What to buy from Fauchon?
What have you found that is particularly delicious and special / unique to the region that can be purchased from Fauchon in Paris?
Is this the only Fauchon location in Paris?
24-26 Place de la Madeleine
9:00 am – 8:00 pm
I wouldnt suggest the macarons from Fauchon, as they are not anything special.
I would like to try one of their eclairs, or the tarte with frais de bois.
I think in Paris you can do so much better in everything than the same one at Fauchon or Paul or...
Near the store you mentioned there is the first Laduree store with cafe.

So I take it this should be a daytime visit?
You should start a publically viewable google map of places you review. You could set the color of the pushpin based on your rating scale.
Then, I could have it with me on my smartphone when I travel.
I'd want to figure out how to make my phone play Edith Piaf or France's anthem or vibrate when I get near something that you had recommended. How cool would that be. It would be like having you in my purse :-).
In Chrome on maps.google.com, you have to click on the gear-shaped button, top far right. Then "My Places" to use the version of Maps that makes it easy to create "My Maps".
From there you just search for a place, then click "Save to Map" and name it John Talbott's Paris.
You could always export your maps locations or Points of Interest (POIs) to a standard list of locations (called a KML file) and then import it into other maps software or Garmin.

Thank you! Those passageways look like a great way to spend a couple hours.
I put 2 pushpins with flags "sites" in my Paris google map, one each on
11 Boulevard Montmartre
158 rue Montmartre
labeled Entrance: Montmartre Shopping Passages
looks like the first one is closer to A La Mère de Famille
So I could start with
A La Mère de Famille on 35 Rue du Faubourg Montmartre
go into the passageway at 11 Boulevard Montmartre
exit from the passageway at 158 rue Montmartre
