Cafe Culture – Slogan or Mantra in Paris

paris_edited-1

At the moment, Paris, The City of Light – is accumulated and gathered up with the lively, exciting and vibrant people like fashion designers, buyers, sellers, agency personnel, models, celebrities, bloggers and fashion lovers from all around the world to celebrate the Autumn/Winter 2015 show in Paris Fashion Week. Right now, the whole Paris is making a top-notch scenario from the spectacular street styles to the delightful trend sets. So, I think, this is the best time to feel – “Be like a Parisian”.

Cafe Culture

Paris is all about the food and it is a saying that the French are very proud about their cuisine and they strive for the best to make perfection in it. Parisians love drinking coffee and they drink a lot. For them, going to Cafe is a cultural phenomenon. Always, Parisians considered Cafe as an institution because it is a base place for them to catch up with friends or any business meets. In addition to that, people spend hours and hours in Cafe by relaxing on the table terraces either by reading books or writing some notes. Also, Parisians don’t think Cafe is a place to sip a cup of coffee but instead they make Cafe as a channel to watch people, glancing the street life, viewing the spectacular monuments, sightseeing the grand looking avenues and enjoying the patterned look of cobble stoned streets.

Start the day by a croissant

Croissants are the best and easily available breakfast snack in Paris and it’s undoubtedly, an absolute real triumph. It is the heart and soul of the breakfast pastries and it is accompanied with the freshly brewed coffee. The home-made flaky, softy and mouth-watering buttery pastries are freshly baked at each and every corner of the Patisseries and Bakeries. Indulging in a warm croissant with jam is a real pleasure and Parisians are the pioneers in attaining it.

Pain Au Chocolat 

Another rich version of croissant family is pain au chocolat. What an innovation! Just two sticks of chocolate covered with croissant dough which leads to the fulfilling satisfaction – Genius! Parisians are the true champions in making it.
