Behind this niche coffee shop (Friedhats, Prolog, April) with a name as easy as ABC, you’ll find caffeinated potions (everything from espresso to cold brew), hojicha lattes and dirty chais in a striking Japanese/Danish-inspired space: a Soulages-esque facade, lots of blonde wood, clean lines, and a spotless countertop. Manning the Marzocco Strada AV from breakfast through snacktime? Margaux Salgado and Adi Salet, who used to work in the art world and the media respectively, both of whom delight customers with scones, black sesame mochi-muffins, kanelbullar (Scandinavian cinnamon rolls) or small cheeky savory dishes, like a soft-boiled egg with Nordic bread, Comté and whipped butter served on a lovely ceramic plate made by Charline Robache… and even homemade treats for your four-legged friends. // Carla Fouti 

THE HIDDEN GEM: A minimalist Danish sandwich (€6) made with whipped butter, Comté and cucumber on a sourdough bun made by the French-Taiwanese team over at Petite Île (Paris, 3rd arrondissement).
