Noisette at Télescope
The pourover is delicious, but my favorite drink at Télescope is the Noisette. I think it's the perfect size—a bit smaller than a cortado but larger than a macchiato.
Le Bal Café
Le Bal is perfect for a late-and-lazy weekend brunch. There's space to sit outdoors and ample seating inside as well. As a photographer, I'm always drawn to spots with good light, and Le Bal has it in spades. I love the high ceilings, industrial lights, and dark floors.
Kooka Boora offers a wide range of coffee brews: you can order Clever drip, Aeropress, regular drip, French press, syphon, or even do a tasting of a few different methods. The inside seating is computer-friendly, while the outside is perfect for people-watching.

Le Coutume Café
Something about the romantic color palette of this café drew me in—it's a beautiful space. Coutume offers coffee plus a range of food options, perfect for whiling away a Parisian afternoon. (It's also just a quick walk from Le Bon Marché so it's a great stop after a dangerous few hours spent shopping.)

Ten Belles was especially a treat for me, because there's mezzanine-level seating that allows for a peek of all the action from above.

Along with Coffee...
You can't leave Ten Belles without trying some of their glorious buttery pastries.
