Effortlessly chic little café that knows good coffee whether it be filtered or espresso, Fragments knows how to impress. Come in for the coffee, stay for the food. Trust me, going in for only coffee, we had some major FOMO and #ragrets when we saw all the delectable dishes that others had ordered. Oh, and you’ll be sipping on your coffee in the presence of Bruce Lee (well, sort of), how could it get any better?
Find it here:
76 Rue des Tournelles, 75003 Paris
2. Peloton Café
Cute and cosy café run by bike enthusiasts and founders of Bike About tours. The barista is the owner of the café, so you know each cuppa is prepared with love and soul. Not only are the coffees delicious, but there are also other options to spice up your day – organic juices, ginger beer and craft beer to name a few. Located in the historic suburb of Le Marais, this a perfect pit stop to help you recharge on your stroll through the gorgeous neighbourhood.

3. Holly Belly
Owned and operated by Sarah Mouchot and Nico Alary, these guys love to constantly evolve themselves with an updated menu each and every month. An undefined cuisine (but bordering more towards Melbourne-isque type set-up), they could be serving classic French or southern comfort food, depending on when you decide to pay a visit. Oh and their coffee? To die for. But you’ll want to be early or be prepared to wait – at least an hour is the typical waiting time for a table at this café, but trust us, it’ll be worth it.
Get here ASAP:
19 Rue Lucien Sampaix, 75010 Paris
4. Hardware Société
Australian’s know good coffee, but don’t worry, you don’t need to travel all the way to Melbourne to experience this little gem. Opened earlier this year, Hardware Société brings the high quality yet simple ingredients, and the delectable imported Australian coffee (Padre) that has made it so famous with people in the land of Aus. Located at the top of Montmartre, Hardware Societe is an absolute bucket list café for all you café/brunch/delicious food fanatics.

5. Folk and Sparrows
This place is cool
, like really really really
cool. Folks and Sparrows was the vision of Paris-born owner, Franck, who lived in Brooklyn for 10 years. You can see the influence this chapter in Franck’s life made in the setting of the café, a warm, humbling oasis from the bustling, elbow-to-elbow street cafes of the city, accompanied by the serenading calm of country music. Delicious coffee that pairs fantastically with their cheesecake. Must try, you’ll most likely fall in love (as we did).

14 Rue Saint-Sébastien, 75011 Paris
6. Baguett's Café
Inviting little café that has great coffee, and great people. Oh and if you feel like indulging, they have a beautiful selection of freshly prepared cakes and tarts that they are reknown for. Need we say more?
