They call them "Lardons"

Lardons are just what they sound like: fat chunks of bacon-ish ham. And just as tasty as you'd expect. This is how the Quiche Lorraine at Paul appears, with a generous salad and half of a tomato, roasted with herbs á la provéncal(something tells me all those accents are going the wrong directions and over the wrong letters). I usually give my tomato to Dear Wife. Everything else I eat, including all the bread they set on the table. Paul is a famous chain of Parisian bakeries, many of them with very cozy cafés inside. We love eating there, and we love the fact that they all have a non-smoking room.

Be sure to try their Hot Cocoa, or Chocolat Chaud: it is outrageous, like a liquid chocolate bar.

And it's one of the cheapest places to eat in Paris, esp. with such comfortable surroundings. Price for the quiche: 6.60 Euro, or about $7.80 in U.S. dollars.

A steal!
