When I first arrived in Paris in 2013, there was no such thing as “good coffee” in Paris. It was just starting to change and thank goodness it did. I feel every time I visit Paris, there is a new coffee shop. You will never be at a loss for good coffee with this list. There are almost 30 spots of places all around the city for a really good cup of coffee. This is my way of saying thank you for supporting my coffee and croissant research over the years.
Café Kitsuné – the space is small, you can drink inside but I love to do take away and bring it for a walk through Palais Royal. Iced or Hot latte is my go-to drink depending on the weather. Update! They have a new larger Louvre Location which is very close to their smaller outpost. They open at 8:30 which is amazing! Most craft coffee spots don’t open until 10. I am usually walking around Paris shooting images and waiting for one place to open.
Boot Café – My favorite area to stay in Paris is the Marais and Boot have always been a pretty quick walk. They just don’t open until 10 am, which I am usually on my second cup by then. It is super small so depending on the time of day, you are best to ask for it to go. (emporter si’il vous plaît)
You can eat here (avocado toast is a popular menu item) or you can get coffee to go. They now open at 8 am which is a dream for early risers. I usually stop here for my first coffee of the day. A café crème will be around 4 euros. They only take card no cash.
Coutume They have a few locations on the Left Bank. They serve oat milk (yes!) which makes me super happy. Their Coutume Café on Rue de Babylone opens at 8:30 am and the Coutume Institue near Notre Dame is open at 9 am. You can bring your laptop and work here.
Brasserie Barbès – This was not around when I lived across the street but it is a nice addition to the neighborhood. They offer food as well but I have never tried it, just the coffee.
Cuillier – Try their yogurt it is SO good. But also their coffee is great.
KB Café – The space is small inside but during the warmer months they have a large outdoor terrace with tables and chairs. They do have wifi. Update. They opened a new location called Back in Black. They have food and coffee and you can work from their space with their laptop which is rare.
Hardware Societé – If you are looking for a place by Sacre Coeur this is a great option.
Loustic – You can’t miss the café sign outside. You are in for good coffee. They have wifi so you can work from here and they do offer food options.
Dreamin Man The space is super small. You can grab a coffee and fresh pastries here. It opens at 8:30 am.
Caféothèque – the coffee is great and the ambiance is great. I wouldn’t recommend it for wifi. I have never had good luck here.
Le Peleton Café – located in the heart of the Marais and is very close walking distance to the Seine. They also run a bike tour company from this location called Bike About Tours.
Ob-la-di – I lived around the corner and didn’t go often but this is a hot spot for bloggers and is Instagram friendly if that is what you are looking for. They offer food options as well.
Passager – located not far from the famous croissant spot Blé Sucre (it is on my list for one of the best croissants in Paris) They have a much larger space than some of the other spots in the Marais.
Republique of Coffee – the space is a good size and located in the Upper Marais. They also offer food options. Each week, they highlight another coffee roaster so their menu is always changing.
