Bar de l'Echelle - café en rose foncé



Although this café terrace is not in a traditional color scheme, I was tempted to have a seat with my bright orange coat and multi-colored scarf just to make a fashion statement. 

Often in Paris it is necessary to stand out from the other twenty cafés that line the street.
I would say that De l'Echelle has found one way.

They did a splendid job making a fashion statement and I do love the Coco Chanel quote from Veronique! Perfect! Enjoy, mon amie!

Hello Genie:
We absolutely 'go' for this which surely provides a little added interest to the normal street scene, if such is required. We have been trying to persuade some friends to paint the furniture on their terrace pink, but so far without success!

Kate said...

This cafe is certainly outstanding in the strictest sense of the word? For some reason I don't associate pink with Paris, which I'm sure is one reason it's successful.

I love those charming pink tables! ;)
What about some coffee now?

A new trend ... Paris Rose? Love this new find.

Jana said...

"just meet me at the one with pink tables" I would know when I arrived

Alexa said...

It's a standout for sure—and I'd have liked to see you and your orange coat here too!

Pam Holnback said...

May not be traditional, but oh so wonderful.!

I would have loved to see you sitting there, a bright flame amongst the sea of pink Genie! Coco Channel would have been so impressed!

PerthDailyPhoto said...

p.s. thanks for the compliment this morning Genie, they are pretty adorable, but I am pretty ancient, just well preserved haha!

Virginia said...

Well it's a little to "pank" as my momma use to say! :) That said, your orange coat would be smashing with the tables.

Ooh la la, a pink cafe made just for women. HA This cafe definitely "stands out"!

Starman said...

Their "Pink" theme is wasted on me. If you hadn't told us, I would never have known. Color blind, you know.

Très belle terrasse qui donne vraiment envie de s'asseoir pour profiter de l'ambiance du lieu.

The pink tables and trim on the chairs sure caught my eye.

Pet said...

What about the coffee? :-)

Jean said...

Soooooo Chic!

Halcyon said...

It makes me think it's a breast cancer cafe. ;)

Jack said...

Eeeeeeew. This one is not for me, Genie.

Cheri said...

These are my favaorite. Love the pink tables!

Randy said...

Makes me crave ice cream.

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Love the comments today from "pank" chairs and Coco quotes to craving ice cream and color blindness. (I am sorry, Starman)

I do think that on my next trip to Paris, I will have to sit at this café in striking contrast to these tables and wait for my friends to joint me. See you at the terrace with the pink tables!

Bises,
Genie

I would be drawn to this cafe like a fly to honey! Love the pink!

Oh, this is so my café! I can´t wear pink because of my red hair, but I love this colour!!
