Sensual wedding anniversary in Paris and TOP coffee shops in Paris


I've heard a lot of complaints about the quality of coffee in Paris. To be honest, you won't get a decent coffee (especially, latte or cappuccino) in most of the restaurants here. If you are a coffee lover and Parisian coffee disappointed you so far, you should go to a coffee shop. Try some of the places from this complete list (links included). You can check which one is closer to you. Most of the places also serve desserts (like banana bread/ carrot cake,..) and food (avocado toasts etc.)


The city of Paris is divided into twenty arrondissements (districts). The first one (75001) is the historical center, the following ones spiral outwards in a clock-wise direction, like a snail. They all have 75 (Paris) as the 1st two digits of the postal code, followed by three more digits from "001" to "020" meaning the 1st-20th arrondissements.


Paris is also divided into "left bank" (Rive Gauche) which is below the Seine / on the south and "right bank" (Rive Droite) - above the Seine / on the North. Generally speaking, Rive Droite is two times bigger than the left and it has much more tourist attractions as well as restaurants and cafés. But Rive Gauche is absolutely charming!
