I brave the windy chill through the Palais Royal for a sip of the legendary Café Kitsuné. I take an espresso to go because strolling through the hallway of antique boutiques and lovely rose gardens is a must when I’m here.
Each time I come back to Paris, this is the first place I visit. Nothing else gives me the feeling of being back in my city than exploring these familiar grounds with a coffee cup in hand watching children scooter through the art columns of Buren and older gentlemen read a book by the rose bushes, and of course the Parisian woman doing her discrete shopping. Oh Paris, always happy to be back!
