Greens are all around us. Of course there are plenty of greens in the nature, but speaking of a more urban space we can spot houseplants in so many interiors – in private homes, galleries, boutiques, shops, cafés, restaurants. That’s why Judith and I have decided to dedicate this month’s Urban Jungle Bloggers post to green cafés, shops and restaurants around the globe. We are very excited to see what our international green blogger family will come up with today and over the next few days.
I used a short Paris visit to look for a new inspiring green space and I was pretty lucky. I spotted a fab new café through Instagram and contacted the owner, two days later I was there – in front of probably the tiniest and cutes cafés in Paris: Boot Café.
Boot Café is located in a typical Parisian street in the wonderful 3rd arrondissement and is tucked into an old shop. The entire old, blue wooden store front has been conserved and fuels the Parisian vibe of this rather international café. Owned by a charming French girl who had lived in New York City for quite a long time and run by a debonaire Swedish girl, this café attracts a creative and international crowd.
As someone who lives in a small apartment I am used to tiny spaces. Boot Café is unmistakably one of them. It is literally one tiny room with three small tables and a few stools, a coffee bar with a refined selection of hot brews by the hyped Belleville roasters and a scrumptious assortment of locally made cookies, this café is also home to half a dozen houseplants. Snake plants and philodendron combined with fresh blooms make this café a wonderful green urban oasis in the middle of Paris.
If you happen to travel to Paris anytime soon, I warmly recommend a little stop-over at Boot Café. Enjoy a good cup of coffee, be it a latte, an espresso or a drip brew, relish a cookie and take in the wonderful moment in this tiny, green café in Paris.
