Brilliant cafe to start our visit to Paris. Recommended by the Strasbourg barista at Cafe Bretelles. Local to where we are staying and a fabulous outcome. Expresso was smooth and strong. We did not eat today but the food looked excellent. Staff were friendly and great.
The cappuccino here has the punch that I like from a coffee. This small but stylish cafe is often busy and deservedly so in my opinion. There's no wifi so laptop people (like me) don't tend to haunt the limited seats, which is probably the idea. The only thing I don't really like is the price of my cappuccino here. 5 Euro's (when most every other cafe charge 4) seems a bit steep. The coffee is good yes, but good enough for that extra Euro, I'm not so sure.
These guys deserve special mention. It is a great little space well laid out. Super laid back. Great simple food (Avo smash etc) coming out of their micro kitchen. But the special mention has to come because of their coffee strategy. They are constantly tasting different coffees from the great roasters of europe and then once a month they pick one roaster and order a month's supply of coffee from them. They told me the volumes and that equates to one of the better volumes for Paris. Volume often helps to make a barrista turn out better and better as well as more consistent coffees. Anyway, the special mention therefore is that it is worth going back to Fragment every month just to try their next batch of coffee. And if it tastes like they missed the mark a little, have a chat and you may find that they are still bedding in the coffee of the month.
