Best Cafes in Paris

Almost every street corner in Paris has what is a Parisian café, they serve pretty standard French cafe food and generally the standard is good. Our advice is to go to places that look busy and don't deviate from what everyone else is eating. The food won't rock your world, but in some ways finding a place that's busy at a time when you're hungry and ordering local will probably deliver reasonable results and is part of any good Paris visit. But...the coffee...well, it's ok...sometimes, other times it's worse. If you're looking for really good coffee then have a look at our Paris Cafe Guide where we uncover the cities best baristas.
