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 
called
  lulu'
on the boulevard saint germain in the 5ème

 we'd met up with my friend and former blogger
 steve
 aka
 travelingbutnotinlove

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

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

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



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



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




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


this?
it was my brunch
delish!

  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!

  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!

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

  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!
