After our marvelous visit to the d’Orsay, we got coffees and a late lunch at Eggs & Co. Our vegetarian Olivia found some great places that catered to her egg appetites. This was a cozy place to eat. You are greeted with a small cafe in the entrance where you can order to-go or buy local artisan treats (honey, bread, mushrooms). Past the checkout counter you go up a flight of spiral stairs and find yourself transported to a cozy french cottage in the country side.
The menu featured eggs (duh); quiches, omelettes, sandwiches and more. We all had some beautifully foamed cafe au laits and omelettes for lunch.
After our visit we walked to the Eiffel tower. We got in line around early evening and were up to the top just at the tail end of sunset. The line was long, but it was worth every minute of waiting. I’d never been up the Eiffel in my travels to Paris before, only stood below it and been enchanted by its iron curly-Qs, it’s curves, its playful timelessness.
Reaching the first section the views were breath-taking. Then reaching the top, the views were spectacular! All Paul and I could repeat to each other was how beautiful Paris is at night. The entire city was lit up with little jewels. From this view, it truly made sense why Paris is called the “City of Lights”!
Paul and I made sure to kiss once we got to the top. It was a wonderful experience to have with my love ❤
