I’m pleased to say that the coffee is still excellent as is the atmosphere and service. They use real milk, unlike so many other cafes in Paris (why do they use preserved milk?). The food here is also nice. As for the price, well, €4.50 for a flat white is fairly reasonable as opposed to €7.50 for mud at one of the famous cafes nearby.
Somewhat on the "tourist map" and more akin to everything but a parisian breakfast stop, Eggs and Co does satisfy those in need of the regular something-from-home brunch dish. However, the coffee sits just above average for Paris and takes a backseat when compared to the food. You will either think the interior is cute & quirky or crowded. Take your chances.
This cute little cafe tucked away in a quiet street off Rue de Rennes is truly a great find. Some of the best coffee I've had in my trips to Paris. Beautiful velvety flat whites, with a lovely after-taste. The menu is simple (and, unsurprisingly, is all about eggs), but dishes are tasty. A serve of traditional eggs en cocotte is a must before leaving Paris!
My best espresso coffee in Paris. Thick, velvety roast with a dark brown crema, the coffee isn't watery like most in Paris. They also clean their machine so there is no burnt taste. They value quality so they're not very voluminous, but the taste lingers for half an hour after sipping. They're quite cheap if you sit at the bench, only €1.50 for an espresso and about 3 for a Cappuccino, which has very creamy milk and even a bit of latte art. The coffee is a blend of Kenyan, Ethiopian, and one other. Mild acidity so it's smooth. Very nice place near St. Germain metro. No noise from the street and generally good music.
