Kooka Boora Cafe Shop


In the neighbourhood hotspot of South Pigalle, in an ideal location on the corner of avenue Trudaine and the rue des Martyrs, sits Kooka Boora, a new coffee shop that's already won over the hearts of the discerning locals. With its simple Scandinavian-style decor, complete with white walls, blond wood tables, comfy leather armchairs, and lots of light thanks to the vast windows, Kooka Boora fills up daily with creative types, students and mums and babies, coming to work, gossip or simply hang out whilst drinking a distinctly un-French cup of coffee. The menu features macchiato, espresso, cappuccino, and even a kid-friendly babyccino (frothy milk for sophisticated toddlers). There is also a large selection of tea and freshly made juices, as well as all kinds of sandwiches, cakes and cookies to go with them. Many things on the menu are organic and a brunch including organic bread and scrambled eggs is served on weekends. The free wifi is also a great draw if you're looking for somewhere to work whilst you get your afternoon caffeine fix. The menu features macchiato, espresso, cappuccino, and even a kid-friendly babyccino (frothy milk for sophisticated toddlers).

  1. That cappuccino looks so cute! I'm not near Pigalle very often, but free wifi and cute coffee make me want to go check it out. Thanks!

  2. Looks cute. But the important question is: how are the pastries??

  3. The most important question is how good the cappuccino was - not just how pretty... was it nice, thick and fluffy rather than a foam capped cafe au lait? FC

  4. Amy - the offerings are homely cookies and cakes, and whilst not a patch on the fancy patisseries from Delmontel round the corner, are perfect to go alongside a nice big cup of coffee.
    Anonymous - the cappuccino was as good as any I've had in Italy - nice and fluffy!

  5. A babyccino! An adorable idea to compliment a delicious French Croissant or pastry! I am especially fond of the foam heart! I am particularly fond of cafes on the weekend! Will have to give this place a try!

  6. Apparently, the owner got (at least part of) the idea after spending time in Australia. It's great to see an anglosaxon take on coffee in Paris, but there is still a lot of improvement to be made on the lattes if you ask us!
