Le Loir dans la Theiere
On one of the Marais’ most trottable shopping streets, great for falafels and fashion, this coffee shop is always crammed absolutely to the gunwales; don’t bet on getting a table, and hang onto it for a few hours when you do. The name is an Alice in Wonderland reference (dormouse/teapot) and the two large, homely rooms are festooned with suitable murals, as well as vintage show posters and random character-adding bric-à-brac. There are 18 varieties of tea on offer, and excellent home-made cakes – mighty chocolate cake, a trembling slab of lemon meringue pie – are delivered to the scruffy tables by unflappable staff. The tarts and sandwiches are great too; this place would be perfect, if only it weren’t so busy.
