Au Rendez-Vous de Montmartre - café




Au Rendez-Vous de Montmartre, café-bar-restaurant

...a place where everybody knows your name


Well, perhaps not, but can you imagine a better place
 to put on your red hightop sneakers and visit with a friend?

... and not just any sneakers, Converse, of course! They look so good, with "le zinc" (the counter) as backdrop! Great shot Genie. Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

Hello Genie:
We can well see ourselves sitting atop those high chrome stools and idling away an entire morning, if not a whole day - punctuated of course with plenty of coffee.

Palomasea said...

Oh wonderful, may I join dear Jane and Lance in their idling? ;)
Chere Genie, I love this! The red is a gorgeous frame, and that lovely lady looks genuinely happy!

Thank you so much for you very kind words, Genie...I am very touched by your dear sentiments, and feel very blessed to know you.
Bises!

Cafe au Lait. A French Coffee Drink. The meaning of the term differs between Europe and the United States; in both cases it means some kind of coffee with hot milk added, in contrast to white coffee, which is coffee with room temperature milk or other whitener added. Make mine a double.

Wish I was there too, looks so inviting with the door open and the sun shining.

Well, at Montmartre, a problem may be to find the genuine place, where “everybody knows your name”, but with your usual flair, you obviously spotted one of them!

Debs said...

Oh absolutely! Especially with the red high tops!

avec ce beau temps c'est bar ou terrasse

Shell Sherree said...

Hee! They look very friendly and welcoming. That's a wonderful idea, Genie.

Love the red framing the dark interior. Looks like a place I would enjoy.

Red high tops, candy cane laces and with bells on too. Well maybe not for me, but someone else :)

Kris said...

The lady smiling sure looks like she is enjoying your picture. Where else other than Paris can you see red high top sneakers?

Why is it that the red entry and doors of the cafe's and shops in Paris look better than over here?

Picturit said...

Great image, You have captured the relaxed atmosphere perfectly.

Your photos of Paris are so dreamy!! I'm so happy we have you and Virginia blogging every day and I hope you never ever stop.

Mary said...

I want to go! :) What a lovely, happy looking place. What fun

Randy said...

A smile framed in red. Nice one.

Marci, Génie!

Jack said...

I always coordinate my footwear with the decor of my dining establishments. Doesn't everyone?

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Jane and Lance, hanging out at a zinc bar in Paris for an afternoon, meeting friends and making new ones is my idea of a perfect outing... It is difficult to force myself to s-l-o-w down and I am just now able to sit quietly in a park and stop taking photos. I must go back and try harder - haha!

Veronique, yes Converse and how could I fail to mention le zinc!

Kris, as I selected this photo I was wondering the very same thing. It is just too bad that our "red bars" are not as charming in the US as in Paris...

Jack, uh, I think that you do not.

To all, as is often the case, I did not see the Converse red hightops until I downloaded the photo, a lagnaippe! I have a few other versions of this café which I will share later.

Don't you love the stained glass window in the back?

Bises,
Genie

James said...

I like this very much! Sort of reminds me of a Doisneau photo.
