In the evenings this is one of the most happening little corners in Paris, and not just the Left Bank. Right where rue de Seine and rue du Buci intersect there's always a whirlwind of activity where lovers are meeting, students are grabbing a beer, friends are catching up. There are a number of businesses within this radius that cater to this social activity and this is one of them. But throw aside the evening for a second, and imagine you are an early-riser. Ahhhh... now is when you will see a completely different side to this dynamic little vortex of activity. The fresh vegetable stand is open, the street jazz quartet is gone, the little old ladies and others from the neighborhood are out walking their dogs and getting their groceries before the tourists arrive. That's the kind of slice of life you'll see when you have breakfast here.
10 Rue de Buci
- Breakfast: "Expect a continental breakfast which consists mostly of bread, jam and butter and hot coffee and milk in various forms (cafe au lait, espresso). And if you ask nicely you might even get some fresh orange juice. But feasting your eyes on this authentic slice of St. Germain-des-Pres life during the early hours of the day will have you feeling Parisian through to your bones."
- Best for Breakfast Because: This very Parisian little neighborhood is calm and feels genuine in the morning though by evening it's in the crosshairs of the international demi-monde.
