Of all the French things to be jealous of—stringy-soft bangs, never gaining an ounce—scarf-winding ability comes in second only to one thing: the café culture. Can't you just picture it? The spindly chairs that threaten to crumble if you so much as breathe in too sharply. The spewing of laminated-dough shards when you take the first bite out of a burnished croissant. The grande dame ordering a beer at 11 a.m. without anyone batting a smoky eyelash.Because we like to torture ourselves, we put photographer Kathryn Wirsing on a direct flight to Paris, where she took tourism-board-worthy pictures of 15 cafés and enough treats to give us an awfully strong urge to run out for macarons right this second. We wouldn't want you to get bored waiting for us, so while we're emptying Ladurée out, occupy yourselves with the images below.
