This laid back café is housed inside the sleek and beautiful Finnish Institute in the 5th arrondissement. Not only does it serve wonderful coffee (check out their Facebook page for news about their speciality and seasonal brews) but also delicious traditional Finnish cakes and pastries. It’s bright, spacious and relaxed, the long tables are shared, it’s a great place to work (although look for the the notices on the tables, some are computer free spaces!) plays cool music and holds temporary exhibitions and evening concerts too.
- Coutume Instituutti, 60 rue des Ecoles, 75005. metro: Odeon
NOTE! The café is currently closed as the Finnish institute is using the space to build KOTI, a 5 month pop up celebrating 100 years of Finnish independance.
Open Tues – Sat 9:00 – 18:00 and Sun 10:00 – 18:00
