On the corner of the rue Lecourbe and the boulevard Pasteur, in the 15th, this new café opened a couple of months ago.
The weather in July turned sidewalk cafés into shady refuges from the heat for people out touring Paris on foot, as I was doing. Find a table, order whatever else you want to drink, and then add: « Et avec un grand verre d'eau, s'il vous plaît... »
I think this house is close to two hundred years old!ReplyDelete
Love the corner/sidewalk cafes in Paris. I like the cafes in other towns also, but there's something special about the cafes in Paris!ReplyDelete
I somehow find it surprising that there is room for new cafés to open. In the sense that there are plenty already and not too many suitable street corner buildings to attach them too.ReplyDelete
This one seems to be positioned nicely to catch the shade and the customers.
Jean: As far as I can remember — some eighty decades — there's always been a café/restaurant at this corner. Recently, it was called La Savoie where, probably, the owners retired. The new owners completely refurbished the whole thing. It reopened just a few days before Ken's first visit in early July.ReplyDelete
I was in Paris 4th - 9th July , it was HOT then and I carried water everywhere and stopped as you said in many cafes in the shade ,, also I walked in areas with the trees down the middle of the streets .. and I walked miles.ReplyDelete
Hello Anne, I was in Paris July 3 to 7. Maybe we passed each other on the street....ReplyDelete
We just might of done , I walked everywhere .. I also met two new friends (bloggers) Linda (Frenchless in France) and Peter (Peters Paris) , not sure if you know either of them , they showed me new areas too.ReplyDelete
I have never been to Paris when it is really baking hot and I don't blame the Parisians for taking shelter in a nice café. Good tip about the jug of water.ReplyDelete
