Petite déjeuner - Breakfast
I'm trying to get into everyday life here in Paris. So today I got up, walked down the 66 steps and strolled around the quartier (neighborhood) looking for a boulanger (bakery) and a place to get some fresh fruit. I didn't have to go far as you can see! Words cannot describe how awesome the croissants were, the brioche au chocolat was out of this world and the strawberries - from Spain - were pretty good, too.
Parisian apartment living typically means small kitchens and small refrigerators. This forces you into buying fresh food. It's pretty typical to purchase what you will eat for dinner on the way home from work, for example.
