I ventured into the pint-sized (or should I say shoe-sized) Boot Café a few weeks ago with the lovely Carin. It's housed inside a former cobbler's, hence the name. As Paris' smallest cafe, it is petit but perfectly formed, with three tiny tables, a little bar for tempting sweet treats and a wall of shelves displaying fashion magazines (one of the owners works in the industry). We popped in for coffee (they serve Belleville) and cake one saturday to escape the rain.
What it lacks in size, it makes up for in style. There are little green geometric stools, white tiles, posters and art covering one wall, old wooden floors, plants and a pretty blue front. I also love the little wooden crate filled with coconuts (they serve coconut juice - not your usual offering in Paris!) But the best thing? It's just a short walk from my studio.
What's your favourite cafe in Paris?
