Breakfast in France — 15 Comments

  1. The French really do not do breakfast-it is more about the breads. I never took breakfast at the hotels as it was always so expensive.

  2. Welcome back!

    Did you have crepes? I had them every morning, while going for a long walk to explore the city. I treasure my morning rituals while traveling.

    Can’t wait to hear stories of your trip – what type of tour did you do?

  3. Thank you for whisking me away for a few minutes to France. I love the bread and lots of fresh fruit! My stepdaughter just return from studying for a semester there and she said the bread is outstanding-much, much better than our American bread.

  4. Joy, when we go to France we just love to have soft rolls with cheese and jambon for breakfast – something we don’t have at home at all (although we could but we have toast and jam instead)

  5. What a great post, I’m looking forward to checking out your French thoughts, experiences and photos over the next few weeks. I’m heading to France next week, so my thoughts are on France even more than normal. We don’t stay in hotels in France, we’ve hired an apartment in Paris, I’m looking forward to our breakfasts so much- mainly fruit,yoghurt, and pastries.

  6. Thanks for sharing your breakfast! A slotted cutting board is such a good idea! My daughter spent a semester in France and was surprised that her host family drank only Nescafe. I was surprised, too, because I expected her to have something like a dark French Roast coffee freshly ground and brewed in a French press every morning! Coffee may be the one thing that we do better than the French when it comes to breakfast?

  7. This post is making me HUNGRY!! ๐Ÿ™‚
    I find it so interesting how a simple meal like breakfast can be so different in various countries. My husband and I went to Spain a few years ago, and were struck by that as well. Western Europeans definitely don’t seem to fall into the Cheerios-and-milk routine the way Americans do. ๐Ÿ™‚
