Paris: Cafe Life

Does Grande Latte trip off your tongue? When in Paris, instead of heading for the Starbuck's drive thru, you'll find yourself sitting at a cafe enjoying a cafe creme.

I spent a delightful hour with my husband here at Les Deux Magot sipping coffee and planning our week in Paris. This is the famous cafe on the Place Saint Germain des Pres where Jean Paul Sartre would write for hours.

How would you order your favorite coffee in French? Take a peek at this helpful translation & pronunciation guide here.

I so miss the outdoor cafes here, nothing like sitting outside people watching and having a good cup of coffee.

Haha! Les Deux Magots!! One mustn't forget the plural article my dear Anne.

Pour moi, un cafe long, avec lait chaud, s'il vous plait et j'ai pris deux sucres aussi!

(I haven't checked the guide :))

Oops! I've inserted the "Les" now - you're completely right! Now drink up!
