A 50s dining experience..

We're not in Kansas anymore.. we're in Happy Days 50s Diner in Paris. To call it a magical would be an understatement. If you follow me on Instagram @whathayleythinks or Twitter @wathayleythinks, you will have seen me refer to this place as 'a bloggers dream'. With a turquoise decor, neon lights and a juke box singing away in the corner, I was in my absolute element.

The menu was, of course, burgers and fries. We were spoilt for choice but I went for the bacon cheeseburger and Connor had the Jack Daniels burger. I didn't get a picture of mine but this was Connor's. Delish!
The drinks menu was delightful, with milkshakes of all flavours topped with whipped cream and cherries. You could pick a shake off the menu or create your own deluxe taste, with every chocolate option you could imagine. Bueno, Nutella, M&Ms, you name it, they had it. I went for the Oreo shake which was out of this world, Connor had a double dose of peanut butter and banana. 

The overall atmosphere of the diner was so fun and positive, the staff were obviously French but happily spoke English to us. The service was super friendly and we both said the burgers were perfection. It's that kind of place that makes you feel very 'Sandy from Grease' and immediately made me feel like I had stepped back into the 50s. If only I was wearing a pastel coloured midi skirt and ribbon in my hair! 

I loved the fact that we were sat in a cosy little booth! It was only small downstairs but the distinct (and very chic) checkerboard floor made it feel much more spacious. As well as, or course, adding to the whole 50s theme. It was just perfect!

I just wanted to share this part of my Paris trip with you because I've never been in such a retro, cool, pretty place before. If you know of any vibrant diners like this here in the UK I'd love to know about them!

Thanks for reading x
