Sip a café crème with a purring fe­line on your lap at this ‘cat café’ not far from Place de la Bastille. Cus­tomers are non­cha­lantly wel­comed in as if it were a reg­u­lar café; the golden rules are that you must not feed the cats or dis­turb any which are asleep.

Lam­i­nated cards give de­tails of the dozen fe­lines’ names, ages and prove­nance, and an enor­mous scratch­ing post wedged be­tween the floor and the ceil­ing is the main stage for vis­i­tors’ en­ter­tain­ment.

Turn up any time be­tween noon and 10.30pm (closed Mon­days) and sam­ple the menu of light meals, week­end brunches and home-made gâteaux.
