"ATTENTION: DIFFERENT PRICES FOR A SMALL COFFEE" Dining and Drinking Tip by nygaston
Dining and Drinking, Paris: 47 reviews and 31 photos
You must know there are generally 2 or 3 prices in a café or a bar:
1/ bar, comptoir (the cheapest price, but often w/o any chair)
2/ salle (you have a table and a chair, and can stay for hours)
3/ terrace (you can seat outside), very expensive in the touristic areas, but it's so nice in summer
and sometimes, there is a fee after 9pm...
Examples of prices for one expresso café (in 2003-2006):
1/ 1 to 2 Euros
2/ 2 to 4 Euros
3/ 4 to 7 Euros, it's sometimes the price for a small lunch in Paris !!!!!
Unique Suggestions: IMPORTANT
You must always watch your values (cell, money, ipod, iphone, etc...) and your bags when you are at the terrasse or in the metro
Mostly if you sit near the door !!!
Some "french" boys are very very fast to catch your purse then run away ....
Fun Alternatives: Bring few cash with you, just enough for each day.
You can buy some drink, ice cream, cakes then go to the Luxembourg Garden.
Many chairs are available, it's like at Bryant Park - NYC, and there are music concerts in summer (week-end) at 10am and 2pm.
or walk along the Seine river or on the Island (Ile de la cite).
