"Sip Code--A Short Guide to the French Cafe Experience"
 
 
French cafés are not just a place, they're a way of life in France. You can drink, eat, converse, read, watch the world go by, even make it your home away from home. For the price of a cup of coffee or glass of wine, your café table and the accompanying cultural panorama belong to you for as long as you like. What a way to "own" some French real estate!
 
But like so many aspects of French culture, it really helps to know some insider tips and info to enjoy your French café time to the fullest. Here are my top 10 recommendations for cracking the French café code. Read on, and make plans to head straight for a café next time you are in France.
 
1) Which café? Wherever you are in France--in a small country village or in bustling Paris--be sure to choose a café with the most French people (i.e. avoid anybody wearing fanny packs, cameras, and tennis shoes). You want to feel like you’'re in France, not at a Starbucks back home.
