Our last day in Paris was a half day before our flight and we had just a couple more things to do. The first thing was breakfast. I have to say that of all the things I miss in America, going to breakfast is near the top of my list. Ever since we got married we have loved rolling ut of bed and going to get taquitos from Whataburger or somewhere to get pancakes and bacon. I could wax rhapsodic all day on the merits of All Good Cafe in Deep Ellum. We don’t do that here. No one has biscuits or pancakes or real bacon so we just don’t bother. We stumbled across a restaurant in the Latin Quarter near our hotel called Breakfast in America and it was a diner style American breakfast place and I almost cried. We saved it for our last meal in Paris after we had had our fill of steak frites and crepes and croissants. It was soooooo good. I know when most of you go to Paris, finding bacon will not bring you to tears but it was so wonderful that I was beside myself with glee.
I was excited about the mediocre diner coffee and something that you never get in Europe: free refills!
Mike thought I was a bit too crazy excited about breakfast. (He didn’t exactly leave any bacon on his plate though)
After a delicious breakfast we headed out and walked down the river one last time to the Museum d’Orsay. In my less than professional opinion, this was a far better museum to spend time in than the Louvre. Many more artists that the average person would have heard of and much more manageable to navigate. It was built in an old train station and the place itself is magnificent.
I like elephants.
Then we cabbed it back to our hotel to grab our stuff and headed to the airport. We had the best little weekend away and the best Valentine’s Day! We loved Paris and can’t wait to go back again.
