France. The city of lights and a dream for all of us in love. If you are not in love with someone, you are in love with the country. The baguettes, the croissants and foie gras, red wine and blue cheese on the grass in a park surrounded by roses and the alluring air of elegance. Elegance in the people, in the streets, in facades and yes, in the food.
This is how I feel about France. And I am delighted that there is a piece of it closer to home for me. The early morning croissants at Cafe Lyon are just as good as the ones that you would get from Paris or Lyon. I know, I assure you. A boulangerie in the morning and a French restaurant by night. Cafe Lyon is my favorite for early breakfast and nice for a slow evening with live music and good food.
