McDonalds fast food, France
Our last day is here, I can’t believe my daughter and granddaughter are leaving; this has been the quickest and best week ever.
We have a 2 and a half hour drive to the airport, and one of the highlights is McDonald’s, now I am not a fan of fast food outlets but McDonald’s in France can be a life saver for a number of reasons.
If you are holidaying or have just moved to France, find your nearest McDonald’s. The main reason is the WIFI, every outlet has free WIFI and it is fast.
You can find your nearest hotel or keep in touch with family and friends, for this reason alone it makes it a must have.
But for us, at this moment, we have a very active toddler on a long drive to an airport with few amenities. So stopping at McDonald’s on the way is great, every store we have been to in Brittany has a children’s play area, all we have seen have been in good condition and clean. So spending half an hour here on a long journey, means that even the most active toddler can let off steam.
The food options for children are also reasonably healthy, with organic fruit juices and yoghurts and fruit bags.
Food for adults is the same as most countries, the only main difference we have found is that you can have a glass of beer instead of a fizzy drink! (But not whilst driving obviously!)
The other difference is that hot drinks are not included in the meal deals, so if you have a coffee this is added to the price.
Ordering food is very easy, once you know how. You do not order at the counter, there are machines in the store. The machines give a variety of languages to choose from including English.
So you choose your language, then you go through the menus, to order a meal deal, it is called a McDonald’s menu.
Once you have input your order you can choose to pay by card or cash, a ticket is then issued that you take to the counter, if there is a queue you can state where you are sat and the food is brought to you.
As I said we are not big fast food fans, but McDonald’s is good for so many reasons and very easy to use when your language skills are not up to scratch and you are only visiting or want to tire your kids.
