L’Eclair recommended Cafe in Paris

Monday, April 15th, 2013

.

There is nothing more Parisian than taking a few moments to sit with an espresso in a traditional Paris Cafe.  But if you are visiting the city for just a few days, L’Eclair is definitely an option to consider.

.

.

On first glance, it appears to be just another typical Paris cafe, with a busy terrace, strategically distressed decor and a lively crowd of young Frenchies chatting over cheap glasses of wine.” But is not, actually L’Eclair offers something a bit more ambitious than just another Parisian Cafe.  The  Gin Tonics offered at this Cafe are really special : Beefeater, Beefeater 24, Plymouth, Plymouth Navy and Hendricks are just some of them…

.

.

…but there are a lot more things to discover about this wonderful place, so take a break and visit L’Eclair Cafe!
