    How can you not find café au lait? I mean: how do you manage to avoid it? What's wrong with the café at metro Lamark which must be about a block away from you?
    And 5 minutes away on rue Caulaincourt, there are charming cafés galore.

      head for the rue du Poteau market street ... from rue Marcadet, take rue Duhesme, right at rue Ordener, and then a left at rue du Poteau... real local life (not Montmartre cutesy), loads of cafes and shops... and just 5 mins away
