If you are ever in the 7th arrondissement of Paris and need a break from touristy spots such as the Rodin Museum and Le Bon Marché, look no further than Coutume for a pick-me-up. This spacious place enjoys plenty of natural sunlight, giving it the feel of a Melbourne coffeehouse rather than a gloomy Parisian café.

Opened in 2011 by Frenchman Antoine Netien and his Australian partner Tom Clarke, Coutume isn’t only a café as they also roast their own beans and supply various restaurants, hotels and bars in the city. Regulars don’t only drop by for the specialty coffee; there is also their popular organic menu with plenty of vegetarian and gluten-free options. Brunch here can be a relaxing, detox affair (assuming that’s not an oxymoron).

However what Coutume does best is their coffee. From regular espresso drinks to their signature siphon brews, we sip our cups slowly and joyously. This is in fact the first café we stepped into during our Parisian visit and it is a welcome change from the chilly winds in the streets outside. (For those who need more warmth, Coutume also stocks artisanal beers.)

Brew away, Coutume!

如果你剛在巴黎第七區逛完了羅丹博物館 Rodin Museum,
又或則剛從樂蓬馬歇百貨商場(又稱貴婦百貨)Le Bon Marché血拼出來,
Coutume這家咖啡館是由法國人Antoine Netien和他的澳大利亞搭檔Tom Clarke於2011年所開設。

Le Coutume Café
47 Rue de Babylone, 75007 Paris, France
Mon-Fri 8am-7pm / Sat-Sun 10am-7pm

Nah, not yet. Compiling info and this blog is helping a lot!

*going to happen in September together with Ams’ & London’s* (grinning)

Wow, cool! Plenty of cafés to visit!

In Amsterdam there is a café called Screaming Beans we love very much. But we haven’t written about it yet, hehehe.
