Hi there!

Thank you so much for this! My Son is bringing me to PARIS later this year (we have a daughter with a disability and my husband will stay home and care for her). We love coffee! Merci

We hope you will have a fabulous time in Paris with your son! And we hope you drink lots of delicious coffee.

i literally fell in love with this blog and its photos

Great article. My girlfriend and I (we are both from Australia) spent a lot of last year searching for a decent flat white. The coffee culture in Paris is a lot different from Oz and your list is great with a couple of places we hadn’t tried yet.
Cheers for the info!

Another great cafe to add to this list is CRAFT, in the 10th arrondisment. It has great coffee and wifi. The ambience was hip and great place to work or study! I went there today and highly recommend it!

Thanks, Emily! Did you notice you even make a cameo in one of the photos? –Kim

We look forward to returning to Paris….we just opened our French bakery here in Pleasanton California and the business is wonderful.We brought a bit of Paris to Pleasanton. My wife is the baker and visionary of this business.We did most of the construction ourselves….still feel that in the bones! Its been wonderful so far as we are the local neighbourhood bakery. Its a true blessing to work this project from scratch to being open.We hope to expand to open a few outlet stores in the Bay Area. We will move to Paris and live the life there when we are done here. Please give our website a look…my wife also made the site herself…
I posted lots of brfore and after photos on my facebook….im Russ Trapani… fell free to take a look.
