A lovely terrace, delicious juices, and refill-happy prices: Paris-Feni is a dream on a summer afternoon. Its fresh fruit juices are some of Paris’s best, with flavors like mango and mint; cucumber, orange and basil; and ginger papaya. The café, whose name comes from the owners’ home town of Feni, Bangladesh, also serves fresh, indian-influenced meals. Prices are more Bengali than French: a lunch of ginger-spiced mackerel, oven roasted vegetables and peach-mango juice will only set you back 12€.
The restaurant is located in the 11th’s Cité Popincourt, a quiet, charming square tucked off of the well-trodden rue Oberkampf. If possible, snag a table outside. While the restaurant can get a little cramped, the terrace brushes café perfection. Its stretch of tables is both spacious and secluded, and while interesting-looking people often pass by for your watching pleasure, cars never do. After lunch, wander around the square and check out the nearby brocantes, or antique shops.
