Coffee in Paris - the new wave
The Thai Airways inflight magazine has an article about the new barista driven coffee bars in Paris.
I have heard about Ten Belles (10 rue de la Grange aux Belles), but any insight into the following:
Telescope - 5 rue Villendo
Coutume Cafe - rue de Babylone
The Broken Arm - 12 rue Perree
Loustic - 40 rue Chapon
Cafe Lomi - 3 ter rue Marcadet
Milk Cafe - Montmartre
Ten Belles really has great coffee, I even buy my grains there (although they're awfully expensive).
La Caféothèque (as mentionned by Ptipois), is nice to chill out (if you're in the neighborhood) and has a huge selection of coffees.
I wasn't that impressed with their "café du jour" when I went, but I still would go back over any "standard" french café (if I'm in the neighborhood...).
I never tried the other ones on the list, although they're on my list too.
Thank you. Very nice list.
Telescope is on rue Villedo
Milk Cafe is on rue d'Orsel.
Le Loustic is a great place to go after a phö at Song Heng. I like the phö there very much, but one is supposed to leave the no-frill boui-boui immediately after the quick meal, and I have always wanted to find a place nearby for a post-meal chillout coffee or tea. Nearby Loustic is perfect.
