sunday brunch american style

its hard to believe 
just a week ago yesterday
 i was with my friends
 having sunday brunch
 an american brunch
 at that 
in a cafe 
on the boulevard saint germain in the 5ème

 we'd met up with my friend and former blogger

 i know
 it will seem strange to many
 that there i was in paris
 a city known for its food
 having an american brunch
you see 
my idea
 of spending time in paris
 or anywhere in this world
 is to experience
 it like a native of that city
 so we did

we met outside notre dame
 wandered through the bird and flower market
heading off to brunch

 i will share photos of both notre dame and the birds
another day
here and over
 through my eyes 

genie speaks french extremely well
mary gets by
i needed
english menu

all the waiters in paris are adorable n'est pas?

oh yesterday
 i mistakenly
to the wrong blog
for the correct link to genie's blog

it was my brunch


  1. Yes, love impersonating a local! I'm getting a contact high on your trip

  2. Wedding dress adelaide Wedding DJ Mitchy Burnz located in Adelaide South Australia. A hospitality professional with over 10 years experience as an Adelaide Dj.

  3. What fun. When we were in France I found that even though I don't know a lick of French I could figure out the menu's from watching the Food Network channel. Funny!

  4. Sounds like you had a great time. Shame your trip was cut short but I imagine you made the most of the time you had in Paris. x

  5. This looks great So looking forward to more of your photos I really hope I can see Paris for my own eyes one of these days! Have a GREAT day!!

  6. Daryl, yum! I love going out for breakfast! Even if it's not in Paris!
    I couldn't think of a more perfect morning as the one you described! Notre Dame and brunch!

  7. So glad to see that you've returned! I'll be reading all of your posts to gather the news concerning your trip! From this first that I've read, it appears you had a swell time!

    (My! I'm using a lot of exclamation points today!)

  8. Non, when in Paris, you eat what the Parisians eat. You can eat américain any day when you get home!

  9. You have the best time,no matter where you are....Notre Dame, markets and brunch...what did you do in the afternoon?

  10. Oh my! I certainly did look serious! What a great day it was... well, any day is great in Paris.


  11. Haha! loved the French 'pout' Genie ;) Looking forward to more, much, much more Daryl..

  12. That waiter. And the food. Perhaps we need to plan a Blog Fest Paris Edition.

  13. What ... no croissant? Actually, it's probably best to stick with familiar fare when traveling. And that breakfast does look delicious. As does the waiter.

  14. French bread every day for breakfast would be my ideal breakfast there!
