Coffee with Shakespeare

Once Sharon & Emma had completed the cooking course and I’d finished my bike ride, we met up at the Shakespeare & Co bookstore. I’m still amazed at the irony that one of the worlds best English language bookstores is right in the middle of the beating heart of the francophone universe. Sharon bought a couple of books…..

I decided to grab my second coffee of the day there. The cafe isn’t too bad, the coffee was certainly good by Paris standards, not quite as good as my first one this morning. In some ways the cafe is just like a Shakespeare play. Long… Hamlet type long. I waited in line so long to order my coffee, I think the King of Denmark actually died whilst I was waiting.

The coffee queue at the cafe attached to the bookstore. Sharon in the queue near the end.


The coffee was ok, even if ordering it took forever
