Au café

I’ve been talking a lot recently to people about my favorite DC coffee spots. Luckily we have some really good ones: The Coffee Bar, Dolcezza, Blind Dog Cafe, Filter, Big Bear Cafe. I’d happily spend a few hours at any of these, reading, chatting with a friend, and enjoying a great cup. But because of all this coffee talk, I also have been reminded recently of the cafés in Paris I used to visit. The ones down tiny curved streets that my friends and I would discover between classes. The ones where I learned to sip espresso and like it (and not just only because it was the cheapest option). The café near my homestay apartment that I could frequent a few times a week, pretend I’m a regular and not feel so far away from home. Ok, allons-y!

    I’m not a big coffee drinker, but these seem like good places for me to start in a few weeks! And you used the cafes in Paris as an escape from the stress of being abroad, but it seems you can also think about them now as an occasional escape from real life :)

    Echoing one of your commenters- thank you for the pics. They are gorgeous. Reminded me of why I love Paris so much. I can’t wait to go back.
