Café de Foy,Palaise Royal
"On July 12, 1789, Camille Desmoulins,
standing on a table in the Café de Foy,
a sword in one hand, a pistol in the other,
haranguing a huge crowd, a green leaf in his hat, calling the bourgeois from Paris to arms, distributing green leaves to them as a sign of rallying, gave the signal for the insurrection which went
from there to finish the next day
with the taking of the Bastille."
A word on a Café de Foy, that once stood in the Palais Royal, Paris.
Whilst there's no relation between the two, what we do share is a love for coffee, art and a good gossip (political or not).
