The Rue des Martyrs houses decidedly good surprises! Jules adores wandering up and down the road, looking for the newest things. It is on a sunny day in October that he pushes open the door to the mysterious Jam room of Lise Bienaimé.
Behind this pretty name hides a gourmet passion for fruity sweetness, coming all the way from her great grandfather, Joseph Soulier. This whiskered gentleman made his jams in a shop in Faubourg Saint Honoré. Lise also fell in the marmite and followed the family destiny.

In her boutique there are over 100 recipes of jams, marmelades, jellies and other house chutneys. Difficult to navigate around as the smells are all alluring; from pink strawberries to green tomatoes from glossy chestnuts to lavender apricots while passing by the wild rose, EVERYTHING seems DE-LI-CIOUS!
Open Tuesday to Friday 11am to 2.30pm and 3.30pm to 7.30pm, Saturday from 10am to 7.30pm an Sunday from 10am to 2pm. Closed on Mondays.
