I made two visits to this place on two different days. Great espresso, great location. However both times, especially the second, the service was really really bad and rude, even by Parisian standard. So if you like good espresso, but are willing to take your chances with terrible service give this place a try.

Located near the Seine, La Caféothèque de Paris is a great place for a coffee in an arty environment with a lovely and knowledgable barista. On holiday in Paris, La Caféothèque de Paris was my first stop for a coffee after walking along the beautiful Promenade Plantée for an hour or so. The coffee shop is located just off the bank of the river Seine and only a short walk away from Notre Dame or Bastille. Walking in, I was greeted by a roasting machine and a wide selection of coffee offered for retail. To order a coffee, I had to negotiate my way to the bar, but it was not hard to find. La Caféothèque de Paris has a few rooms, all dominated by wood, I think. I was sitting in a comfy little arm chair and looked at interesting paintings on all the walls. The atmosphere in this particular room was very relaxed and it was a pleasure to spend some time in there. And important especially for tourists, they do offer free wifi. It is limited to one hour, so if you're hanging around longer, you should probably ask the barista for another login. When ordering a flat white, I briefly talked to the lovely barista. Turns out, he used to work at a small coffee chain in London - incidentally I started my morning with a coffee at their King's Cross branch. Crazy, how small the world sometimes appears to be. He quickly recommended me another Paris coffee shop I did not yet have on my list - that's true customer service! He made me an excellent flat white that was second go none you get in London. It looked beautiful and tasted great. Unfortunately, they don't do fresh juices. So, after the coffee, he suggested a cold and refreshing hibiscus brew. It had a strong red colour and was a really nice drink for a beautiful summer day. The background music also made me smile, be it the Friends theme tune, "I'll be there for you" by The Rembrandts, or the nineties classic "Lemontree" by Fool's Garden. A fun selection that I don't really get tired of - although I wouldn't want to listen to those songs all the time. All in all, if you like coffee, La Caféothèque de Paris is a place you should definitely visit.

This is the place for great coffee and a dessert. I don't believe I have ever tasted better coffee. Cheesecake is delicious and the atmosphere is relaxed. It's a great place to take a moment out of life to catch your breath, regroup, and plan your next move. I love it and will be back.

Excellent coffee but 5.50 euros for a Capucino is a lot even for Paris. Having said that I have suffered really bad coffee in Paris for 3 or 4 euros, so 5.50 euros for one of the best sounds like a good deal.

Great coffee and charming place to spend a day with friends or work. They have different rooms with atmospheres between rainforest, Moroccan tea room or "normal" café. A lot of different types of coffee and preparations.

Small coffee shop/sandwich bar place. Cool vibe, close seating, friendly English speaking staff. The coffee was good however expensive that's why I'm giving 4/5 stars instead of 5. As an Australian tourist paying 5.50 euro for a flat white was not cheap. Didn't try and cakes or sandwiches so I cant comment on that. When you enter try and find a seat and someone will come and serve you. After you get what you ordered take the piece of paper they give you to the front desk and pay.
