We love strolling and exploring the streets of Paris and stopping at our Best Paris Coffee Shops to enjoy some delicious coffee, pastries, and bread – and maybe even do some work. When we map our favorite shops we always include plenty of coffee shop options. There are so many coffee choices in Paris, though our preference is for the smaller local places rather than the famous Grands Cafes. We plan our days so we can visit at as many of our Best Paris Coffee Shops as possible. Following is our list of the Best Paris Coffee Shops.
