Cafés, bitstros, restaurants, bars (often all rolled into one) are so much part of Paris, so numerous, so individual and often so delightful that it's really impossible to imagine the city without them. How would anyone live in Paris without the cafés, their tables and chairs spreading neatly on the sidewalk, their waiters in black and white uniforms, the chalkboard menus in French, sometimes also in English. The cafés give you somewhere to walk to as you stroll around the city. Somewhere to stop on the way. Coffee, croissants, croque monsieur or madame, salade niçoise and other standard fare, always accompanied with the baguettes. It's one of the things you really miss when you're away from Paris.
This is absolutely not a comprehensive list. It omits many famous and wonderful cafés. It's a few of Paris's cafés chosen because of their attractive exterior. We have hundreds more in our shop so please have a look around.
