Hg2 : The Hedonist

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.
