Rue Saint Roch - ma rue à Paris



Rue Saint Roch
my street in Paris


This is undoubtedly one of the smallest of café terraces with seating for six.
Rue Saint Roch runs between Rue de Rivoli 
and Avenue de l'Opéra, a single-lane, one-way street.


From my residence of choice in Paris, I can look (hang) out of the large windows 
and watch the school children marching their way to Jardin des Tuileries, 
gaze on the large stained glass windows of Église Saint-Roch, 
or, in warm weather, observe the wonderful food selections on the terrace below.  
Often we can hear the music from one or more of the church's three organs.


Just thinking about my street in Paris lightens my mood 
and brings a smile to my face.

Lovely shot of an intimate terrasse parisienne... Would love to get the address of your "residence of choice..." You never know. It may come in handy... Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

A great choice for this theme day: I recognized the place immediately! It is a tiny funny place and I also posted it on my travel blog a couple of years ago...

It's pleasant to think about places where we feel good.

Judging from the way they're dressed, the two guys at the table must love frozen food!!

Hey, isn't that the same street that Virginia stays on when she is in Paris? There has to be a reason . . .

Mary said...

Love this! How enchanting. :)

I enjoyed V's view of your street—and yours is totally charming too. You guys are lucky to have such a good view when you're in our fave place!

Buck said...

Such a photogenic street - thank you for sharing this beautiful place!

What a wonderful little corner of Paris. It goes straight into my list of places to visit next time in Paris!

Vreni said...

In Paris there is nearly everywhere a place to put tables and chairs. I will soon go to your street and think of you.
