Breakfast

Petit-Déjeuner

En France, le petit déjeuner features pastries like le croissant, la brioche, la crêpe and of course le pain au chocolat (without getting into the big debate over la chocolatine) and is usually accompanied by un café, but some people prefer du thé (tea), une infusion (herbal tea), or du jus (juice) instead.

Déjeuner

Déjeuner, or lunch, is always taken between 12 and 2 p.m. and sometimes longer in the sunny south. It is very common for people to enjoy a table red (wine) during a workday lunch.

Casse-Croûte

Casse-Croûte, or goûter, is especially popular with children and traditionally involves pain au chocolat, which dates back to when plain bread was stuffed with squares of chocolate to surprise children after school!

Souper

Souper, ou le dîner, is a light evening meal, often made of “potage”, a soup, or “gratin”, vegetables cooked with a crispy cheese topping.

Dessert

Pardon our French, but these desserts are good AF.
