Happy Place #2: Café de Flore

Sometimes, if I'm feeling a little world-weary or blue, I close my eyes and imagine that I'm making my way up the Rue de Tournon. Just after it turns into the Rue de Seine, I take a left, wander a few more blocks until I find myself in front of the Café de Flore.

 My illustration

I wedge myself between the tables scattered across the sidewalk and into a pink and green ratan chair.



I signal the waiter and order café cremé or champagne....




And watch the world go by...





Day or night... Coffee or bubbles...




A dish of olives or a plate of oeuffs brouillés mixed, jambon et fromage....


With a dear friend or a friendly book...


In real life or just my memory and imagination...it's always one of my happiest of places.




And it's nice to know that even if I couldn't get there today, it will open it's doors again tomorrow.
