Pin It I really wanted to go to the Olympics. Really bad. But we couldn't get tickets. So we went to Paris instead. Not too shabby.
Coquelicot (Métro Abessess). Here, they serve coffee by the bowl. Literally. Nothing like a bowl-o-joe to get you going in the am.
Boulangerie this weekend! I'll let you know how it compares. I doubt they will serve my coffee in a bowl which is a plus, especially to get you jacked up for a day of free museum viewing. All of the museums in Paris are free on the first Sunday of the month. We went to Musée D'Orsay, which has an amazing Impressionist collection. A must see when visiting.
How to order a Fallafel to go @ L'As Du Fallafel:
1.) Follow the yellow napkin wrapped falafel eating people (get off at Métro St. Paul).
2.) When you arrive, order from the guy shouting something about a fallafel in French. Pay him and he'll give you a ticket
3.) Get in the line on your left.
4.) Hand the Falafel making men your ticket (I swear they are faster than Jimmy John's and we all know Jimmy John's is freaky fast.
5.) Eat your falafel in a nearby park or on the curb if it suits you. It suits me.
Even the NYT loves L'As Du Fallafel. Keep in mind they are closed on Saturdays, as it's the Jewish Sabbath. For me, this area is the best spot to spend a Sunday in Paris.
