Most striking feature:
Although Telescope is famous for it’s coffee, I’ve tried their Jasmine infusion with a thick slice of banana bread. Delicious! Telescope is located close to somewhat touristy Jardin du Palais Royal, but you don’t see them here. It’s a bit hidden in a quiet street; in the Japanese quartier. There was a Japanese television crew inside to make a report of the place. And it looks like there were a few Americans hanging out there. One of the owners is from the States (the other one from Paris and the guy who helped us came from Australia) and the New York Times wrote a raving review about them. T Magazine is also available to read; fantastic option! Small yet wonderful detail: they use Aesop as a hand soap in their toilets.
