Daily Photo Theme Day: A Typical Breakfast

A typical Monte Carlo breakast, at least in this café, Le Royalty, is a cup of coffee and a cigarette. Croissants are available but no one has ordered one. Le Royalty is in rue Princesse Caroline (the pedestrian street of Monte Carlo) opposite the Port.

This is really very typical, pleasant too.

Lavenderlady said...

Oh, my...it has been so long since I have had a cigarette with my breakfast. A good thing I quit.

Sally said...

Typical, yes, but do you mind if I go down to Menton for some bread, or maybe an escargot???

Looks like the perfect place for people watching!

jb said...

Nice legs...
Oh, I'm supposed to be looking at the table.
I can just feel the warmth of the sun. Excellent image

GMG said...

Beautiful breakfast: no danger for diet intentions! Don't drink coffe, don't smoke... The only alternative seems to be people watching... and that looks great here... ;)

Hyde DP said...

don't suppose most of us could afford a croissant in Monte Carlo!

Beetle said...

This kind of coffee will be mostly for the German in the afternoon but I,myself don't drink coffee and smoking

Olivier said...

le petit déjeuner au cafe , sur une terrasse, au soleil, c'est vraiment le bonheur total (sauf la cigarette ;o) )

Emily Lin said...

I love coffee! What a wonderful sunny day it is! The red ashtray looks seriously cute! =)

Fernando said...

lynn said...

That's right Abraham. I think the coffees (noisettes) cost 1.50 each and my friend and I sat there through a couple - or more! - so a 1 euro tip didn't seem excessive.

Zsolt said...

i like the "leaving legs" on the photo. Such way it has a whole story

Rambling Round said...

This would never last me til 9 a.m.! Do they take a mid-morning break and eat something then?

Tomate Farcie said...

That's all they aat for breakfast? Hmmm. that's not much. I think a piece of fruit instead of the cigarette would be good, but hey, to each its own, I guess ;)

jelvistar said...

The coffee looks so good!

Felicia said...

Not exactly a healthy breakfast...maybe you can tell that I have a preference for Menton!

Helen said...

Yes, I always have coffee with my breakfast.

Susan said...

That's my breakfast every morning too!

Kim said...

A sophisticate's chic breakfast. No calories. . . Great subject for our theme day!

A streamlined morning intake. Are there two sugar packets per cup? Here, the normal allotment is 1 and I have to beg and plead (all the while looking very ashamed about having such a sweet tooth) for more.

Waldo Oiseau said...

I miss those petit packets of sugar!

You know, I use to love the feel of a good ceramic mug of coffee, but when they came out with those paper cups. A la Starbucks, I have to admit that's how I prefer mine. I was at a meeting at a hotel recently where they had china cups for coffee, and on the side, Starbucks-like paper cups. Only two people were using the china. I think this is the Starbucks effect. Their cafediem comes with a taste of culture. Whereas many are just not use to the authentic culture of the china.

Great shot. The cup of coffee I could go for, the cigarette, not really my cup of tea but to each her/his own.

Thanks for visiting my NorthBayPhoto blog. Sorry to hear that you gave your maple syrup away but I'm sure your Canadian vet was extremely happy to receive it!

Marie said...

Oh no, no cigarette please :-))

Anu said...

Great shot! But that's kinda pre breakfast. Indian breakfast is traditionally heavy though the youth are now changing habits and most of them will not have heavy stuff like parathas for breakfast.
