Breakfast on île Saint-Louis


One of the things I always do when in Paris, even though I'm admittedly not too fond of the coffee in regular cafés, is that I go for petit déjeuner (aka. breakfast) in one of them. Café, croissant et jus d'orange pressé seems to be the perfect way to begin the day in a city like Paris. Le Saint-Régis is a beautiful café located on the tip of the island of Île Saint-Louis in the very centre of the city, and I've been coming here since I first moved to the city in 2012 (however not too often over the past few years). The other day Jonas and I met up at 6am to photograph the sunrise (which we quite like to do) from the island and sat down to have breakfast at Saint-Régis after.
