08 Sep Le Petit Déjeuner, The French Breakfast
The French breakfast, or le petit déjeuner as they call it, is an essential meal to have while traveling with the Gal Pals. We get up early and get our fill because we are on the go from sunrise to sunset. Fueling up with high-octane coffee and partaking in a soft buttery croissant gives our trip an extra special twist each morning. We depart our hotels ready to shop till we drop or hunt down an obscure artist in a museum. Whatever our day calls for, breakfast in France gets us off on the right path.
Although I almost never eat breakfast in America, for some reason I am breakfast obsessed while on my trips to France. Perhaps it’s because I am on vacation, perhaps it is because their version of the morning meal is much more celebrated. The coffee tastes better and the foods they serve are usually a compilation of the best traditional foods from all over the world. It helps too, that the dining areas tend to be more charming than their US counterparts. A good cup of coffee is essential, but what makes it a great cup of Joe is the atmosphere and manner in which it is served. All photos property of The Weekend In Paris.
