One of my favorite hobby is, believe it or not, spend my afternoon in coffee shop or as we commonly call in France “Café”. It’s an old tradition that every good French knows and especially in Paris where you have a coffee shop in every corner. In english it’s called “coffee shop” but it’s more like a restaurant style than a Starbucks. It’s part of the french history and heritage for a long time now. No matter what we do, we always end up in a cafés talking about what’s in our minds and enjoy the day. It’s a convivial place of sharing, talking and debating. If you ever come to Paris you’re going to see that and if you’ve already had the pleasure to visit the city, of course you noticed it. However you have to be aware that not every café is friendly especially when it comes to paying because some cafés that are located in touristy areas are excessively expensive. That’s why, with one my girlfriend we decided to go on a café adventure and try out some of the cafés in Paris that offer affordable drinks in an very instagram vibe.

It’s a coffee shop located in the 11th arrondissement of Paris, in the East. It’s hidden in a quiet street near Place de la République among a bunch of co-working spaces.

Not huge but not tiny either. I went during the week so the working space was very busy but I feel that even during the week-ends you need to force your way in. However, I’d say that the only negative side is the decoration that’s a little basic.
