Sipping on a Café (coffee/espresso) while sitting at a Parisian café is one of my favorite things to do. How do you take your coffee? I like mine straight up, the stronger the better!
Cafés are staple rendezvous points in Paris. Most cafés offer much more than tea and coffees. Typically the menus include plat du jour (special of the day), croque monsieur (yummy melty cheese sandwich), onion soup, salads, frites (fries), vin (wine), beer (bier), and more. Here are some of my fav Café experiences from the last few months.
When you see a large tabac sign outside of a French Café, then you know they sell a variety of tobacco products, which are very popular here.
If it’s a sunny day, or even a warm day, outdoor seating at Cafés all over the city will be packed! The tables and chairs only come out when the weather is right. The outdoor seating usually sprawls onto the city sidewalks (perfection for people watching)!
Parisian cafés come in many shapes and sizes, some are fancy, while most are casual. Here are some of my favorite spots!
Most cafes have daily happy hours!
Chin Chin (cheers) to Paris and all of the amazing cafes!
