Very nice coffeeshop with Ethiopian and Kenyan coffee. Served by locals, amazing experience and delicious desserts. Perfect in warmer seasons when there's an option to sit outdoors.

After looking around based on their old address (TripAdvisor downloaded version), we stumbled at their Cafe @ Rue des Chapeliers 17. Excellent coffee and cakes. Service is great too!! Glad we came :)

It's a little place with good Ethiopian coffee. The staff is very friendly. The choice of the deserts is not that big but it's not actually a pastry-shop.

Went there on a Sunday based on the very good ratings given. There was only 1 employee on duty; and he was trying to handle the orders and making the coffees thus the delays. The place was full and was very loud. They only have FULL FAT Milk and no Milk Alternatives; which is essential in our health conscious days.... More

Attention: the address mentioned above is correct, it's their new address, but the spot on the map isn't (it's the old, one street further). The new location is a complete disappointment. Gone, the superb charm of the old place. The coffee is still good, but now Aksum has become "just another cafe". And the chocolate cake was one of the... More
