À la Bastille


In Paris, everyone has their favorite cafés, and this is one of mine.

Café de la Bastille
8 Place de la Bastille 75011

When I was growing up my father used to burst into this refrain from Nini Peau d'Chien (Nini Dogskin), an old French song:

Lyrics / music by legendary Montmartre personnage Aristide Bruant

À la Bastille
On aime bien
Nini-Peau-d'chien:
Elle est si bonne et si gentille!
On aime bien (Qui ça?)
Nini-Peau-d'chien (Où ça?)
À la bastille
