Woman eating alone in Paris

Lisamay | | Jul 23, 2008 08:00 AM

I am traveling to Paris with my husband but we usually split up during the day to do our own things then meet up for dinner. Last time I was in Paris, I was there alone and found it very uncomfortable eating in a nicer restaurant Ex: La Bastide d'Odeon at dinner. I was stared at constantly.) Ditto for cafe bars in the morning, I'm not sure I saw a single woman in a cafe bar. Most of my single meals will be lunch and i would love to be able to enjoy some of the starred restaurants but am afraid it will be uncomfortable. Any suggestions for places with outdoor seating with fabulous food where I can at least read a book . I have eaten alone in several of the museum cafes and been perfectly comfortable, also le petit déjeuner in my hotel breakfast room was fine.
