Where I feel good!


First of the month=theme day! (time flies, it's crazy...) Anyway today's theme is "my favorite part of town". I don't really have one except, like I already mentioned it several times, Les quais - the river banks. But I chose to show you a place where I feel good, I feel part of the city, I feel like I belong here: a typical Paris café, in front of which the passersby, well, pass by! I'm sure you know what I mean, for you certainly feel the same about some places in the city where you live. Check what the other CDP bloggers love about their city.

  1. Oh Eric, I"m LOL. Of course the cafe would be our favorite as well but I"m laughing at the "green man with the green trashcan!" SoOOO Paris! HA

  2. And maybe part of the reason you feel good here is because this hardworking man (and his colleagues) keeps things nice and clean! So you love les quais—now I understand your choice for location of the PDP pique-nique. And great photo, btw!

  7. No wonder, it's a great neighbourhood. I passed it this summer, as it is opposite Le Centre P., but had no idea that you might be there :)

  8. This is a particularly great place for lingering over a coffee after picking up that paint at Leroy Merlin, Eric! Wonderful for people-watching also!!!

  9. Originaire de la région de Mende, peut-être ?

  10. It's funny, I often ask people what their favourite part of Paris is, but when they ask me I realise I don't know, and end up just saying 'Paris itself' or something weak like that. So I do know what you mean.
    It's funny how Virginia thinks of the green 'trash can man' as being so Paris - I've never thought of that before, but you must be right I suppose!

  12. Having been to Paris only in my dreams, I can imagine that this would be close to my favorite place, possibly displaced by our favorite lady, La Eiffel! I've heard a lot about macarons at Laduree as well. I'm looking forward to trying a rose and violet macaron there! Merci, Eric!

  13. Yes,I'd say that pretty much nothing is better than watching the world go by sitting in a Parisian sidewalk cafe It's just not the same anywhere else.
    Thanks Eric,your website is still the first one I go to every day to get my day started off right

  15. Bonjour Eric,
    I was pleasantly surprised to see Le Mont Lozere as one of your favourites because I too love this little cafe. It's not the comforting food I adore but the fact that you rub shoulders with everyone, it's pretty cramped at best. Best wishes, Therese
