Finding places to satiate your tastebuds Paris isn’t the problem. The difficult part is deciding how many meals you can bear to stomach during your trip. If we could eat 12 meals a day in France, we would. From the truffle flavored macarons at Pierre Hermé to the elegant flower petal covered matcha pancakes at Peonies, we’d happily spend every day eating in Paris if our stretchy pants could handle it. People watching is one of our favorite Parisian activities and there’s no better place for that then Café Kitsuné.
Café Kitsuné is in the center of everything and yet also tucked away. It has a wonderful terrace that overlooks the lovely Jardin du Palais Royal (the royal palace garden).
Maison Kitsuné (the fashion label) was founded by Gildas Loaëc (the former manager of electronic duo Daft Punk) and Masaya Kuroki (who is a formally trained architect) back in 2002. The Parisian brand is known for its adorable fox mascot.
In addition to Café Kitsuné, here’s a list of other neat little local spots we love across France.
In case you hadn’t guessed, Kitsuné means fox in Japanese by the way. The first Café Kitsuné in Tokyo scampered along much later in 2013, and the Parisian branch opened in 2014.
In addition to delicious coffee, Café Kitsuné also serves matcha lattes and a wonderful assortment of cookies and pastries.
We get depresso over bad espresso. Curious about some of the other amazing coffee spots we’ve taste tested around the globe? Here are some of our favorite cafés around the world.
Whether you pop into Café Kitsuné for a cute fox shaped cookie or a shot of espresso, this little café is sure to keep you fueled up before you bump into your next delicious stop in Paris.
