BATIGNOLLES PARIS | WHAT TO DO AND WHERE TO GO
Batignolles is a village-like neighborhood in Paris that feels like Le Marais, but without the tourists. You can stroll around the boutique streets like a true Parisienne, drink coffee in the nicest coffee bars, and get some fresh air in the beautiful parks. We share our favorites with you!
Batignolles coffee bars to hang out
We love coffee bars and especially the barista ones. By all means, the real Parisienne coffee bars are also ok, but the coffee isn’t always that good. So we put a few nice ones here to visit when in Batignolles Paris.

Dose – Café Dose Paris
Not just a coffee bar but their pastries must be one of the best in the neighborhood because there is always a waiting line. Their clientele is varied from hip families to students and business people. This coffee bar is at the corner right next to a beautiful small park. It feels like everybody knows each other here and the crew seems to be very modern and English speaking is fine.
A coffee bar run by an older couple that is working very hard to make nice coffee with their small coffee machine. I have to admit, the coffee is not perfect. The atmosphere though is very nice. People with dogs that go off to the park pass by and it feels like one of the nicest neighborhood coffee takeaways (or take-ins) around. Also, the pastries look amazing and are ‘Faites à la maison’.
