Between all the sightseeing, shopping and exploring your family will do in Paris, you’re bound to need refreshments. Luckily, local cafés and incredible brassieres line the streets.


Pop in for a caffeine rush, something sweet or maybe even a cocktail with a view while touring the City of Light with your family.


Grab an espresso for you and a pastry for the kids at The Caféothèque of Paris. This tight squeeze may leave you without a table for a few minutes, but definitely worth the wait. Or skip the line for a table and just take a few sweets to go. The eclectic style and quaint design may be deceiving; this café is a local hot spot.


When you think of a Parisian café, you’re actually picturing Les Deux Magots. This once café populated by literary minds and intellectuals of a bygone era is now a must-visit for travelers looking for cappuccino, wine and small bites — perfect for diverse palettes and moods.

Save Café de la Paix for your last night, a celebration or just to spoil yourselves with a few drinks, pastries or a full-scale meal for the whole family. The café’s opulent decor and central de l’Opera location is ideal for travelers looking for old-world Parisian glitz and glamour.


Take some time to yourself tucked away at a table with a good book and better sandwich or enjoy a breakfast on the go with the whole family at the Baguett’s Café. Your kids will enjoy the casual pace and people watching with street-level views, while you relax and plot your next move.


If your family vacations in Paris without trying a French macaron, did you even go? Head to Carette Paris and make the vacation count. Sit outside with an obligatory French cookie, rich pastry and strong coffee — all with the quintessential Parisian view. Your kids will be snapping pictures of the view, food and everything in between and with three different locations, you’re bound to find one on your walk through the city.
