Café des 2 Moulins + Amélie

12.12.2013

The nice thing about cold wintry evenings is they invite you to stay indoors and enjoy what you love to do in the comfort of home … lately, for me, that's meant queuing up movies new and old and watching favorite films long forgotten.

One that I loved and haven't seen since it came out nearly twelve years ago is Amélie, the immensely enchanting French comedy starring Audrey Tautou. Have you seen it? If you're a fan of that movie, you may remember Amelie's workplace, Café des 2 Moulins (above), a little cafe that sits quietly on a busy corner of Rue Lepic in Montmartre… passing by it in Paris last month offered the perfect reminder to add Amélie to my growing list of must-see agains :)

  1. Oh, I love Amélie too, and I visited le Café des 2 Moulins last time I was in Paris (in fact, it's featured in my red collection of the photos of the year - stay tuned :) I will definitely add Amélie to my Christmas vacation movie list! Enjoy your snow days with your boys!

  10. The movie is so full of poetic touches - perfect for daydreaming ;-) I did not know the café was real, so on my next trip in the area, I'll have to check it out and take a few pics. Now that you made me think of the movie, I sooooo like the part about the traveling "nain de jardin' :-) I am laughing as I write this... All the best to you,
