What people say

"This was the first coffee shop I went to when I arrived in 2021 and I absolutely love the breakfast + coffee that we had (see photo). Loved the fact that it’s quite spacious too since that’s not really common here in Paris."
"Glorious tables to work from and great coffee. Downsides: No outlets 😭 and it closed really early during the week."
