A Creativity-Inducing Cafe in Paris

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.
