It’s been a while since Paris saw a flowering increase of coffee houses on every corner, every time getting better in their design as well as on their menú. We take a look at 5 new top coffee shops where you can find the perfect blend.
A new coffee shop in Upper Marais, certainly the most pleasant neighborhood. White and blue tiled ultra instagramable, rough walls, marble bar and wooden shelves, the fluent place gender codes by adding a friendly je ne sais quoi.
Besides coffee (Lomi) brilliantly worked by different methods, granola and cakes of compact and soft day, Ob-la-di can beat its competitors in salty food. The avocados on toast topped with fresh pomegranate alongside completes the homemade soups and veggie burgers.
Where? 54 Rue de Saintonge, 75003
With its brightly decorated Scandinavian influences, this fine neighborhood of Abbesses opened in early October with a notch ambience within the Parisian coffee houses. No coincidence, then, that they have chosen the name of a French brand centennial. The selection of coffees sourced from small producers around the world alongside the Blend 21, fresh signature of the house, all are available for sale as tasting.
We accompany all this a comforting homemade pastries, a fruit-granola or yogurt, for salty cravings, exquisite bread house.
Where? 19 rue Yvonne Tac, 75018
THE BEANS ON FIRE
Rawest, more 11th arrondisement in short, this new brand place was established just outside the Square Gardette. Here, the coffee beans pioneer KB Caféshop are roasted on site and pastries are prepared in our faces.
From the ultra cool therefore, supplemented by a new map served salted in partnership with the nearby canteen Chez Colette, including fresh salads and sandwiches, every Wednesday during the holidays, a steaming tartiflette are shared in the large wooden tables.
Where? 7 Rue du General Blaise, 75011
SHAKESPEARE & CO
It took over 50 years to the historical library of English literature to develop a coffee shop. Opened in October, the beautiful space to tradi-rough atmosphere hosts writers and outsiders with its artisan roasted coffee Lomi, and quick but healthy food. Cookies and bagels gluten-free are signed by Marc Grossman, owner of veggie Bob’s Kitchen, and are enjoyed by browsing through a cookbook dive on the bookcase.
Good idea too, for the “Rainy day tea time” for Wednesdays on winter, for the weekly readings and for the lectures and critical writers.
Where? 37 Rue de la Bûcherie, 75005
A little more low-key in its decor but equally qualified in its offer, the latest Avek is not content with a flat-white equation / carrot cake (not bad at all for also signed by the neighbor Matamata), but turns at the end of the day in a confidential cocktail bar.
Pointed, sometimes astonishing, Nils’s creations mix spirits handpicked, homemade syrup and unexpected ingredients. A support of a board of farmhouse cheeses. As we go in the morning to a perfect filter coffee and a fleshy pastries.
Where? 21 rue Saint Sauveur, 75002
