{Twinkie Breakfasts}

A short but sweet post, but I just had to tell you that my league table of Paris brunches has got a new contender, and she's looking like a winner. While Coutume may serve up a deliciously gourmet breakfast, if you're looking for hearty, hangover-curing fry-ups then you simply must head to Twinkie Breakfasts in the 2nd. 


In one of my latest posts I may have vowed to never again queue at Angelina, no matter how thick & delicious their hot chocolate is, but different rules apply with Twinkie. While Angelina's queue is home to many a tourist looking quite sheepish that they are willing to wait a whole hour for a cup of something sweet, the people who flock to Twinkie are generally young'uns who have heard rumours of the incredibly fresh juice and heartwarming (and bottomless) cups of tea. 


I took Kaat along, and we shared a milestone together - she tried her first cup of proper English tea (two sugars, a good amount of milk - in my humble opinion)! I must admit I was terribly nervous, it's not for everyone - but I think I converted her! It was one of my first cups since being in France (what is it with their lack of fresh milk?!) and such a wonderful feeling to get back into tea-drinking. 


Now to the important stuff.. the food. You can basically ignore most of the menu, as amazing as it looks, because the main players are the American, and the English breakfasts - the key difference being that the American comes with a pancake, whilst the English comes with sausage and beans. I found myself quite torn (being both American & English), and at the last minute blurted out 'L'Americain.' I lived to regret my decision (how can you choose anything over sausage and beans?!) - but hey, we all live and learn. Apart from this fatal error, the breakfast was to die for - and comes complete with freshly pressed juice and a bread basket. They really take care of you at Twinkie! I'll be back soon, and I'll be ordering the English with utter conviction.
