Breakfast at Champs Elysées


Sitting down for breakfast at none other than the famous Café George V, I looked around to take in all that I can at that moment. The smell of pastry, the energy of the walkers-by, and that fresh cup of coffee on my table all formed an image from a movie scene. Suddenly, I was taken to watch Holly Golightly with her “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”. I was taken to an era of poise and sparkle. The Parisian charm took me by all senses as I heard people rush to work, the aroma of a regular working day, and suddenly the sounds fade, and time slows down as I enjoy that first sip. The beauty of the working city emerges as that coffee brings me back to that romantic reality. One of the most beautiful streets one could set foot on celebrates history and triumph, as well as theatre, fashion, and haute cuisine; a captivating spot where many have wandered and experienced life with a different taste. Time goes by, and as the day ends, a familiar tune comes to mind as the City of Light gets tucked in. “Moon river, wider than a mile, I’m crossing you in style, someday…” (“Moon River” Breakfast at Tiffany’s)
