I don’t think I’m breaking new ground here. As an American living in Massachusetts, I’m used to good coffee bars, and I know a great espresso when I have one. Yes we have plenty of mediocre coffee in the United States, but we have many...More

Best espresso drinks in Paris, from what I’ve had. Also love the atmosphere here - the chill lounge music, the greenery inside, and the croissants are quite good, too. Definitely worth a trip if you’re in Paris and in need of a good coffee.

The latte came in soup bowl size full of milk, and the " double" strength was very weak.Very disappointing and over €12 for two. Why are the French generally so inept at coffee making when tbe rest of their food is great?

If you really want to have real coffee and a choice, this place it to go. There are not much ads or PRs but that doesn't mean they're not as good. You can choose many flavors and aroma like wine. It's not conveniently located in...More
