Café Coutume

Ideal for petit déjeuner, Sunday brunch, and expert espresso anytime.

Experienced baristas serve up expert brews via their Synesso Cyncra with single origin beans and espresso-based drinks like vanilla lattes and cortados. There’s food here too on par with the coffee with options ranging from light and healthy (fresh pressed juices, granola with yogurt and roasted fresh fruit, “Detox Veggie Brunch”) to hearty (eggs Benedict with smoked trout). Or, of course, there’s the sweet side of the menu with baked goods like an orange blossom poppy seed cake and the deep dark chocolate chaud (hot chocolate). Inside you’ll find an indie vibe with distressed walls, communal tables and a row of industrial swivel stools lining the bar—a good spot for solos. If you sleep in, this hotspot is good for lunch, Sunday brunch, and afternoon snacks and has expanded their empire to locations in Japan should your culinary travels take you there.

Bitesee Tip: Sign-up for barista lessons at their Atelier workshop in the 10th (15-30 hours, for French speakers).
