We love to post about coffee houses and cafes that have a classic camera friendly aura. Le Pure Café, however, is more than coffee. It is an ageless brasserie, located in the 11th Arrondissement, a modest mix of blue and white collar businesses. It caught our attention because acclaimed photographer, the late Rodney Smith, used the café as a backdrop to illustrate a fashion article.
Pure Café has a crazy charm—not so different from other Paris bistros—but it is irresistible. Its magnetism welcomes you to sit inside or outside. It exudes vintage art and its menu is what you expect in Paris. Join the ballet of regulars over the generations.
14 Rue Jean-Mace 75011, Paris
