I think we’ll all agree that the year of 2020 is a bizarre one.
And so, I’m not sure if recommending going out there and grabbing a coffee is the essential advice you’ll need today.
Yet, life goes on, and we’re all trying our best to keep it as normal as possible. And grabbing coffee was one of those tiny life pleasures that some of us just cherished so much. I know I did!
So please consider this new Paris coffee shops guide not only as walking against the odds but also as a strong support of local businesses. They need it now more than ever!
Let’s start with my latest discovery! I love it so much that I travel through the whole wide Paris just for a coffee!
Why? It’s perfect if you’re looking for a calm, cosy and aesthetically pleasing space for a rendezvous with your bestie! Or, an inspiring afternoon in front of your latest read.
Not only will you spend a qualitative time in a coffee temple. But also, you’ll travel to South Korea thanks to the little decor touches and the world-famous binsgu ice-cream!

Back in Black
Let me take you now to a much more industrial and spaceship-like looking coffeeshop!
In terms of the conceptual attraction Back in Black is offering an experience of 200m2 (!) and its own coffee brewed on the spot.
Also, having the right capacity, it’s very nomad and business meeting friendly. Yet, it shouldn’t bother those who hang out for pleasure only.
And more than that, note it down next time you’ll be looking for a funky Parisian brunch place!

Just like the rare bird, this Paris coffee shop is also a rare specie.
First of all, you can’t pass by it indifferently, because boldness of the yellow facade catches your attention immediately.
Then, you decide to stop for a quick cup of coffee and boom; you get lost in its cute charm, the delicateness of ray of lights, and subtle touches of yellow colour!
But as in all good coffeeshops, it’s the coffee grain that plays the leading role.
Here, inspired by the Amazonia (just like the Yellow Tucan!) will surely please even the most demanding palette!

It’s well hidden, small and intimately satisfying.
The atmosphere that the Japanese owner – Yuichiro Sugiyama brought into this place is rather one of a kind and you must test it in person.
And speaking of testing, I highly recommend tasting their homemade granola bowls – a true feast for eyes and stomachs!
