Je voudrais un vin chaud: Drinking mulled wine at Merci

February 25, 2011

Anne of Pretavoyager

I had a lovely time browsing Merci when I was in Paris. Did you know that Merci also houses a cafe? It was there that I met up with the lovely and bubbly Anne of Pretavoyager.  It was also here that I flipped my lid and ordered a vin chaud at 10 o’clock in the morning. Yes, you read that correctly, I sipped on hot mulled wine in the wee hours of the morning. The morning sun (what there was of it) was not going to deter my mouth from imbibing the nectar of the winter gods. The mouth wants what it wants and vin chaud is practically non-existant in Korean cafes. Anne looked a little shocked but hey, it was my last day in Paris, what the hell, right? I was a bit sheepish when I asked the waiter if he’d serve vin chaud at that hour, he replied by saying “you must give yourself the pleasure.” I said in my head “oh honey, you have no idea.”

Paris is all about pleasure.

Have a pleasurable weekend.

    My friend took photos of the Merci book shop when she was in Paris last year …. I love it, and I love your choice of morning beverage too !!!

    Miss Mandy, I love vin chaud at any time of the day or night. That cafe is actually the best thing about Merci in my opinion.

    Love Merci – and though I didn’t have vin chaud I did have breakfast at the table in the last pic! Thanks for the blog comment re Maison et Objet hope to be back in September but we’ll see.
