Paris part 3 - Bon appetite!

Paris is full of places to eat - sit down with a coffee or glass of wine and watch the world go by.  You can find everything from a simple salad to a full blown a la carte feast???

Eating and drinking is a national French pastime and the Parisians down tools and enjoy a 2 hour lunch break as opposed to grabbing a soggy sandwich eaten at their desk.

We enjoyed some fabulous food during our stay, put on a few pounds with the rich dishes and wine (well it was probably the wine that did it???) 

With all the walking around stopping off at a café and enjoying an espresso was something we did quite a lot of - by the way it is un-Parisian to drink a café au lait after 11am but if you can't quite take it black a noisette is the chic thing to drink - espresso with a shot of milk!!!

So here is just a few pics to wet your appetite???
