Parisian hipsters have been working on revolutionizing the Paris coffee scene, but it’s also just as important to preserve the French tradition of cafés as a place of social gathering.
Here in the U.S. most people grab their venti hazelnut lattes (or whatever your drink of choice is) and take it to go, drinking on the way to work or while running errands. But in France, coffee has always been something enjoyed while sitting down with friends and chatting, or reading a book and having a cigarette.
Café Lomi, located in Paris’ 18th arrondissement, has the vibe of a Brooklyn café with its glass windows, rustic wooden tables and china coffee cups, however the café customers inside are relaxed and sip their coffee while sitting around tables with their friends.
The environment is friendly and the atmosphere is as warm as the steaming milk that the baristas pour onto shots of rich espresso.
