A Creativity-Inducing Cafe in Paris

Julie Carlson September 12, 2013

Continuing in the tradition of grand Parisian cafes, where writers and existentialists held court, Craft Cafe, near the newly chic Canal Saint-Martin, provides a workspace and hangout spot for the creatively inclined. Plus, good design, good coffee, and high-speed wifi. Photos via Cafe Craft.
