Les Palettes, Annecy

Les Palettes, Annecy | Bites from Taste of Savoie | Scoop.it
I know I say this everytime I visit Annecy but it really is true...this is a wonderful and interesting medieval town with so many great places to discover, shops to visit, galleries to see and historic sites to enjoy.  Not to mention the absolutely stunning freshwater lake surrounded by mountain scenery.  Apart from all of these reasons to visit, there is a plethora of fabulous restaurants and cafes to eat in!  So my latest find is Les Palettes and this is no ordinary restaurant/cafe, it is also a concept store and those who know me well will know that a melange of shopping and eating is my idea of heaven!
