    As a French person, I apologize for the way that woman treated you. French people can be very rude to non French speakers as they feel uncomfortable not speaking the other language. Not an excuse for her behavior but oh well. I'm glad you enjoyed our patisserie!!

    I love coffee but NOT bitter coffee or any expression because expression is concentrated dark roasted coffee usually. I don't like sweet coffee but I do like a light roast black ora light or maybe alight-medium roast coffee with cream. Real real. Next time get the Americano. Far less bitter

    the real best croissant is more more crunchy (and breaking apart everywhere) than this one you have eat. try croissant with isigny butter, i prefer eat with hot chocolate not a coffee or with ham and gruyere (cheese)

    Just to explain to everyone why french people seem arrogant. Being a french person myself i can tell you that a lot of people in different parts of France don't really like people in Paris they are so locked in their lives of work that they don't even care about anyone else but saying that FRENCH people are arrogant is not alright. It's because of these arrogant pricks that french people who are not arrogant get treated as arrogant even do it's just because a lot of tourists come to Paris and experience theses pretentious and unlikable people so please if you ever encounter them just keep in mind that a lot of french people also disliking them and It's always nice seeing tourists visiting.

    You are so funny !! Every once in awhile another foodie’s video catches my eye, but I always come back to you. I can depend on you being fun, and honest about the food you are eating. Here in the US you can buy baguettes at most grocery stores now. You do have to feel it to see if it is fresh. Your idea about meat and cheese is a good one. If I’m having an Italian dinner, or just a salad I like to slice it in 1 inch slices and brush garlic butter on it. Wrap it up in aluminum foil and bake for 15 minutes. It goes with a lot of meals and everyone loves it. It’s great with a hearty soup too.

    They probably didn't have an American style coffee maker, just the french press and an espresso maker, the choices available were an Americano or an espresso. A safer bet would be to ask for pressed coffee- they probably make this type of coffee, even if it's just for the staff- amd it's far more drinkable for a non coffee drinker.

    Mike you have to drink espresso immediately after its made. It's meant to be drunk like a shot but a little bit more refined. It has to be drunk hot not taken away

    American cafe is a lot of water with little cafe, espresso is an Italian style cafe (a lot of cafe with little water) that's why she must have been confused by your "french cafe"...
    French cafe used to be really bad and now it's just bad (very bitter, they still don't understand that to make a good cafe you have to mix different varieties, like you do to make a good perfume)

    Pierre Hermé's macarons are the best in Paris. "Le Grenier à Pain" is a good spot for a first experience in eating "baguette and all kinds of "viennoiseries". And for coffee, better go and drink it in a Starbucks in France to avoid disappointements.

      Not all French people are like that. Just look at this thread, and you can see about five or six different french people apologizing for the a-hole waitress and saying that she gave French people a bad rap. That said, Paris is huge tourist destination, and many locals get frustrated by constantly having to deal with crowds and noise etc. which is likely why they can be a bit snippy towards tourists some times. Most people are friendly though, so don't worry if you wanna visit France :)

    I guess I will never travel to Europe because I dislike all milk products especially butter flavor. I was afraid I would have nothing to eat there. For me there was nothing more offensive than a croissant to me with the overwhelming butter flavor. Oh, I always missed my American coffee (medium black) everywhere. It seemed every one else drank the coffee with cream, sugar and other crap in it and they had no idea what real coffee tasted like. They also disdained to make you plain old coffee, especially snooty French. Some country liked Colombia would make you coffee Americano which was hot water added to espresso, it tasted much worst than espresso.
