La vie dans un café



A midmorning breakfast at the
romantique and historic Brasserie du Louvre...

...a wonderful menu
...Champagne with your eggs
...beautifully appointed 
...charming rod and curtains painted for privacy

Can you spot the American tourist?
tsk-tsk-tsk

Leisurely Parisien breakfast. Seems about right.

Eggs and champagne, eh? Why didn't I order that every day for breakfast while I still lived in Paris? I am stuck with cereal now... Dommage... Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

Madame Brussels brunched at Brasserie du Louvre every Saturday morning. She could often be seen at her regular table, tomato juice in hand, eyes missing nothing. Today was no exception.

Champagne with breakfast? Ooh, la, la. That sounds divine, then the tourist in the picture could be moi!

For the tourist in your picture, I'm guessing the man in the baseball cap?

Have a wonderful weekend Genie. Think of us in the South with the heat wave that the weather service has in store for us. It's even going to be hot in the mountains.

Genie - This shot makes me long for Paris! My way-too-short visit was just a few years ago, but I am already planning my return.

And I'm so glad you found St. Petersburg and my blog. I hope you visit often to see what's going on.

Happy weekend Genie,

Now that sounds like a wonderful breakfast. And probably the man with the cap???????

Merisi said...

Beautiful, evocative image! :-)

As for the American tourist, kudos to him for being clever enough to protect his head and face from the sun (I always pity any tourist sightseeing in this weather, exhaustive even for the strongest person).

Kristin said...

I had to take a second look but I LOVE the painted curtain. It is done so well and so creative...great window

Malyss said...

Champagne at breakfast?! I think that coffee is more usual!
the man with glasses seems to be hypnotised by the woman in front of him.. :o)

Kris said...

Yep, I believe he is the one with the ball cap on! HA How funny that Americans can so easily be recognized by their attire.

Enjoy the weekend! :)

Starman said...

The guy you're calling an American tourist could well double for an Englishman I know.

Painting a curtain..now that is a clever idea. Wonder if the artist would be a saving over a decorator. Whew had to look twice..happy to report that the American is NOT my husband.

Harriet said...

I love the painted curtain. I would not have noticed that it was painted had you not mentioned it. Thanks for the photo.

Lisa Farmer Designs said...

I think the painted window is wonderful and the tourist could very well be my son. LOL

Pet said...

Champagne with eggs. The perfect combination for Cathedrals!
I'll keep the place on mind.

louciao said...
