Review of Meo 7 Cafe in Paris

Now that I'll be going to France in a few months, I'm starting to feel nostalgic about my semester in Paris.  Here's a review of a coffee place I loved:


Meo 7 at 95 Rue Saint-Antoine in Paris is right by the Saint Paul metro stop.  It’s a busy area, but most of the poor suckers looking for Wi-Fi crowd into the Starbucks across the street.  What they don’t know is that Meo 7 has free Wi-Fi, more interesting beverages, and a little bit of breathing room.  It’s a sweet lover’s paradise, boasting a menu of coffee beverages filled with Nutella and caramel, topped with whipped cream and crumbled cookies.  This is the Starbucks Frappuccino taken to the next level.  Or maybe the level above that.  Even better, the drinks come with a tiny little speculos cookie and a square of rich chocolate, just to make sure you get your sugar fix.  This place makes writing a six-page paper in French on Astride Briand and the founding of the European Union feel like a treat.


The little woman who runs the place is a refreshingly smiling face in a city infamous for its cold, fast-paced inhabitants.  She always speaks to us in French, which we are majorly appreciative of after months of having to convince waiters and shopkeepers not to switch to English the minute we open our mouths.


If you ever find yourself in Paris, check the place out!
