Kooka Boora Café

Kooka Boora, Coffee, Paris, Nichole Robertson

Flavorful coffee. Fresh milk. Both a rarity in Paris, but staples at Kooka Boora. I’m thankful to Lindsey of Lost in Cheeseland for arranging a meet up here, as it became our go to spot for re-caffeination last week.

If you’re ever in Montmartre or the ninth arrondissement, hit up this spot and order a flat white.

Here are what some of our Paris friends and bloggers had to say about Kooka Boora:

    I’ve been visiting Paris for a few weeks and was lucky enough to find Kooka Boora early on! Its a great place!

    I rarely even leave the house to explore Paris before consulting the David Lebovitz site.

    Based on the photos I was guessing this was a NYC coffeehouse. It looks like a warm hideaway from the Paris rain. Also, on a side note, I just finished reading A Moveable Feast and I’m curious if any of the cafes, bars, or restaurants Heminway frequented are still around?

    Aw, thanks for the shout out! I wish we had more time (and that you weren’t rained on) but it was a cozy meeting spot!

    After being in Paris for a few weeks with no drinkable coffee I was so excited to hear about Kooka Boora. I made my friends walk 2 hours with me to find it…they weren’t happy until they tried the coffee and said it was worth it!

    I’ve put this on my list for our next visit! I had a terrible time finding good coffee in Paris during our last stay but did end up finding Le Cotume in the 7th. If you didn’t already know of it, it’s wonderful for coffee (food is good too).
