Cafe Karamel

August 12, 2018

Paris is full of beautiful cafes, where one can spend hours sipping their Café Crème and watching the world go by just outside. Something special about the city of light is the fact that waiters here are paid a regular wage and are not working for tips, therefore, they are in no rush to get you out the door for their next client. Most of the time, you have to chase the waiter down for your check because it’s considered almost rude to bring without you asking first!

One of my favorite cafes in Paris is Cafe Karamel, located at 67 Rue Saint-Dominique, 75007, just next to the vast green placed in front of Invalides. The blue facade can’t be missed and the quirky inside adds to the experience with an old record player on display and still working! Choose your favorite album to sip your coffee with while you enjoy their homemade pastries, caramels, and an assortment of chocolates.

Owner and chef, Nicolas Haelewyn, spent his entire career at Ladurée before creating his own brand of Karamel Paris, a young creative concept, based around caramel. Caramel is an homage to his own childhood memories.

Of course, you must try their assortment of creamy caramels, But a personal favorite is the citron tarte, accompanied with a smooth cappuccino. The drinks and treats are all served on beautiful floral china plates and teacups.

Cafe Karamel presents a range of confectionery and pastry creations all sharing a hint of caramel. In addition to delighting gourmands and the caramel lovers, Nicolas Haelewyn brings a breath of novelty to the pastries with his weekly new creations. If you’re looking for what you dream of being a real French croissant and a beautifully made gourmet coffee, this is where you need to go.
