Taverns and Food Quotes

“Don't talk to me about taverns! There is just one genuine, clean, decent, palatable thing occasionally to be had in them - namely a boiled egg.”

Oliver Wendell Holmes, 'Life and Letters' (1867)


“There is nothing yet which has been contrived by man by which so much happiness is produced as by a good tavern.”

Samuel Johnson (1709-1784)


“At that comfortable tavern on Pontchartrain we had a bouillabaisse than which a better was never eaten at Marseilles; and not the least headache in the morning, I give you my word; on the contrary, you only wake with a sweet refreshing thirst for claret and water.”

William Makepeace Thackeray (1811-1863)
