Re: Tea Room

I picked up on Chancers comment that they only became successful when they started doing lunch for the French.

I vaguely remember someone telling me that lunch is subsidised with tax advantages for French employers. A way of protecting the trade.

Can anybody confirm that?


My name is Richard , not Dick or any variant.
Dick is a crude name for a functional organ that is used as a derogatory name. Any reference to me as Dick will be met with equivalent response. Strange that it cant be policed better.

Well of course the voucher system is a tax-efficient way of paying people in France, IIRC.

I think it is similar to the old luncheon voucher system. We had a similar system in Sweden and they were a non-taxable benefit .

Re: Tea Room

There are 2 "tea rooms" in Mirande 32, both run by french people.
One is attached to a bakery, the other is in the main market square. I've been to that one several times, almost all the customers just have coffee.

Re: Tea Room

Frank,

We have stopped here a couple of times when on holiday in Daglan. It has an email address, and was run by an English woman. I assume it still is.
