10 Best Cafes near the Champs-Elysées


 

After a long day on the iconic Champs Elysees, there are few things more enjoyable than sliding into a nearby cafe for a hot cup of coffee, and a slice of something sweet or a generous savory meal.

Here’s my take on the best cafes in this area, in no particular order: 

1. Café Belloy near the Champs-Elysées

Cafe Belloy is known for being one of the best cafes near the Arc de Triomphe, and is within walking distance of both the monument and the Champs Elysees.

It’s a warmly lit, old school space that has that “local Parisian” energy, despite being in the heart of an undeniable tourist trap. The cuisine is traditional French, and you can come here virtually any time of day to enjoy the full menu.

I love this cafe, and have no single reason as to why. It’s probably the bright red setting, combined with the energy of the staff, the dynamic range of menu options and the way the space comes to life after the sun goes down.

Finding decent bagels in Paris is easy, but finding those that could actually compete with New York bagels is almost impossible. Bagel Corner does the latter, and its the reason why even American tourists come to eat here.
