Paris Pit Stop: Cafe Kitsuné

the Place: Tucked away in the Palais Royale’s hidden Galerie de Montepensier, Café Kitsuné is the answer to all the thirsty shoppers in this premiere Parisian neighborhood. We took our mid-morning boosts emporté as we window shopped around Kitsuné’s fashionable neighbors and strolled through secret, royal gardens.

with Who: You can find a handful of the city’s most savvy locals, families and tourists who’ve all come out to enjoy the peaceful scenery. Britt & Meredith stopped in for a Cappuccino and a stroll around the Palais.

the Story: After conquering fashion and music, Maison Kitsuné branched into coffee shops, combining these two elements into one delightful environment. With two Cafes in Paris and one in Tokyo, the brand balances the art of modern and classic design. Setting up shop in what was once a Spinning & Weaving shop, we admired how Kitsuné blended their minimalist aesthetic into the 17th Century  Parisian Architecture. Wooden floors, marble counter tops and Haussmanian moldings make this petite space charmingly, one-of-a-kind.

Highlights: Top notch people watching and Kitsuné serves up one of the best Matcha Lattes we’ve had. It’s a brilliant thing when European and Asian cultures collide.

Noteworthy: The camera ready Colonnaded Courtyard is adorned with 280 Black & White striped columns, also known as Cour d’Honneur.  The art installations open to the public and makes for the perfect pit stop. Instagram worthy indeed. No filter needed.
