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
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.
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.
Telescope is my favorite -- calm and lovely space and brilliant coffee. I especially like the filter.
