There is an old bicycle carelessly parked outside and a plant that climbs its facade. The facade is simple, almost too discreet. We would pass by it without looking back. Yet. By pushing the door, we discover a charming space, mini forests in a bubble of glass, books, posters.
It must be said that the three Australians who have landed there great looking coffee machine are probably little magicians. In all cases, they have found the right formula. Behind their big counter, they distribute small coffee, beautiful latte and a noble cappuccino at 9 am, along with fresh pastries (scones, brownies with nuts, cookies, banana bread, carrot cake, etc.). Smoothly comes lunchtime, the delicate smell of soup begins to spread (roasted tomatoes with honey and thyme).
A nice bowl, a sandwich (sesame puree, comté cheese, nuts and rocket, for example) and a cup of coffee will cost 10 euros. Also on the menu: salads and toasties, all completely vegetarian, but so good and tasty that you will not even notice you are eating healthy food …
Soon the beautiful pendulum at the entrance rings 2pm, the perfect time for a last coffee. Then the afternoon will begin to stretch. Then will settle some Parisians to enjoy the WI-FI, sipping chai lattes and listening to some lounge music.
