Had an incredibly good latte, and an amazing espresso. They also do very good filter coffee if you’re after something a little different.

The home toasted granola with fromage blanc is excellent.

Télescope is the latest arrival on a still-nascent Parisian speciality coffee scene. At time of writing, they’ve been open less than two weeks, but if the cappuccino I just had was anything to go by, it shouldn’t be long before this cosy little salon is perpetually packed to its roughly-painted rafters. Highly recommended.

    Don’t do it. One of the worst I had in Europe. It was espresso (cafe crème) but pretty burnt I think. I don’t think I could make it that bad if I was trying. If you’re really desperate, there’s a Starbucks there too.. at least you might know what you’re…

    A lovely place for dinner, the owner sat down with us to talk through the menu and recommend some wine. Unfortunately a terrible place for espresso. No crema and not much flavour. Best described as meh.

    I thought I’d get one last le petit dejuener on my last in day in Paris, and Lézard Café looked to be a nice shaded place slightly off Rue Montorgueil to relax before cramming myself and my suitcase onto the Metro. Alas, though all the tables were set w…

    After a few less than stellar espresso experiences in Paris, and with Decaf Sucks reviews a little thin on the ground in this part of the world, I decided to try some alternative sources for a decent café recommendation. Through the coffeegeek.com forum…

    One of the better cafés I breakfasted at while in Paris, Café du Centre is nice and old worldly, and is staffed by a lovely waitress who both speaks english and doesn’t tease you for your pathetically attempts at french. My le petit dejeuner came with t…
