FAQ About French Food, Coffee, Wine, and Tipping

A typical French lunch consists of a starter (“une entrée”), such as a mixed salad, soup, some terrine or pâté, and bread. A main course (“le plat principal”) is typically a choice of meat or fish with potatoes, rice, pasta, and/or vegetables; a cheese course (often a selection of local cheeses); and/or a dessert. A “café gourmand” is a very tasty and inexpensive option as you are served three to five small desserts, such as crème brûlée, mousse au chocolat, baba au rhum, macarons, etc. Some menus give you the alternative to choose either an “entrée” and “plat principal” or a “plat principal” and “dessert”.
