Procrastinators, writers and coffee lovers are usually delighted when they first stumble into this place. A clean, minimalistic and acoustic ambience greets you. You walk over to the bar and are greeted pleasantly – in English no less! You look at their menu, which provides a huge assortment of snacks. No matter. Take your time to browse through the goodies. When you’re ready order, you’re pleased to discover that unlimited Wi-Fi is offered along with an espresso. Its time to sit down, but before that, you have to scout out those pesky plug points for your laptop – and they’re everywhere. It’s getting creepy. No place could be that intuitive of your needs, could it? Anyway, you find a quiet spot and set up shop. You sip your coffee and fall in love. You ask and are smugly told that it’s the best coffee in Paris, maybe France. And it’s cheap. You notice a few more things: the music is non-invasive, the patrons all look good and someone keeps refilling your coffee. Yes, refilling it.
Now it’s too late. You’ve been sucked in, ensnared by convenience. You’re never leaving this place. If Howard Roark had dedicated himself to designing cafés, this it what he’d have come up with.

Great place to work with a laptop. You have to order (or just pay) 4 EUR per hour sitting in the working space. GREAT coffee,extremely nice staff. Recommended if you need a nice place to work.
Interesting co-working and coffee shop concept. I like it! The barista that made our coffee was really bubbly and had a great attitude. She was all alone in the shop and managed to serve with a smile, clean, and make amazing coffee! You have a section in the back if you want to sit in the co-working area and that runs €4 for one hour. It’s very hidden but if you’re close and want to grab a great quality coffee with smile then stop by. Heck if you just want to see someone smile in Paris you should stop by and buy a coffee. As rare as good coffee is to find a smile is probably one of the rarest things to find in Paris.
Great place for coffee and quick bite. You can also work there for a couple hours in dedicated work area. Huge plus is that they have oat milk and a gluten free treat when I went.
Staff is amazing, you can see they are real professionals, coffee is excellent.
Nice little coffee shop, also an internet work spot. Friendly staff right nextdoor to our hotel
