I bet our “pause déjeuner “(lunch break) is far longer than yours. Don’t be surprised to read this on shops’ doors, even the busiest and most touristic streets of town. Parisian usually go for lunch by 1ish and forget the time.. to be back around 3. We take lunch pretty seriously and usually pretend we have a business one.
Yes, a couple of hours of lunch break, but at least our shops usually stay open till 6 or even 7PM.
(Btw, if you really want to play it like a real Parisian, don’t say “déjeuner”. We love to pretend we are super busy, so we shorten some words into 2 syllabus max. So déjeuner becomes “déj”).
On se fait un dej bientôt?
