“In France, it’s pretty rare you’ll just sit down have a quick meal and continue with your day.”
“Whenever I would visit family around France, I always had to remind myself of food customs. Food is meant to be enjoyed, so you take your time.
A lot of local businesses, particularly shops, close around midday to accommodate for this, so get comfortable. (Not all shops do this, but it’s best to just eat midday if you visit.)” —u/whyImcalledqueen
