sunday morning's at sète
What I really love about cafés in France is the relaxed attitude towards bringing your own food. It's more than tolerated, it's actively encouraged. We often go to Sète on a Sunday morning & always to the same café, waiting for a table if needs be. We bring pastries brought from a local boulangerie & sometimes stay long enough to order a plate of oysters & mussels from les Halles across the road. The waiter then brings us each a glass of wine that he's chosen, always a different variety for me & another for F.
I spotted these biscuits on our last visit. As a child we called them 'snail biscuits' & I spent many an afternoon baking & promptly eating them.
