Some brands just know how to capture our hearts. French label Maison Kitsuné has long been a favorite of the 12hrs team, with clothes that transport you right into the heart of Paris, even if you walk down a street on the other side of the world. And with awesome music acts that they sign on for their great compilation albums.
So naturally, when Kitsuné opens their own cafe, we're curious. The first one launched in Tokyo a while ago, but luckily, the brand soon opened a second location in Paris. Hidden under the beautiful vaults of the Palais Royal in the 1st arrondissement, the tiny space is everything you would expect it to be: stylish, cool, and really good.
The beans for the coffee here are sourced on Kitsuné's own patch of Brazilian land, the cookies – shaped liked the label's signature fox – are from Noglu and completely gluten-free, and there are cold-pressed juices from Bob's Juice Bar on sale, as well (although they tend to sell out quickly). Yes, you can purchase the awesome cups and accessories and yes, they are quite pricey, just like the coffee and the snacks. But then again, when in Paris…
