Etonnante facade avec cette figure decorative. Les bonnes odeurs de la boulangerie doivent monter chez lui.

i don't think i would be looking up. i'd have my eyes leaping from one treat to another and never notice the treat above the bakery windows.

It is a nice face that goes with the nice balcony and railing.

Pretty indeed.

Jacob said...

One thing I always want to know about a pretty face is whether or not there is any substance behind it, so I must ask about the food: Is it good?

Silly question! I know it's good!

We have almost nothing like these shops. Maybe a handful in New York and Boston. Nothing close here if fly-over country. But then I'll be in France in three weeks.

I love the ribbons and bust. We don't see that style much, if at all. It is impressive that there is so much adornment in a small and simple business like a bakery.

Les volets sont fermes, le patissier a pris ses vacances du mois d'aout.

Closed shutters, empty balcony, but I can smell the aroma of the baking bread below...(teasing you)

Well I can look at this gorgeous patisserie and not get too upset today Ciel, because I was tres bad today and ate two pastries, oh they were delicious, just like your picture!!

Nice balcony and interesting face. It may be hard to live above a patisserie: a continue temptation!

Doug Hickok said...

Oooo, yes, I love the face and the interesting play of light and shadow. You caught the sun at just the right angle to reveal the wonderful textures and designs above this bakery.

Beautiful details. :)

... and shuttered balcony.

EG Wow said...

I really like the ironwork on the balcony but it looks a little busy with the shutters behind it.

Kaori said...

I wonder who that is? Very pretty balcony as well :D

Loree said...

A very lovely facade for a patisserie.
