A Petit Dejeuner

No, it has nothing to do with simian anatomy. We’re talking breakfast in Paris. We stopped by Blackburn Coffee for some tasty treats – coffee, orange juice, eggs and salad for €12.

A few quick observations:

  • Fresh squeezed orange juice is amazing, I do not drink it enough.
  • Paris is not on the “I like my coffee raw” kick that San Francisco seems to be on. These beans were a true medium roast, and it made for a smooth, tasty cup with none of that crazy sourness that seems to be in vogue stateside.
  • “Scrambled eggs” in Paris is so much more. It was cheesy and herby and other things I cannot properly describe.


  1. I love your blog. Can you tell me what C12 means in terms of American dollars?

  2. Hi Rick! Today’s exchange rate is 1 USD = 1.12 Euro, so 12 Euros would be $13.40. Glad you like the blog. Come visit!
