Sunday’s in Paris are typically considered a day of rest for everyone – including many restaurants and coffee shops. This leaves Sunday being the least lively day of the week, which includes its Café scene. Luckily there are still options for those looking to have a lazy Sunday and a cup of craft roasted coffee to go with. Parisians are fortunate to have a few baristas who hop out of their bed on Sunday morning so we can roll out of ours for a café filtre. Not only are there some great options for coffee shops open on Sunday in Paris, many of these addresses have an innovative approach to the standard coffee shop, offering not just a great selection of hot beverages, but also a fun way to spend your Sunday. Here are a few favorite spots for a leisurely Sunday café experience in Paris:
This cozy café is as friendly as its name suggests, and is a welcome addition to a neighborhood that was seriously lacking high-quality coffee options. Neighbours, which is brought to you by the team behind Honor Café, is the perfect spot for a Sunday morning session due to it’s proximity to the Marché Bastille. After a morning of market shopping, stroll to Neighbours and enjoy their exceptional brunch menu, including sourdough crumpets with a variety of accompaniments, toasted granola, and the house specialty grilled banana bread with espresso butter. Added bonus: all day brunch cocktails!
Location: 89 boulevard Beaumarchais, 75003
Metro: Bastille (line 1, 5, & 8)
2. Le Peloton Café
If the promise of hot-off-the-griddle waffles and freshly roasted coffee aren’t enough to get you to Le Peloton Café consider the fact that once your full and caffeinated this charming concept coffee shop can also hook you up with a rental bike for a day of cycling and city exploring. Combining coffee and bike geekiness in one spot, Le Peloton is the perfect place to start a fun Sunday date or embark on a two-wheeled sightseeing adventure. They even have a tandem bike available for those who want to be extra adorable while discovering the city à deux.
Location: 17 rue du Pont Louis Philippe, 75004
Metro: Saint Paul (line 1)
3: Shakespeare & Co. Café
This long-awaited addition to the legendary Left Bank bookshop, Shakespeare & Co. Café is an instant favorite among book and coffee lovers alike. Similar to the shop, the café is open every day (except Christmas). Fresh baked goods from Bob’s Bake Shop and coffee from 18th arrondissement roaster Café Lomi will get your Sunday off to a great start, especially when paired with a good book!
Location: 37 rue de la Bûcherie, 75005
Metro: St. Michel-Notre Dame (line 4)
4: Fringe Coffee
Fringe Coffee is dedicated to celebrating “the art of coffee food & photography”. The café’s discerning menu (only single origin coffee, homemade food made with locally sourced ingredients) assures high-quality dining and the staff’s passion for photography makes the experience high brow. Owner Jeff Hargrove, a professional photographer, and coffee geek curates regularly changing photography exhibits in the café space, making it a perfect spot for a Sunday of caffeine and culture.
Location: 106 rue de Turenne
Metro: Filles du Calvaire (line 8)
5: Hardware Société
It seems hard to imagine what people did on Sundays before the invention of brunch. However, in Paris the pre-brunch days aren’t such a distant memory, as breakfast, in general, is a somewhat new event in the city’s dining scene. Luckily for us, Hardware Société is one of the brunch positive places replacing our morning croissant with stacks of pain perdu and endless eggy brunch options. The coffee at this Franco-Australian owned coffee shop is unsurprisingly on point and the menu will be the only one you need to see all day, no one leaves Hardware Société hungry!
Location: 10 rue Lamarck, 75018
Metro: Chateau Rouge (line 4)
