Slideshow: My Favorite Places to Drink Coffee in Paris

Télescope
Télescope
Télescope had me at the über boiler, a fancy pour-over device for a perfect cup of drip. I also love their glassware, which has just a really nice feel in the hands.

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 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.

Le Coutume Café
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
Ten Belles
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.
