Great theme photos. I love these kinds of pedestrian areas filled with shops and cafes...we have so few of them here!

Wonderful photos. I love walking along little alleys and laneways - there is always something of interest.
Cheers.

Great Pick!

Paulie said...

I see a place I could spend the whole day looking at things and never want to go home!

J Bar said...

This looks like a great place.

Good one! I love passages. I think I'd like to be sitting there in the Passage St. Pierre.

Olivier said...

bien vu, deux pour le prix d'un, cela rattrapera le fait que j'ai complètement zappé le theme du mois ;o))

Arcades are great, the first indoor shopping malls? Can you remember the arcades in Cardiff?

Dina said...

Oh right! French uses the word passage for those nice places.
Thanks for reminding me of another world.

raf said...

Indeed, a delightful double whammy, Ciel! Looks like my kind of place and Il Passagio beckons.

Chuck Pefley said...

Ah, finally a passageway! I can tell because it says it is -:)

Small City Scenes said...

Very clever of you to combine the two. Smarty!!! MB

VP said...

I love this picture and its framing, probably beacause I took an almost identical one... A very nice passage, I hope the restaurant is almost as good.

Hilda said...

LOL, very clever choice of the signs! It's almost a disappointment to see you post a real passageway. ;)

Un restau italien! j'adore! et j'aime aussi ces petits chemins de traverse, un peu à l'écart du monde mais très animés, on s'y sent bien!

Tash said...

Great one! Now we know for sure where the origin of "passage" comes from. Looks like a nice passage to spend time in.

This looks like a quintessentially French passageway.

Kim said...

Deux pour le prix d'un indeed! I love that it says the name twice, too. When I first saw what the theme was for March my first thought was of lovely French passageways and I went to Google maps to find my favorite one in Paris and revisited it through the magic of "street view." :-) Your passageway looks very chic, and the restaurant logo very contemporary.

Is it true you are heading this way? The grapevine is humming, but I hadn't heard directly. Let me know.

un passage dans un passage ??? c'est pas le début d'un labyrinthe ?

Jilly said...

Wonderful! I adore the passages of Paris. Makes me want to BE there.

B SQUARED said...

Nice finds. Sure looks like your weather has improved.

Julie ScottsdaleDailyPhoto.com said...

great find and always fun to see a play on words. I need to get back to france soon and enjoy the wonderful restaurants and passageways

Renee said...

extra points for two excellent passageways!

Cergie said...

J'ai éclaté de rire en ouvrant ta page : pardon mais le passage chez St Pierre le plus tard possible Steup !
J'aime bien les passages, pourquoi crois tu que mon blog porte ce nom ? -pontin < Pontoise < pont
J'ai un autre blog à parution aléatoire qui s'appelle "Passerelle"
Au passage, une question : elle est bonne là la pate à pizza ?

Rob and Mandy said...

Brava! Due per il prezzo di uno! Il est bon, le restau?

Louis la Vache said...

Two passages for the price of one!
Good choice, Ciel!

Sharon Van Lieu said...

Leif Hagen said...

Gosh - you went one step further and found a passageway which was even labeled as such in case we couldn't figure that out! Bravo on your theme day photo!

James said...

Very nice photos. I would like to be walking there right now.

Tammie Lee said...

there is something enticing about passageways that make me want to walk down them. Wonderful photos.

Buck said...

Oho! Love the double passage! I don't think anyone else has found a passageway named Passage besides you, brava!

Allan Alexandre said...

Tiens je ne connais pas ce passage; la nuit c'est fermer ou pas.

Halcyon said...

Great choice for the theme day, especially the resto called Passage. Original!
