The entrance to the Broken Arm Paris

The Broken Arm is?seriously?one of those concept shops that manages to balance everything oh-so-right!

Step through the glass door and of course you’ll fall in love with the minimalist cosy feel but in addition to have some seriously good coffee – the FOOD is great!?Delicately?prepared and presented – instagram worthy?every single time!?
