Parisian Cafes for Anytime of the Day

While many people find themselves thinking about The Eiffel Tower upon arriving in Paris, for coffee lovers, this thought is often replaced by the question of where to get a good cup of coffee. Of course, The Eiffel Tower is great, but who doesn't love a huge cup of coffee, especially after a long flight accompanied by jet lag. Here are three popular Parisian cafes that promise a delicious cup of Joe:

1. Coutume Instituutti

Whether you are in Paris for a short trip or for an extended stay, you should make your way over to Coutume Instituutti. This cafe is a great place to do work (they have Wi-Fi) and to top it all off, the baristas make beautiful art out of the coffee.

2. Le Pain Quotidien

While you may be familiar with this cafe because of its locations in the US, its delicious food, coffee and impeccable service make it a favorite among tourists and locals alike. With wi-fi, loads of caffeine and delectable pastries, this is the perfect spot for doing work or studying. Find out which location is nearest to you, and don't forget to try their avocado toast.
