Some places teenagers go to in order to satisfy their hunger and thirst are:

  • bakery (une boulangerie)
  • pastry shop (une pâtisserie) - buy croissants, éclairs, etc.
  • Street vendors - Pizzas, hot dogs, ice cream, crêpes.
  • Fast-Food restaurant (un fast-food).

But the most common place that teens go to is the café.
