Julien, Bar-Tabac

Outside, Julien

Earlier this year, Julien opened on the corner of the Schuttershofstraat and the Wapper, a convenient one minute walk from my apartment. Julien is a bar-tabac, a popular type of shop in France, where you can enjoy coffee or drinks (bar) and buy cigarettes (tabac), magazines, and newspapers. There is also a colorful selection of sweets from France and Italy! Julien has a cozy, friendly atmosphere and is a great place to have coffee and read the paper in the morning and to meet friends for a glass of wine after work.
