Shakespeare & Company Café

Cafe in Latin Quarter

Instant history was made when this literary-inspired cafe opened in 2015 adjacent to magical bookshop Shakespeare & Company, designed from long-lost sketches to fulfil late bookshop founder George Whitman's 1960s dream. Organic chai tea, turbo-power juices and specialist coffee by Parisian roaster Café Lomi marry with soups, salads, bagels and pastries by Bob's Bake Shop (of Bob's Juice Bar).

Not to be missed: a Golden Latte (€5.50), aka milky coffee spiced with turmeric, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, black pepper and coconut oil. Before leaving, buy a 250g bag of 'Assemblage Shakespeare' coffee beans (€13) to take home as a Parisian souvenir.
