Bright café offers a shot of the owner's Greek homeland in Paris

45 Rue des Martyrs
75009 Paris,
M° Pigalle

Possibly the city’s most authentic Kafeneion, or Greek café, this venue is as slick as you’d expect given founder Yorgo Tloupas’ design pedigree. Here you’ll find genuine Greek coffee brewed over hot sand, as well as iced frappé and freddo varieties, plus all the classic snacks, like tzatziki, taramasalata, or choriatiki salad. And of course the projet is a design and branding experiment too, with everything from the logo to the paper napkins designed by Yorgo.
