where tables and chairs been set up surrounded by cherry blossom trees. The atmosphere is so relaxing, with a pretty ambiance and  perfect location at the center of Cebu City.

I was a little disappointed we were not able to come back at night, we were too tired that we just wanted to relax in the hotel. La Vie Parisienne is a place to chill and hang out especially at night with all the design and lightning. Prices of food and drinks are reasonable. The deli with its unique atmosphere is really worth a visit. I will definitely love to go back and visit!

I want to travel the world and I want to feel the anonymity of being in a foreign city and being surrounded by hundreds of people who are going in a hundred different directions.
