Avec Louis Chez Fanny

Today I had the pleasure of finally meeting "Louis La Vache" of Bay Photo! Louis has been a faithful commenter almost since I began my blog three and some years ago, and it was nice for both of us to put a face (other than a cow and a dog) to our blogs.

We had lunch at Chez Fanny in Berkeley. Both of us had a croque-monsieur, cafe au lait, and shared a slice of rhubarb-strawberry pie with creme fraiche.

Merci, Louis, and a la prochaine! (Sorry--don't know how to add accents on some of the French words I've used!)

Bises,

It's So fun to meet fellow bloggers, and even better to share something as delicious as that pie. Safe travels.

I have always enjoyed me experiences of meeting fellow bloggers. I, also, live in the San Francisco area which is really nice since it is a frequent stopping place for travelers.

I tried to surprise Louis la Vache at Cafe Honere a few years ago, but he had had to close the shop. Would you believe our first house in Berkeley was just 3 blocks from where you were sitting with "Louis"! I miss Cafe Fanny (named for Alice's daughter) and so many of the eateries in North Berkeley that we frequented in our 20 years there. . .sigh. So, did you and Louis speak in French or in English (I know you are each fluent in both)?
