Café Le Nemours

Café Le Nemours is one of the most famous cafés in Paris. When you round the corner at Rue Richelieu and see it across Place Colette, it’s easy to understand why. As beautiful as it is during the day, there’s something magical about the warm light at night. Add rain, and it just about brings you to your knees. If you're in the mood for a mini escape, take a virtual tour of Place Colette and Café Le Nemours on google street view (a somewhat embarrassing guilty pleasure of mine).

This is an absolutely stunning photograph! Definitely seconding Tonya, I would love to purchase a print of this.

Will you make this for sale? Immediately? Otherwise, it’s just cruel!

Beautiful! And Google street view is the best; have you ever check out Robot Flaneur for Paris? It randomly aggregates Paris street scenes from Google street view: http://robotflaneur.com/paris/.

Hopefully you see the desire for purchase, so get that out there soon. I love this.

Stunning photo! It’s one of my favorite places in Paris – for a good meal, and to people-watch.
