Cafe Marly


Cafe Marly's terrace

Changed the clothes and was ready to have a little walk in Paris.
As the French lunch time was already over,
desided to grab something in a cafe.

Chose a stylish cafe in the Louvre,
Cafe Marly

Got a nice table with a view of the Louvre pyramid

Some terminology:
Cafe
There are by no means as people in other countries might imagine them
to be but are primarily places
where both coffee and alcoholic drinks are served.
The range of foods served throughout the day
generally comprises simple dishes and small meals
such as croque monsieur, salad,
and when in season, moules-frites, mussels with french fries.
Sidewalk terraces are very much part of the large cafes
on the Parisian boulevards,
with chairs and tables set up outside in the open.
The terraces offer the best views of the hustle and bustle
of the capital and its inhabitants.
Cafes open early in the morning
and most shut at the earliest around nine in the evening.
