Parisian People-Watching Paradise

It has been said that the preferred Parisian past-time is good quality people-watching. If I didn’t believe it before coming to Paris, I definitely believe it now!

I took an excursion around the city and found myself looking for lunch on the Ile Saint-Louis, a small island in the middle of the Seine River. I picked a cute little restaurant called Brasserie de L’Isle Saint-Louis and took a seat outside. This place is set up perfectly for people watching. Benches and tables line the sidewalk facing the streets which have a steady flow of people.

Just a heads up, if you intend to eat lunch make sure you sit in the right area! I chose to sit on a bench along the sidewalk only to find out that area was only for ordering drinks, while a separate patio is intended for full menu service.

Bon appétit!
