Café le Petit Pont, Saint Michel, Paris, France

After a bit of a siesta after a Saturday of eating and drinking I headed off to see what restaurants were hiding in the laneways of Saint Michel to see what the options were. I strolled down to Boulevard Saint-Germain, up Rue Dante and Rue de l’Hotel Colbert and Quai du Montebello but nothing really took my fancy, and those that did were full. Shakespeare and Company was closed for the day and I’d started to lose hope.

Unfortunately the seats facing Place Du Trocadero and the Eiffel Tower were taken so I was shown to a small table on the side.
