I work best at my many coffices (coffee shop + office). The best part about being a coffice girl is that you can find one in every city! As you know, some of my favorites in Paris are Kozy, Loustic, and the … Continue reading
I couldn’t have had a more exciting introduction to Loustic! The visit began as I rushed to the cafe the morning after pulling an all-nighter (nuit blanche, here). Usually the morning after a nuit blanche, I’m on a happy high until about … Continue reading

Coffee date, anyone?
With views of the Seine, La Caféothèque de Paris is a great place to sit and relax with a coffee and pastry. There are plenty of tables and couches to sit on, plus they have an incredible coffee bean selection from all over the world that you can enjoy in-house or chez toi. What makes La Caféothèque stand out is its commitment to providing the absolute best coffee from all over the world to their customers.
This 4e arrondissement gem also hosts a variety of events, including concerts, recitals, and art expositions, which they’ve dubbed “Café-i-culture”. You can check out this month’s schedule online here.
My experience at La Caféothèque was lovely. Two friends and I had a wonderful afternoon laughing, catching up, and enjoying our delicious coffees. The greenery inside made it seem like we were in a rustic, tropical place, all the while looking out at the Seine.

“On prend un café?”
My answer to this is always “oui!” I am always up for coffee. What makes a little caffeine even better is if it’s accompanied by something sweet.
My favorite dessert, apart from the moelleux or mi-cuit au chocolat, is the café gourmand.
A café gourmand is a “culinary concept aiming at proposing an espresso and a bunch of mignardises at the same time, served on the same plate.”
If you can’t decide which dessert to pick, pas de souci (no problem). Just order this winner; you can have your cake and eat it, too!
