Pancakes, poached eggs and hearty seasonal fare served alongside excellent coffee sourced from Belleville Brulerie in a sunny space along the Canal St. Martin. An international array of coffee preparations (flat whites, espressos, long blacks, cappuccinos, and very good “real deal” filtered coffee) are accompanied by hot chocolate made from homemade chocolate syrup and a selection of teas from Le Parti du Thé.

Single serving profiteroles from Meilleur Ouvrier de France (MOF) patissier Philippe Urraca.
Ob-La-Di might be the most Instagrammed café of the 2015 rentrée, but there’s real substance at this stylish spot in the Haut Marais. Most of the baked goods are made in-house, and many of them manage to be vegan and gluten-free, and still actually taste
A shoebox sized coffee shop inside a former cobbler. The coffee’s made for walking so plan to take your Belleville Brûlerie coffee and Emperor Norton baked goods to go.
Just steps from the Canal Saint-Martin, this shoebox-sized café is serving beautiful coffee with Anglo-inspired breakfast and lunch bites like scones, healthy sandwiches and sausage rolls.
A coffee bar with emphasis on the bar – cocktails and coffee in a shared space from one of the partners in the Belleville Brûlerie.
A new outpost for Coutume–this time in collaboration with Labstore. You’ll see a smaller selection of their beloved roasts than at the Rue Babylone location, now accompanied by some trippy products from the concept design shop Labstore.
Black Market, a well loved cafe with great coffee, is adapting and transforming–into a bigger and better coffee shop set in a building that was formerly stables. This is an upcoming opening and we’ll update our description and trusted reviews as soon as we know more.
A tiny spot with tiny terrasse near the Marche des Enfants Rouges from Australian barista Chris Nielsen. This is an upcoming opening and we’ll update our description and trusted reviews as soon as we know more.

Beans are roasted right before your eyes at this excellent coffee boutique. Take a bag home, or take a seat in the back room and order a drink from the expert barista.
This wedding cake bakery has a café in front, serving house made American style treats, and – whoa! – free refills on drip coffee.
In business since 1880, Verlet roasts and sells single origin coffee beans, house blends, and fine teas, with a salon for on-the-spot drinking upstairs.
Perhaps better known for its open armed embrace of kale (in salad and chip form), Loustic also has quite good coffee. Beans are sourced from Caffènation and prepared with care. The stylish space, designed by Dorothée Meilichzon, is a bit of a place to see and be seen, but the bobo is balanced out by free wifi and friendly staff.
Colorful pastries (and some savory goods, too) at this vibrant and playful tea salon.
Part of the new wave of cafés, Coutume serves serious coffee drinks along with light & healthy lunch fare.
A brand-new roastery from the Parisian coffee powerhouses David Flynn (formerly of Telescope), Thomas Lehoux (Ten Belles), Anselme Blayney (Ten Belles and Le Bal Cafe). The roastery and accompanying tasting space are geared towards production and professional trainings during the week, but will be open to the public for cuppings and coffee on Saturdays.
One of the few professional roasteries in Paris is also a warehousy coffeeshop open to the eager public willing to trek to the 18th. It’s worth the journey for coffee geeks, or freelancers looking for a casual place to camp out. Coffee offerings change all the time based on what’s being freshly roasted on-site.
Serious coffee served in a library-like environment. Pleasantly, the back section of the cafe is a designated co-working space with a strong wireless signal and plenty of plugs for freelancers to camp out. Irritatingly, the staff change the pricing system for said space just about every week.
Nineteenth century Russian nobles spoke French, but the French pastries at this salon de thé in the Printemps department store have a Russian accent.
Forget about café crème and go for a flat white at this Aussie-inspired shop, one of the new wave of serious coffee places popping up in Paris. Also on order are fresh juices, sandwiches, and house-made tea cakes and scones.
Tucked into one of the covered passages in the ninth, Le Valentin specializes in Alsatian sweets, and serves breakfast and lunch in their tea salon.
Bob (aka Marc Grossman)’s mini empire continues to expand with American style diner and bakery complete with pecan or lattice-topped cherry pie, Belleville Brulerie coffee, hand-rolled bagels and even their elusive brethren bialys. There’s a pretty lovely outdoor terrasse, too.
