Surprisingly little dog shit for Paris. Do they still have the scooter scoopers?

Went to buy a jacket and was pleasantly surprised to be offered a bottle of champagne while waiting for the bill

Spent 45 mins with staff chit chatting

Image

Was also surprised they have a huge balcony for customers who smoke



Seems to have many surprises in Paris
