Time Out says
A stylishly minimalist coffee shop with bang-on coffee and snacks.
Set on a charming side-street off the eponymous boulevard, this minimalist coffee shop boasts simply a counter with fancy coffee machine, a workbench laden with food, four tables and a banquette. A bay window and wooden furniture complete the light, bright, companionable feel.
Order at the bar (or if it’s quiet, the friendly staff can hear you from where you’re sitting). Coffee comes from Coutume, and a cappuccino (€4) comes with a heart drawn in its mousse. Classic or Bircher muesli is on offer at breakfast for a healthy start (€5.50), plus tartines with jam (€3.50) or perhaps avocado and feta (€8.50). At lunch, there’s a regularly updated menu of toasted sandwiches (€8) and salads (€6.50), all made with fresh ingredients, plenty of fresh herbs and zinging sauces. Finish up with an own made cookie or slice of cake – a shade pricy at €4, but we’ll be back next time payday rolls around.
