”Our goal is to allow the people that visit La Maison Navarre to enjoy a little bit of France when they come in and experience the French Art of Life." – Victor & Charlotte, Owners, La Maison Navarre
This place is one of the most beloved stops on the World Famous Bitcoin Tour of Portsmouth! Victor and Charlotte have become friends. Victor helps his employees install wallets on their phones so that they can accept tips from customers. It is a wonderful atmosphere for bringing your laptop and banging out some work while you charge up.
How to win at La Maison Navarre:
To play this one right, do it in two parts. Dessert first. Go through the first line and get a macaron (I recommend Victor's favorite flavor, pistachio), and one of their specialty mini cakes (I recommend the Magnum mini-cake, if they have it). And order a cortado to go with it. Pay with Bitcoin, Dash, or Zcash. Sometimes the servers will accept tips in crypto, usually Dash. Eat your little dessert and drink your little coffee in the downstairs section and imagine yourself transported to a cafe in Paris as you watch the bustling townspeople pass by the large plate glass window facing the street.
When you are finished, bus your dishes over to the trash on the way up to the wine bar. Order the charcuterie board and ask for the chef's recommendation. He will give you something more awesome than you could have assembled yourself. Pair with a glass of wine, or order a whole bottle and share it! Pay with digital currency, and tip your server with the paper stuff.
