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.

Café Oberkampf’s petit frère: Café Méricourt

 

Café Méricourt, Café Oberkampf’s petit frère cafe, has opened just around the corner from the local favourite’s first location.

Café Méricourt is intimate yet light, fitted out with classic blonde timber, green accented window frames, lovely straw lampshades, and gold painted columns for a touch of bling.

When I visited, I sat solo at the bar where the super friendly staff chatted with me as I waited for my meal.
