Montmartre: Exploring the New, Hip & Delicious in One of Our Favorite Paris ‘Hoods

 

After living in Montmartre for several months, I would like to think that I know the area well. But even the small village around metro Abbesses is constantly evolving with new cafés, restaurants, and shops opening all the time. If you find yourself in the 18th arrondissement visiting Sacré-Cœur or the Moulin Rouge, make sure to stop by some of my favorite places that have opened recently:

SyLon de Montmartre

SyLon de Montmartre is a newly opened café located on rue Piémontési alongside the famous potelets by Le CyKlop, which are painted with the faces of renowned artists who lived or worked in Montmartre. With a wooden facade that you cant miss, and leather couches inside, SyLon de Montmartre is a cosy café perfect for enjoying a flat white or a slice of delicious carrot cake. Owner Carine is passionate about coffee and offers speciality brewing methods such as AeroPress, Chemex, and V60.

Paris Sous la Neige: The 18th Arrondissement

 

“She tells her love while half asleep,
In the dark hours,
With half-words whispered low:
As Earth stirs in her winter sleep
And puts out grass and flowers
Despite the snow,
Despite the falling snow.”

– Robert Graves, Complete Poems in One Volume.
