Friends and a French Cafe





Ooh La La! My friend Trish transported me to France yesterday morning. We "brunched" at Douceur de France, a tiny pastry shop and cafe. The smell of chocolate croissants wafted out as we opened the door. The assortment of pastries was beautiful. This small restaurant carries more than just sweet indulgences. It serves breakfast, lunch and mouthwatering take away. Check out the soup in the mason jars - what a great idea! Individual quiches are made to go as well. The sandwiches and panini looked great. We settled into a table on the patio, and both of us opted for veggie omelets, accompanied by croissants and strawberry jam. The cappuccino was perfect. And just like a meal in France, we were never hurried - we had lots of time to talk about big ideas and enjoy the company of each other. Take a look at my French place at www.douceurdefrance.com or grab a friend and explore a French cafe in your town.

Hi, Nancy! I'll be in Atlanta next month and would love to visit this French cafe. Where is it? Thanks, Laura

Hey Laura! Thanks for asking - it's on a side street near the Marietta square. Address is 367 Glover Street. Not easy to find - but worth the drive.
