The Charm of Handwritten Signs (August Break 2014)

While traveling through Europe I loved the handwritten signs in front of restaurants, pubs and cafés. How fitting for today's prompt "Handwriting".

Yummy sandwiches in York - you almost feel sorry for this happy grinning pig.


We were well informed about the Wold Cup matches while exploring the Quartier Latin in Paris - at this time, France was still in the game! This was almost more important that the menu of the place! You have to set your priorities!


There are so many restaurants in the Quartier Latin, it is hard to choose from. Salad anyone?


In Hameln, Germany, we were tempted with cheese rolls or a platter of cheese plus a pot of coffee and/or a glass of wine. I could take all of this!


And finally, on the German island of Spiekeroog this café tempted us with Milchreis (milk rice) with cinnamon and sugar, alternatively with apple sauce or hot cherries or - a local specialty - with rote Grütze which is a fruit pudding made of berries like raspberries, blackberries and strawberries. It is delicious, especially if you eat it with liquid heavy cream or vanilla sauce. However, on top of Milchreis it can be pretty yummy as well.


Now, which of these culinary delights would you choose?

The Milchreis sounded very, very tempting. Filling, but tempting. True comfort food.

Interesting signs. I like looking at different people's handwriting. Something I miss with computer messages.

Oh, I too love those handwritten signs. They have them a lot here in Australia too, and some look like mini-artworks, with lots of colours. Thanks for reminding me to make some pictures of those....

Hard to choose from all the delicacies... :)
It was a good idea to take photos of all the signs, it's a very interesting collection.
