His dream was to sip a coffee just like in the Kafeneion around Greece. Yorgo Tloupas, the big honcho of design ( A.D of Vanity Fair, the visual identity of Sarah Andelman’s company) created it. And quite naturally, his perfect small blue and white café with a little terrace on Rue des Martyrs is very close to perfection… In short: the paradise of coffee-lovers during the week and for a brunch or happy hour during the weekend.
Coffee galore! Greeks drink it all day long. Cold and hot… This is the first time we encounter these divine specialties in Paris: traditional Greek with grounds, un frappé ou un redoutable freddo cappuccino (3-5 €).
Another high, all the drinks have a holiday taste: whether it’s the cherry syrup,Mythos beers or the tangerine sodas to sip like in Santorino or Antiparos with orange cake or a fresh fruit salad (€5).
To be nibbled on the adorable small terrace: a delicious dakos salad, loukoums and all the signature Greek dishes : tzatziki, tarama, ktipiti, houmous, caviar of eggplant and home-made red tomato pesto (€6-8).
More good news: the possibility of taking off with yummy products (special kudos to the olives and Greek cheese) as well as fine Greek grocery products to upgrade a Netflix evening or a happy hour.
The famous Caprice “over-the-counter drug” claim to fame of the house... its famous small shortbread biscuits stuffed with hazelnut paste. Total addiction.
Don’t go home without one? T-shirts stamped with a map of Paris rebaptizing Parisian districts in a totally hilarious spirit…
Open Monday to Friday from 11am to 6pm.
