Paris Best 10 Concept Coffee Shops

There’s a new breed of coffee shops in Paris town my friends.

That’s just about to give every other european city a run for its money. Allez Paris – we got ya!

 

The Most Floral

PEONIES – as cute as a button, or rather as pretty as a peony (hahaha, couldn’t resist). This coffee shop is bringing new life to the trendy Faubourg St. Denis street;  a micmac of high and low restaurants can be found here, in a working class part of town. The interiors are peachy pink, and you’ll always be greeted either by the sweet smell of cakes being baked downstairs or the bouquets of flowers out front for sale. Beans from Coutume.
