One of my absolute favorite things to do in Paris is to go to a cute cafe and rest my feet for a while after a long, long stroll in the city. Sipping a yummy cuppa and enjoying a delicious slice of cake while having a fun conversation with my girls. At Le Marais, there is this quaint little cafe called Le Boot. Upon entering Le Boot Cafe, the decoration won’t be the only thing charming you. You’re immediately struck by a warm, friendly atmosphere. You are always welcomed with a smile:) which is always so especially appreciated. Feels so cozy and very laid back. However, do not be deceived by its size as it can get very crowded despite being so small. There’s the wooden shelves filled with pretty pottery, magazines, canvas totes and so forth, that will no doubt lure you in for at least a few minutes. Isn't the cutest place ever!?
Inside every good cafe is a great barista (or three!) and I'm glad to tell you that the team at Boot are the sweetest bunch of human being on earth.
They also sell a range of fresh bakes. One of my favorites is the banana cake. This moist cake is deliciously light and nutty. So deliciously perfect! Yes, It may be teeny tiny, but this is still my top spot for coffee in town.
