47 Rue de Babylone, 7th
This lab-like Left Bank coffee house (there are three other locations throughout the city) is owned by two pals (one Australian, one French)—and it offers so much more than standard espresso. For starters, they do to-go cups, which is kind of an anomaly in this part of the world, as well as pour overs and cappuccinos. Like so many Parisian cafés, this one has an indoor/outdoor seating situation making it a people-watching paradise. But you can actually get some work done, too—the interior is soothing, the wifi is free, and tables are roomy enough to spread out. You can also grab a quick breakfast or soup-and-salad lunch.
