Le petit déjeuner Illustration

IMG_6415awebYum, how do you eat your breakfasts?


IMG_6422awebThere is a French couple whom I befriended while working in the NGO world in Niamey. One time, the wife, Elodie, and I went out to grab some croissants, pain au chocolate and pain aux raisins at a local boulangerie. And then we went back to her office. To drink French pressed coffee.


Man oh man, I didn’t realize just how much I missed those breakfasts! Buttery caffeine bliss! My favorite spot in Aix for le petit déj is Café Le Verdon, especially on a summer or early autumn morning. Near a bookshop, watching vendors spread out their earthly harvests in front of my eyes at the biweekly marché and the taste of café au lait swirling in my mouth.


Where is your favorite breakfast nook? And a good morning to you!
