Fondation has been a favourite in Paris for many years. Caught up with its coffee again on this trip. It's still all about the coffee and not much else. My espresso was very well done. Full flavour and smooth crema. My companion's flat white was fully up to standard as well. Competition nearby such as The Broken Arm and Ob La Di offer a more complete café experience with equally good coffee but I am fond of the hole in the wall style.
The lamingtons are a tell tale sign ‘Fondation’ is Aussie, yet the coffee’s standard was as far from it as the country’s geographical location. Baristas are friendly and the place offers people the chance to talk to each other as there is no wifi. Six out of ten.
