I took this photo this morning at Saint Germain at the Café Bonaparte. Of course it's a little too much (too typical, too French, too blue, white, red!) but it's kinda cute ;-) I searched the web and found out that the first café appeared in Turkey in 1554 and that the first European one opened in 1615 in Venice. Paris had to wait until... 1643! Of course now we also have Starbucks LOL!
