We love strolling and exploring the streets of Paris and stopping at our favorite Paris Coffee Shops to enjoy some delicious coffee, pastries, and bread – and maybe even do some work. So when we visit Paris we always include plenty of time to stop at our favorite coffee shops. There are so many coffee choices in Paris, though our preference is for the smaller local places rather than the famous Grands Cafes (though we do enjoy an hour or two people watching on a terrasse). Following is our list of our favorite Paris Coffee Shops.
