Au Matin Calme, Dark

Myrtle and I returned to the Au Matin Calme for an omelette for breakfast. Of course the main motive for me was to try another hot chocolate on the menu. This time I tried the dark hot chocolate. As last time it came in a small mug with the label "Un Tasse de Caffe" which translates to "A coffee cup". This was interesting because it was more mug than cup and it held hot chocolate not coffee. This is reminiscent of the French pushing the boundaries of philosophy and art such as in Rene Magritte's painting "Ceci n'est pas une pipe" ("This is not a pipe").

I digress. The hot chocolate was good. It had a dark, reasonably rich, Belgian chocolate flavour and it was topped with a creamy froth and sprinkle of dark cocoa. The cost was $4.00.
