The tiny store was filled with locals absorbed in conversation. This is no Starbucks in SoCal; it’s a true coffee shop with an atmosphere that the owners look after with detail. Fortunately for me, Nicolas, the owner, was behind the counter. I was met with...More

The owner of this place has some issues. He told me to get out of the seat I was in for no understandable reason. He didn’t say hello, was in no way apologetic or pleasant, just rude. I almost left but decided to stay. Truth...More

If I could rate this place lower I would. The guy behind the bar (the "owner" of previous reviews?) is on a power trip and shouldn't be running a business. A friend and I went in the other day. It was between meal times and...More

We didnt got the oppurtunity to buy a cup of coffee eventhough we arrived at the coffee shop half an hour before closing time. The owner forced us out of his shop, with his hostile and aggressive behavior. If you want a lovely day in...More

I drank a Kenya coffee made in an aeropress method and the coffee was really good. The local is cool and the people that work in there is ok. It is good for someone that search for good coffee.

I've been twice to the café, had once an Aeropress and a flat white. Staff speaks French and English and they can recommend you which coffee to choose. Perfect if you want to go and read, no laptops aloud so it ensures a quiet relaxing...More

This little gem near Musee Dorsay (11 minute walk) was a great way to start the day. Although incredibly small, the atmosphere was intimate and the baristas were patient and polite. I do not speak much French, but they allowed me to practice as they...More
