I don't need to post reflections photos, because you do such a fantastic job...these are truly lovely photos!

Woody said...

I really like the combination of the reflections and the tree in the first shot. Thanks for posting the second because it helps put the tree in perspective. It's a neat idea!

Halcyon said...

Encore une très belle réfection. Tu as vraiment l'œil.

Bon weekend !

Interesting color compostition. Nice combination.

You always do a good job with the Weekend Reflections meme.
«Louis», though mostly a coffee hound, would like to try this salon de thé.

I like the complexity of that first image very much.

Travel time is almost upon you. Buon viaggio!

merci de ta visite...et dire que j'ai moi aussi déjeuné là-bas et que j'aurais tout simplement pu te saluer en t'apportant un peu d'iode ...à une prochaine fois encore que Quimper et sa "crèperie de Quimper" derrière la mairie ou celle située dans un coin de la place au Beurre serait un endroit plus à notre goût. Nous sommes passés par les escaliers extérieurs pour le toit!
je ne te laisse pas sans te dire que je viens souvent te visiter que j'ai eu peu de temps pour les commentaires depuis noël mais que tes photos sont tout simplement charmantes, pleines de poésie et il y a une recherche esthétique indéniable. Tu as l'oeil

I knew that coffee was some kind of plant, but I didn't expect smoking cups growing amid the branches. Clearly a GMO...

Loree said...

Beautiful reflections. Thanks for visiting my blog.

Nice angles on a lovely window. It's very inviting.

Malyss said...

Superbe, cette photo du haut! On dirait que les plantes envahissent les murs des halles! Je me prendais bien un petit quelque chose dans ce salon de thé, il a l'air bien sympa!

Cergie said...

C'est sobre et charmant comme cadre, j'aime beaucoup l'arbre dont je ne sais ce qu'il est en tout cas ni un caféier ni un chocolatier
:)
Je remarque que regarder les vitrines donne souvent plutôt envie de repartir avec ce qui est dehors, et comme on ne peut pas, on fait ainsi des économies.
Bon ouik à toi !

Yours is the first reflection I've seen. Time for us to find one for tomorrow. Yours is such a nice blend of warmth (the tree) and cold (the glass).

These are really nice. I especially like the reflection of the man in the metal machine in the bottom picture. I can't wait to go to Paris. :)

Suzanne said...

I LOVE this photo. It looks like the building is growing out of the leaves of the tree. How's the coffee?

Paulie said...

Your reflection looks more like a window display! Great colors!

If you drop by my blog, you will see a reflection of two darling birds on the grass/below a tree. I am not doing this meme -- just happened to take a reflection photo.

Xavi said...

It looks like a paintig this nice reflection.

RuneE said...

I bet my wife would have loved a visit there!

Carol said...

Beautiful photos....and great reflections.

brattcat said...

It's as if the cup of coffee is the one magnificent blossom put forth by the tree.

Cezar and Léia said...

that tree is so delicate, it gives a happy touch in all window and scenery.
Dear Ciel,
This place is charming and for sure elegant, you always show beautiful sites there, thanks a lot! :)
hugs

Nice reflection shot. I didn't know which is the reflection and which is the window till I saw the second photo.

Ebie said...

It is a great painting, something that would attract customers!

Great composition on the first one.

Enjoy your weekend!

Carletta said...

Looks like a quaint little cafe.
I love how your composed the first so that the bare branches in the reflection are above the branches of the painted tree.
Lovely image!

Your first shot pays homage to that lovely window with a lovely reflection.

Parfait gros plan pour un reflect qui n'en paraît plus un.
