The Deli at Golden Palms
The café culture in France goes back centuries. Cafes have always been a gathering place for intellectuals to meet and debate philosophical issues; for the Avant Guarde set to display their works; for artists to compare and exchange ideas and for writers to drown their sorrows over their artistic anguish or melancholy. Even the freedom fighters of the French Revolution and later the French Resistance would meet in cafes to plot their course.
In Paris you can find cafes like Café de Flore or Les Deux Magots with name plates indicating where famous cultural figures have sat like Hemingway, Sartre and Picasso. The quintessential French cafe has seating indoors and out with small (usually round tables) and plenty of wooden paneling and red and black decor.
Today you can get a glimpse of French Café culture here in our very own Golden Palms Deli. As we continue to try to improve this area as a place of gathering for our residents.
