The Coffee Company

Posted by Pi on December 9, 2008

The new cozy little cafe on 45 Rue du Midi that has won my heart is called, straightforwardly, The Coffee Company. They’re open all week from 8AM to 8PM, and they have just the right style to bring Americans and Brits back home.

Though messy and cramped at times, the light still is bright, the full plate glass windows open up the whole space, and the decor is very comforting.  I am almost tempted to buy a bag of marshmallows or a mixer from them.  Of the three baristas I’ve seen there, only one plays loud music.  All the rest of the time it is a great place for relaxing, chatting, or passing the time with some reading or writing.

What with their good mint tea (~€2.30), coffee to-go (~€2.30), sugar-rush caramel pecan fudge chunk brownies, and wireless internet access, I will try to make it a regular stop.  Take a pass on the too-sweet, unappealing hot chocolate (~€2.30), even though it stays hot.  However, I will vouch for the deliciousness of the morning muffins.

Extras:  Open on Sundays, wireless internet, couches

Language:  French, but English is sometimes OK
