Early Morning at the Café

A friend needed a ride into work this morning early. Because all of my friends & neighbors are always so kind to me when I am without a car, now that I have the use of one, I was more than happy to oblige.

It was a nice opportunity to get up early & go into St. Antonin before most of the town was awake. The early morning light was beautiful.

There were at least a few people already at the cafe having their petit déjeuné.

What a treat to start the day with a coffee & a croissant. I am afraid I enjoyed mine thoroughly before I thought to take a photo.

But I did get a shot of this French couple enjoying theirs.

Dogs are always welcome in the cafe & there were a few this morning too.

Several people walked by with their bread fresh from the boulangerie. Not only baguettes, these dense crusty round loaves are wonderful as well.

How pretty & quiet St. Antonin is in the early morning hours. So peaceful!

Soon all of these empty chairs will be filled & another busy summer day will be in full swing.

Have a great weekend everyone!


  1. Lovely and sweet pictures Sally: have a nice day :)

  2. Wow Sally! ....... this is beautiful and so immediate. The round loaf looks wonderful.

    Happy weekend to you too!

  3. Isn't it funny that the French, as a rule, do not get moving early in the morning. I love cafes, and breakfast in cafes is even better. I searched on my iPhone for St. Antonin to see what part of France you are in, but it gave me about six different St. Antonins to choose from. I guessed "Gers, Mid-Pyrenees" was I right? Any way, lovely to share breakfast with you.

  4. so dreamy. nice captures. i can imagine your day. hope all is well in your artistic point of view world.
