What should I order? A Chai Latte and a cookie.
Wooden decor, a touch of floral wallpaper and the smell of coffee...Matamata (named after the town in New Zealand where its founders met) is a welcome addition to the 2nd arrondissement. The coffee here is prepared with love and care, and you can cater everything to your taste, from the choice of bean to the extraction process (Aeropress or a more gentle method). There’s the customary espresso, americano and lattes, but the frozen lattes are a godsend if the mercury’s rising: double espresso, ice cubes, cold milk and a few drops of strawberry syrup. Intense and delicious, it's perfect paired with a peanut cookie for dipping.
