#1 Boot Café: the smallest coffee shop in Paris
Boot Café is a classic that we like to stop by when we are in the Le Marais district. This cute little coffee shop used to be a shoe store and you can still see that in the many postcards and pictures on the walls. Usually there is no room inside, but then we just take our coffee with us. Boot Café is a real Instagram hotspot and therefore very popular, both with locals and tourists.

#2 Café Loustic Paris: cozy coffee shop
Also located in the heart of the Le Marais district, Café Loustic is also one of the best coffee places in Paris. With excellent coffee specialties from the Belgian coffee roaster Caffènation. The bright pink cushions, decorative tiled floors, a bar decorated with bamboo make Café Loustic more like a cozy apartment than a coffee shop. This famous coffee hotspot is also very popular on Instagram. A hidden gem just a short walk from the Pompidou Centre.
