If you are a latte snob, this is a must stop in central Paris. The latte's are awesome, american like size. Great atmosphere, good seating, did not feel to crowded. Wifi was good. Service is friendly and would talk enlish to the now french speakers around us.

We called in here at the end of our five day trip to Paris for a relaxing cup of coffee just before taking our taxi to the Gare du Nord to catch our train. The Cappuccino was made to perfection with Ethiopian coffee beans, and cost just 5€. It had a very smooth creamy taste, and was a far cry... More

My husband loves coffee and so we decided to make our afternoon stop here. So glad we did. We ordered one cappuccino with their Guatemalan blend and one espresso with their Peruvian blend. Amazing. Their gluten free cakes were also delicious and the staff very welcoming. Nice ambiance and a great place to work or just enjoy a book with... More

Love!!!! I don't leave reviews often, but this places is absolutely amazing. The staff is extremely friendly and welcoming. Coffee is delicious and so are the empanadas. Beef was my favorite. You can buy coffee to go, too!

Went there on Sunday around 3 PM, got seated right away but shortly after we saw loads of people actually queuing to get in. Service was a bit slow due to the high traffic of customers I guess, but we saw waiters literally running back and forth, it is a busy place. They have LOADS of types of coffee there,... More

If you are a coffee connoisseur or if you are just someone who enjoys the taste of coffee, you’ve got to try it! The place is not particularly fancy though it has that typical atmosphere of the French capital city. But the coffee will blow your mind (literally if you are sensitive to caffeine). They have a wide collection from... More

If you're looking for REAL coffee, this is the spot. Up there with other world class institutions such as Cape Town's Truth Coffee and Berlin's Father Carpenter, this place takes coffee very seriously and it's reflected in every cup. The location itself has a neat vibe, with a few different rooms with living room and dining room-like ambiance. Staff are... More

Visited a couple of times in Jan/Feb and enjoyed the coffee. Not enough sweets available and service is too slow.

Very special coffee shop in Paris. You can buy freshly grinded coffee of many different sorts. As well as have a good cup of coffee with a nice treat. We have ordered a brownie and a lemon tart with our coffees, both very tasty. The place has a great interior, especially the "tropical room" full of plants with a window... More

Staying in Le Marais

Neighbourhood Profile
Le Marais
The Marais is a winding maze of multi-faceted streets that beg to be explored. It bursts with small boutiques, historic buildings, cozy traditional restaurants, and hidden parks. Around each corner, you'll come across little gems of architecture spanning the centuries, from understated medieval towers to classical libraries and 17th century splendour. This neighbourhood unites a rich mix of people of all ages, but it's best known for the gay scene mostly in the south and the Jewish community around Rue des Rosiers.
