A Dog’s Life at Café Conti

Café Conti is the place where Gal Pal Lisa winds up having a late breakfast or early lunch after she sleeps in and misses having breakfast with the rest of us at the hotel. Usually she has a “proper” cup of English tea while we head out to scope out our shopping prospects for the day, but this past trip I joined her for a bite.
Surprisingly delicious and affordable, this café has excellent service. Open early, this charming place has an added bonus – an adorable mascot. Orson is one cute pooch who belongs to the owner of Café Conti. He hangs out greeting guests with a wag of his tail or indifference. I have seen him for years walk past me at Cafė de Paris as he checks in to say hello to his local favorites. He then waltzes past the shellfish vendor, stops to smell the new flowers at the flower stand before his rendezvous with his owner back at the café.

    According to our friends who just landed in Paris today, Le Conti is now an ex-café, having apparently closed shortly after we visited last fall. Orson left his world some time ago.

      Yes, the cafe was leased and now the owners took it back to expand the hotel above it. I miss Orson but he has been replaced with another little pooch wandering around and one of these days I will get to know his or her name too!

      Let’s hope Orson is not on a walkabout when we are there…
      Can’t wait to see you!
