What does the typical French breakfast look like?
Coffee, juice, toast with butter or jam, maybe a soft boiled egg or just a simple croissant are customary. There are sweet mainstays at 4pm too when the French take their goûter (their afternoon snack). But there are more options and perspectives on mealtime in Paris today that challenge how best to start (or break up) the day.
To talk about these moments and more broadly, how foreign concepts are received in Paris, we have two business owners joining us on this episode of The New Paris: Amanda Bankert, a French- trained American baker and co-owner of Boneshaker Doughnuts and Guy Griffin, the Franco-English owner of two coffeeshop-canteens, Café Oberkampf and Café Mericourt.
