☕ Warm yourself up in one of the many cafés of Paris

Didn’t you know that Paris has almost as many cafés as inhabitants? We are joking, but typical cafés and brasseries are an integral part of Parisian life. With the weather getting colder, there is nothing better than sipping a nice hot drink. We recommend you Café Verlet, a small place frozen in time that offers hot chocolates, coffees, teas and exquisite sweets. If you enjoyed your experience there, you can buy tea or coffee, because yes, the café also hides a coffee / tea store. Wonderful, isn’t it ? We also recommend you to try Shakespeare & Company, an original café-library not without reminding the Anglo-Saxon atmosphere. A guaranteed change of scene in the middle of Paris.
