Best Coffee Shops in Paris

Coffee shops you need to visit in Paris

Here it is... the post you've been waiting for. At least one I've been planning for months. All the best coffee shops and cafes in Paris.

I definitely ventured to quite a few in the 7 months I was living near Paris. Most weekends were filled with me trying to make it to as many new ones as I possibly could.

Some are classics and some of the lesser-known spots made the list. There are still cafes I haven't tried but I've rounded up my personal favorites for you so far.

Cafe Odette

77 Rue Galande, 75005 Paris

A famous and hard to miss spot just steps away from Shakespeare and Co and Notre Dame. Make sure to try their famous cream puff pastries as well.

Shakespeare and Co Cafe

37 Rue de la Bûcherie, 75005 Paris

If you didn't know like me, there's a cafe right next to the famous Shakespeare and Co bookstore, this one may be more crowded and small but still a good spot for a quick break strolling around the city.

Cafe Kitsuné

51 Galerie de Montpensier, 75001 Paris

This cafe is located inside Palais Royal and a must-visit. It's pretty small inside but there's seating outside to enjoy your coffee when it's warm.

Boot Cafe

19 Rue du Pont aux Choux, 75003 Paris

What is possibly the smallest cafe in Paris but worth a visit to what used to be a shoe repair shop (cordonnerie) with the original facade still in place. Be prepared to most likely take your coffee to go.
