Get your specialty caffeine fix to go: KB Café Shop!

A true winning combination! Specialty coffee and a real French pan au chocolate 
There are a few things I miss as an ex-pat living in Paris. One of those things being a big cup of joe to go! Of course Paris is sprinkled with Starbucks, but what I miss is a good take away specialty coffee that has both quantity and quality. Although the idea of a giant coffee on the run is pure sacrilege to many Europeans, there are those who celebrate it like Nicolas Piegay. Nicolas Piegay opened the KB Café Shop after discovering specialist coffee bars in Australia and is one the rising Parisians leading the barista revolution. 

A Californians dream! Avocado on whole wheat grain accompanied by a fresh juice concoction! 
Located in SoPi (South Pigalle), on the angle of avenue Trudaines and Rue Martyrs, formerly Kooka Boora, KB Café Shop brings together foreigners, serious "bean heads", creative types, students, hipsters, businessmen and is a gathering place for the neighborhoods BoBo (bourgeois bohemian) "yummy mummies". Although KB's wide variety of delicious specialty roast brings all of these different types of people together, the café also serves up delicious healthy fresh home made bites, fresh juices, teas and deserts. With a killer location, wonderful "work" environment, a great large terrace and free wifi, its no wonder why people opt to sip their coffee at the cafe as opposed to taking the grab and go option! KB Café Shop is open Mon-Fri 7:30am-6:30pm; Sat-Sun 9am-6:30pm.
