“Expensive for what it was!”
Reviewed 15 November 2013

Coffee was good as you would expect but just be careful of the small jug of extra coffee they put on your tray it is incredibly strong and was v bitter. Cakes look good and tasted good but not amazing.

“Good Italian espresso in Paris”
Reviewed 9 June 2013

I was brought here by my Italian client. I was somewhat disappointed by the quality of coffee in Paris, so I was happy to be able to drink the really strong Italian espresso. The line to order is always long, so this was not an easy quick stop. Waiting by the counter forever amongst other Italian tourists is expected. The seating is enough, so if you are tired from shopping, this could be a nice stop to rest your feet and leave heavy shopping bags from your tired arms.

“Wonderful coffe/espresso!”
Reviewed 13 April 2013 via mobile

illy must be the best coffe in the world! I was there twice during my stay in Paris.
This little cafe served a variety of coffe products all basef/made from illy coffe. Wonderfull! I have only had their espresso but my son tried their cappuchino and some other sort of coffe drink.
illy coffe is enough but I had a pistache pannacotta that was superb!
The café is very stylish and you could buy illy coffe and their special signature mugs/cups among other things.
The only thing that not was perfect was the staff. They was nice and so, but felt not so proffessional..

Thank balonka
