Pancakes, poached eggs and hearty seasonal fare served alongside excellent coffee sourced from Belleville Brûlerie 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. The exceptionally friendly service is notable. Also notable, the lines for weekend brunch. Get there early.
Part concept shop, part café, the stylish space has small plates, cookies and cakes, and a tightly edited, but well-prepared, coffee menu. Coffee available to-go, as well.
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.
