Cafe de la Paix!

 Bear has  arrived in Paris safe and sound if a tad sleepless.
 He takes the scenic route into Paris on Roisseybus.
 Bear spots his first French woman, walking her small dog, wearing a red coat + possibly carrying a vrais o faux Hermes Birkin bag...Ah Paris.
 Place de la Opera is looking pretty gorgeous this morning!
 Bear, feeling his oats. He remembers his not-so-hot breakfast(extremement crummy) on Delta decides to have petit dejeuner at famed Cafe de la Paix. What the Hey!
 Bear looks inside. Who can resist?
 Lovely French script on the menu too...
 It's day 1 and Bear is feeling flush with fresh euros...
 This is some grand place!
 Tres grande indeed.
 Possibly a little too grand for Bear. He immediately dribbles his thick, unctious hot chocolate (certainly a contender to Angelina's).
 Fortunately other savvy breakfasters don't lift an eyebrow at Bear's faux pas.
 Nevermind.
 It's time to catch the Eurostar/Gare du Nord for London.
See you tomorrow PBers with London tales!

Tomorrow in the very early a.m. I'll be having
my breakfast at "Jim's Lunch,"in a little South Jersey town. Obviously way at the other end of the spectrum from your first "Paris Breakfast" of this trip.

You really hit the ground running... and Cafe de la Paix first thing? What a lovely way to start the trip. I cannot wait for the next post. For some reason I am living vicariously through you this trip. Have a fabulous time.

Isn't Carol lucky that Bear lets her tag along?

Parisbreakfasts said...

Good point Nikon!
Bear does like to play fast and loose with the euros beginning of the trip.
Later on he is counting every centime and yelling at me for pastry extravagances :(
c'est la vie toujours

Wait, wait!
Will the next post be here, at Paris Breakfasts? Or is there now a sister site: London Breakfasts? I am so out of the loop.
Waiting with bated breath...

Alas, right now I can only afford to travel to Paris via Google Earth and PB! But, in the spirit of throwing caution to the wind, I took myself down to an authentic French patisserie in town today, and had an exquisite little cake and cup of coffee ... in Bear's honour (as one does). Hope you're enjoying the trip as much as Bear is :)
