L'Entracte -- café en rouge


L'Entracte's small terrace is dressed in rouge vif looking fresh for the season.




This tiny café's English translation means "the intermission" and is located across the street from Palais Garnier, the site of the L'Opéra de Paris.

I think you can find these chairs and tables only in Paris! I would love to sit there and have a chat with you!

Great colour love it

dive said...

Very smart, Genie. And very OCD.

Richard Moisan said...

Si je demandais à Genie: "Quelle est ta couleur préférée?" Peut-être serais-je surpris. Et pourtant, il semble bien que ce soit le rouge qui te fait vibrer!...
Vrai?

And then, la vie en rose... They seem to have everything :-)

Did someone leave a bit of pastry on that plate behind, are they mad!!!!!Would love to be sitting there eating pastries, drinking coffee after just having been to L'Opera!! Ah well..!

Gorgeous, Genie! Yes....on some of the old film channels they still have L'Entracte on the very long films like "Doctor Zhivago" & "Lawrence of Arabia".....just charming! Thank you! ^_^

I am in love with Parisian chairs, this is another beautiful place and colour!
The tables are quite close to each other.

Beautiful shot, Genie, and so parisien! I would like to find this café next time I´am in Paris and to take "un crème" there...

The red is very dramatic.

this is Belgium said...

I guess Richard is right.. en plus, it blends in so nicely with the frame of your blog

Malyss said...

red is the favorite color of this week! :o)

Gringo said...

Nice shot, and the closest I'm going to get today to a cafe!

Birdman said...

Red chairs do it for me. Don't know why.

Halcyon said...

Love the reds!

Harriet said...

Thanks for the translation. Your photography skills make me feel as though I am really in the midst of these chairs. Great shot.

Bibi said...

Red, red, red! No better color. I don't wear much red, but sure love to see it. And in October I'm having a photo exhibit here---theme is RED! :)

Virginia said...

Mega rouge and I missed it. Must have been fixated on the Apple Store Opéra! :)

What a delightful looking place! I'd love to spend some time there watching the people and enjoying some French pastry!! Wonderful capture as always. Enjoy, mon amie!

Loree said...

I absolutely love that shade of red and the cafe looks like a perfect place for a coffee after the opera.

Alexa said...

Wonderful! Just to keep up the color scheme, I'll have a kir, s'il te plait. (And to answer your question, that would be the mysterious Lila.)

Kris said...

Great photo. When I think of the French, I always think of the color red. It is a bold color and one that even that red head wore via her coat in an earlier photo.

Jann said...

I want to be sitting there right now!

Jack said...

Wow, Genie. I am reaching for my sunglasses. That is just about the most intense red I can remember.

Randy said...

Looks like a cheerful place.

Yesterday's photo in black and white but the awning was.... rouge vif! I thought that you did not need red all week long.

Vreni, I would love to meet you and other blog friends there also.

Richard, I am fickle when it comes to favorite colors so I can only say ... it depends.

Alexa, I'll join you for a kir

Bibi, tell me more about your exhibit! Congratulations, mon amie

Jann, nice to see you again!

beau gosse - There are times when you do not want to leave the action or theme of a movie and there is no intermission. If it had not been for intermissions, my sisters and I would never have made it sitting through classical concerts as kids... Thanks for the reminder.

Grace, when we meet there, we will NOT leave even a morsel, not even a crumb of pastry!

Bises,
Genie

Ah! «Louis» has seen this café, but never visited it...

THIS IS PARIS!:)

JM said...

Very, very cool composition.

James said...

I love it! I want to sit there now! :)

classic • casual • home said...

How great would these chairs be in my kitchen!!!

What a charming photo! I'm so drawn to the color red. Thanks for visiting my blog. I loved your comment about crying on the plane to make room for your hat box.
