Parisians love to go to cafes and restaurants. Well, most of us do, but the Parisians have seemingly endless choices of ridiculously quaint, cute, charming, atmospheric and any other adjective you can think of, places to dine. I never get tired of photographing them, not to mention eating in them as well. We ate lunch at the cafe in the first photograph which is located on Rue Cler, a pedestrian-only street that is travel guru Rick Steves' favorite street in Paris. At the bottom is the interior of Chartier, our personal favorite restaurant. It's been around for over a hundred years, is inexpensive, and very informal. Occasionally, one feels a little rushed because there's virtually no wait until the food starts arriving. Although no Michelin star establishment, the atmosphere more than compensates. No reservations...just show up, stand in line for a few minutes, and you're in. All photographs taken with the Sony RX 100 3.
