And one that  meets  in the middle!   This one was quite near our apartment.

We always ate breakfast at a table outside a cafe.  The traditional French breakfast is a croissant, butter, baguette and fruit preservers  along with orange juice and  a cappuccino.

Our dear French friend insists that the croissants must be plain but  the chocolate ones we like are available. . . . . maybe just for the tourists!

Cafes are a great place for a glass of cider or beer, snails, a sandwich or any light French meal.  Always there is crusty bread and cheese.  And you can sit and rest after eating and no one insists that you leave. Most of the waiters,especially  the young ones ,speak English after the bonjour  and merci!

My husband loves to tease me about how little I have of French though I have many years on my transcripts!   I always remind him that i TOOK French  but never say I STUDIED  French!   I remember Je ne sais pas and Je ne comprendez pas so I could respond in Francis to madame! I have no idea if these are spelled correctly but thought I wouldn’t check for spelling so that you get the full  extinct  of my French!

    Oh, my goodness, Anne. The bread all looks so good. I’m beginning to gain some weight back and clothes are getting snug, so I really have to watch my calorie intake, and here you are posting those lovely photos of my favorite foods. Most of the Indian cuisine is in that category. Hugs ((()))

        Some truths are hard to face, my friend, says the lady who spent the day making drunken chicken with mashed potatoes and gravy from scratch. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have a banquet table laid out and kept supplied constantly with all the favorites?

    The chocolat ones are not croissants but called pains au chocolat. Nice.

    My first visit to Paris was in 1977; my last was 2007. ‘Bout time for me to return, n’est-ce pas?

  4. This was a lovely post on the cafes. I just wrote about a nice cafe in Dublin and did a search to see what other special cafes are out there and found your post, which was a pleasant surprise. http://Www.brilliantviewpoint.com.
