A breezy cafe with nooks and charm aplenty
L'Autre Café is situated in a cozy corner of the 11th arrondissement, just a few steps away from the Parmentier metro. It's open 7 days a week and I often found myself planning my days to end in this area so I could stop in and linger for a bit over a cafe crème (use this term instead of café au lait) or a cold, frosty beer. The wooden floors, high ceilings and mustard-colored walls beckon you to sit and enjoy a spot in a comfy nook in the back or to pull up to one of the tables situated in their open-air doors and windows. Life just feels right here - skip the tourist trap and rush of Café de Flore and savor your time here instead. (L'Autre Café also serves food which I've never tried and as dinner gets busy, they might ask you to move to a different table to accommodate their dining guests.)
