Sunday afternoon with the ladies from Lost In Cheeseland and Paris In Four Month at Fondation Coffee, a newly-opened espresso bar by Australian barista Chris Nielsen (ex-Ten Belles, that lovely cafe near Canal St. Martin). Standing room included, the tiny space fits no more than 12 people, but there is a terrace if you are up for the Parisian wintry air. The interior, designed by Chris’ Swedish wife, is simple and cozy (but no toilet…in case you were planning to stay long). And the coffee? One of the best in town, I hear.

Café crème (€4), I say it’s a cup of fluffy dreams.

Even a tiny noisette (€3) comes pretty with a heart.

The menu.

Pastries and other light eats from Emperor Norton. Didn’t try anything so I can’t judge, but online reviews seem quite positive.

I don’t know much about coffee machines, but this one from Kees van der Westen looks very formidable.

Cold winter? Hot coffee.
