The book looks so interesting! I would love a copy.


I’d love to read this book. I designed my dining room to look like a Paris cafe!

One of my very favorite things to do in Paris is to sit, write and observe in a cafe. Thank you for writing this book and bringing cafe experiences to life!

One of the pleasures of a visit to Paris is cafes…and this book looks to be a talisman for those of us who love them.

Hi, I met Joanie when I was in Paris in April. Would love to win a copy of her book.

I LOVE that this book is completely and lovingly dedicated to Paris cafes! To me, the cafes are the biggest part of life in this beautiful art-filled city. Spending relaxed and delicious time in one of these sacred spots is as special as viewing fine art in a museum. I’d love to own a copy of this book! It sounds wonderful!

How could I forget my first visit to a Parisian cafe? It was in October 1972. The Palatino overnight train from Rome brought me to Montparnasse. The first place I went was to a neighborhood cafe. I was 20 years old. I can’t remember the name of the cafe. But I vividly remember standing at the cafe counter. And never forget my first stop on my first visit to Paris was a cafe.
