It looks fine to me, and the cheeses! Be still my beating heart! I do not have great cheese opportunities in southeastern mass., but there is a cheese shop in nearby Providence and I intend to print out some of your recommendations and go foraging. Have a wonderful day!
Some coffee in France is frankly terrible. Tip: Le Petit Moka in Narbonne (place de l'Hotel de Ville) does good coffee. Best coffee in Lézignan is chez Claudine (Le Kingston) -- she does "cappucino" with whipped cream on top, not very authentic but then she is Belgian! Other than that, look for cafés that serve Illy (Italian) coffee -- it's the best!
Now that you brought it up... what is it with French coffee? I was in the south of France last summer and I never remember the coffee being that bad. I was really disappointed.
The photo makes it look inviting...
Hi Loulou - Just stopping by to say "hello." I'm getting very excited about my upcoming trip to France. I'll endure the bad coffee. I just want to be there.
I have to have that coffee...I even smell it ! Lovely photograph!
JackieYou should definitely check out the cheese shop in Providence. You might find some great ones to bring home and enjoy. Good luck!VeronicaThanks for the recommendations. :)I do love Illy coffee!EileenThe petit café I've had in France just seems to be lacking in richness and flavor. I think that the espresso in Italy is so much better!SandyThanks!CathyI'm sure that you're getting excited! Tell me again - when do you come over? SophieMerci! Glad you like it.
Apparently lots of cafes have espresso machines that come with a contract to supply coffee, so they are tied in to a particular brand. Many of these companies supply Robusta coffee because it's cheaper. Hence the declining quality of French coffee. No Italian would be seen dead drinking Robusta -- it's Arabica all the way!Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be any way of reliably telling in advance which cafes serve Arabica coffee -- except looking for the Illy logo of course!
Beautiful. I really do love your pictures.
VeronicaAh, so that's why the coffee is so blah! Good to know. I'll look for Illy and I love Lavazza too.AllieThanks! Your comment made me smile. I appreciate it!
