The 16 Best Third Wave Coffee Shops in Paris

16 BEST Cafes in Paris, Specialty Coffee in Paris, Third Wave Coffee Paris

Paris is a city with no shortage of third wave coffee shops. In nearly every arrondissement, you can find some high quality caffeine to keep you going through the day. While there may be dozens throughout Paris, here are the 16 best third wave coffee shops I personally love to visit when I’m in Paris!

1. Fragments – Tucked away on a side street in the Marais, Fragments is a cash-only coffee shop that serves delicious lattes and more. They serve basic breakfast food and delicious baked goods as well.
76 Rue des Tournelles, 75003

2. Neighbors Café – Neighbors is the sister café to Honor, located on the edge of the Marais. Be sure to pop into Merci afterwards…
89 Boulevard Beaumarchais, 75003

3. Boot Café – This charming café is short on space (it’s a former shoe cobbler shop!), but makes up for it with friendly service and an affordable cup of third wave coffee. A latte runs just 4 euros at Boot Café – not much for Paris!
19 Rue du Pont aux Choux, 75003

Ob-La-Di, Paris

4. Ob-La-Di Café – With fun interior design and a charming neighborhood, Ob-La-Di became Instagram famous pretty quickly! In the heart of the Marais, Ob-la-Di is a great place to start your day before exploring this lovely neighborhood.
54 Rue de Saintonge, 75003

5. Fondation Café – Fondation is a small but charming café with outdoor seating. Perfect for relaxing after a stroll through the English garden, Square du Temple.
16 Rue Dupetit-Thouars, 75003

The Broken Arm Coffee in Paris, France

The Broken Arm, Paris

6. The Broken Arm – I love visiting the Broken Arm for its super fast wifi and ample seating space. They’ve got newspapers to read and a high fashion concept store adjacent!
12 Rue Perrée, 75003

7. République of Coffee – Just off Place de la République is this adorable coffee shop with pastel colored tables and neon lighting decor. While the shop itself is on a busy street and can be quite loud, they do offer a strong wifi connection if you have to work!
2 Boulevard Saint-Martin, 75010

8. Umami – Umami is located on a quiet street, also somewhat close to Place de la République. This place is huge and you’ll surely find a seat quickly.
22 Rue Béranger, 75003

9. Passager – Located just a few streets away from La Bastille, Passager serves some of the best coffee to the trendy 11th arrondissement.
107 Avenue Ledru-Rollin, 75011

10. Blackburn Coffee – One of the coziest third wave coffee shops in Paris, you’ll easily spend hours tucked away along the Scandinavian-inspired wood walls of Blackburn.
52 Rue du Faubourg Saint-Martin, 75010

Peonies Paris

11. Peonies – Coffee and flowers, is there any better mix? At Peonies you can have the best of both pleasures, and even try a pink matcha latte!
81 Rue du Faubourg Saint-Denis, 75010

KB CafeShop, Paris Coffee

KB CafeShop

12. KB Caféshop – I stopped in KB Caféshop on my way to Montmartre once, and never regretted it. With plentiful outdoor seating on a charming sloped road, KB is a great place to stop for a while.
53 Avenue Trudaine, 75009

13. Hardware Société – This quirky café is off the beaten path for most Paris tourists, but it’s certainly worth a visit if you like good food and coffee together!
10 Rue Lamarck, 75018

14. Honor CaféHonor has somewhat of a cult following in Paris, where they became known as the first independent outdoor speciality coffee shop! Honor is located right in the middle of a fashionable shopping district in western-central Paris.
54 Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré, 75008

Café Kitsuné, Jardin du Palais-Royal, Paris

Café Kitsuné, Jardin du Palais-Royal, Paris

15. Cafe Kitsuné – So much more than a coffee shop, Café Kitsuné is an extention of the famous french Kitsuné brand. It’s located in a quiet public square, the Jardin du Palais Royal. The inside space is small, but there are several outdoor seats for you to enjoy the beauty of the garden while you sip your coffee.
Jardin du Palais Royal, 51 Galerie de Montpensier, 75001

16. Coutume Café – The left bank doesn’t have too many specialty coffee shops but Coutume is definitely one worth a visit.
47 Rue de Babylone, 75007
