// PARIS // 10e // 


a minimalist cafe/bakery/boutique 

O/HP/E has great curb appeal. The minimalistic storefront is bright and inviting, filled with plant-adorned geometric wood furnishings. Inside, the café is open with a wide counter (with a tempting pastry case) and plenty of seating. Tucked even further in, there’s a little boutique filled with beautiful objects from ceramics to household knick knacks.

As a neighborhood café, they have things well covered from espresso drinks to a decent selections of teas and juices as well as house made viennoiseries, cookies and cakes served up on picture perfect wooden trays if you dine in. As a shop, they have everything from beautifully packaged jams, to Hasami ceramics and Kinto drinkwear. It’s easy to pop in for a coffee but leave with some goodies from the shop.

good to know

Go here for: a casual coffee and pastry breakfast 

Order this: peep the pastry case to see what’s good, they also have breakfast and lunch sets

Amount of time to spend: 1-2 hours for a lazy breakfast, or a midday break

When to come: pretty chill throughout the day, mornings are more quiet

Getting here: it’s right around the corner from Jacques Bonsergent (line 5), but also about a 5 min walk from Château d’Eau (line 4), and a short distance away from République (3, 5, 8, 9, 11)

Other things to note: 

  • They have different pricing for dining in (sur place) vs taking out (a emporter), with takeout being marginally cheaper.
  • While they don’t have wifi, and they have a no laptop policy, so this is not a good place for working.
