Next time you're in the city of light, stop in for a latte at a few of my favourite coffee spots...
Paris was both the first and last stop on our whirlwind tour of Europe, and thanks to jet lag and a few long days of exploring the city on foot, finding a good coffee was very necessary. I'm a soy latte drinker myself, and finding soy milk was next to impossible in Paris, so I decided to switch things up a little bit and ordered and almond milk latte where possible, or an espresso. Either way, we were pleasantly surprised to find a few little gems where great coffee (and more often than not, breakfast and pastries) were on offer. I'm already dreaming about our next trip...
A little hole in the wall inside an old shoe repair shop. It's tiny inside (only three tables), but you'll find subway tiles on the walls and cute little vases of flowers on the tables. Grab a pastry from the counter or the granola parfait if you're in search of breakfast and cosy up with your cappuccino.
19 Rue du Pont aux Choux, 75003
Dangerously close to the Isabel Marant store, this little cafe in Le Marais serves up deliscous granola, avocado on toast and addictive vegan cookies. Order an almond milk latte and sit up at the marble bar, it's an Instagram dream.
54 Rue de Saintonge, 75003
We stayed in Canal Saint-Martin for the last few nights of our trip and this little gem was just around the corner. We ended up coming back here every day for the good vibe, great coffee and the scone. Oh and bonus fact, they had hot cross buns over Easter!
10 Rue de la Grange aux Belles, 75010
Can anyone say grilled chilled cheese? They do a mean toasted sandwich here, an excellent banana bread (ask for the big banana), and you guessed it, a great latte too.
3 Rue Neuve Popincourt, 75011
Enjoy an espresso and some gluten free pastries at this gorgeous little cafe in Palais Royale.
