Our 3 Favourite Coffee Shops in Paris
Paris is one of those cities that you rarely get tired of. There is simply so much going on with something for everyone. For a start, the architecture. It seems that just about every building, no matter how decrepit, oozes charm. It's an Instagrammers Dream. One of the things that we love about Paris is the coffee culture and the city is emerging as a capital of coffee culture. We've picked our three favourite neighborhood coffee shops for you to experience on your next Journey to Paris. La Fontaine de Belleville | www.lafontainedebelleville.com
A quintessential corner Parisian cafe. Perfect for lazy mornings but it gets really busy in the afternoons. With it's mix of housewives, writers, artists and travellers, it's a perfect spot to soak up the interesting atmosphere that you would expect from Paris. The menu is simple with plenty of French favourites and they often have live Jazz on Saturday afternoons.
Boot Cafe | 19 Rue du Pont aux Choux, Le Marais
Boot Cafe is so cosy that it only seats 8 people. A former Cobblers workshop, Boot is very much an in-the-know spot, in fact, from the outside, you probably wouldnt know they serve some of the best coffee in Paris.
Shakespeare and Company | 37 Rue de la Bûcherie, Left Bank
Slightly better known but just as interesting, Shakespeare and Company Cafe, an attachment to the bookshop of the same name, is a great spot to catch up and sit down after visiting many of the nearby sights including Notre Dame. Food is standard coffee shop Parisian Fare but the coffee, location and pedigree make it worth the stop.
