One of my favorite things to do in France is sitting at a cafe and just watching. People watching, waiter watching, listening, seeing if I can make out what people are saying. The best part is you can stay for as long as you like….and you won’t be rushed. It is worth the *sometimes steep* price of a cafe creme and croissant or glass of wine and a tart…just to have an experience. Oh, and don’t expect the waiter to bring you your bill. You must ask. Just say…"l’addition s’il vous plait" in a pretty sing-song voice…and voila!
This time out we visited our *neighborhood* cafe in the Marais, Le Dome.
and the historic La Palette on the Left Bank
And we chose the Cafe Deux Magot to watch life go by on Boulevard Saint Germain des Pres….I just love how all the logo is on the cup, saucer, sugar and even chocolate…
I saved a table just for you. Won’t you join me?
Oh how I miss my daily cafe creme and the buttery flakey golden goodness that is called the croissant…and only Paris can get it right!
