Recently on a France tourism website, I saw advice that visitors should skip the hotel breakfast.
In the small French hotels where we have stayed, I would definitely advise otherwise. Breakfast usually costs 7-8 euros, and it's definitely the right way to start a morning of sightseeing.
Sit down at one of the small rectangular tables and the server is sure to ask what you would like to drink. I always answer cafe au lait or if I'm in Paris, cafe creme. They'll bring a pitcher of coffee along with a small pitcher of steamed milk.
Ah, see. Already better than getting a cup of coffee in a crowded cafe.
You can mix the coffee and the milk, and it equals a few cups of coffee.
Earl asks for tea and they bring him a pitcher of tea.
Next comes the basket of croissants and rolls, along with jam, butter and sometimes cheese.
A croissant each, a roll each and we're prepped for a day enjoying France.
When we don't eat in the hotel, we often have trouble finding breakfast. We can easily find coffee in a cafe, but if we want a croissant or a pastry, we have to get in line at a bakery.
Either way, that breakfast ends up costing us more for less food.
Have you ever had a good breakfast in France? Do you eat in the hotel or find a restaurant?
