breakfasting in beaune…


€5.50 for a formule breakfast with a big café au lait – and with a fine view of the Place Carnot too – you can hardly get the coffee for that price, back home in Switzerland!

Agree? Disagree? Anything you'd like to add?

    Looks like it must be the brasserie where I run into Jacques Lardière every year when I stop by for a crème and croissant.

      Jacques definitely wasn’t there at 08h00 today 😉

        No, he’s out in Oregon, I should imagine. I should have clarified that I run into him in Beaune in November.

    I ran into Etienne Grivot in his butcher’s in Nuits St Georges first thing one morning after the vendange 3 or 4 years ago. Reckon he hadn’t bargained for an English vendangeur asking him how the Grivot vendange had gone whilst we both queued 🙂

      I was in the butchers too today – but only me, no wine-makers!
