A Place in the Sun, by Andrew Gentry

That perfect day when you find the perfect terrace table in the sun—and your socks match the decor. Meant to be.

La Boca, whose nondescript awning is marked simply with “LB,” has one of the sunniest terraces on Rue Montorgueil, which makes it a favorite of our editor.

A Warm Terrace, by Lisa Anselmo

The perfect order of terrace tables, draped with warm blankets, make this terrace inviting even in winter. Seen in the 8th arrondissement, between Parc Monceau and Arc de Triomphe.

Continuing our frigate-theme for Cafe Photo of the Week, La Belle Poule is also the name of a 26-gun frigate (see the ship in the logo), famous for her battle against HMS Arethusa in 1778, which marked France’s entry into the American Revolutionary War. Three other ships bore the same name over France’s history—one, commissioned in 1834, was charged with bringing Napoleon’s ashes back to France, where they reside in the Invalides (7ème).

Café Chair, by Richard Nahem

©Richard Nahem

Like Paris cafés themselves, their chairs are each different in their own way. Most rattan bistro chairs have been handcrafted by the same company since 1920, Maison Gatti. Next time you’re seated at a terrace table, look for the telltale gold name plate on the back of your chair.

Maison Gatti Paris, (+33) 1.64.29.11.84; USA: 212.219.0447

Rise and Shine, by April Pett

The life of a tour guide finds you up ahead of the sun, especially during the strikes in France when you need to walk to your destination. This image captures Le Nemours on Place Colette, in the quiet dawn hours, preparing to receive its morning customers.

A Festive Terrace, by Lisa Anselmo

Café Colette, in the 11th arrondissement, really takes the holidays seriously. This is just one of two trees (the other is inside) and the windows are painted by an artist. Despite the cold, this festive terrace is very inviting.

At Les Pipos, by Lisa Anselmo

©Lisa Anselmo

The bar at the popular Les Pipos, in the Latin Quarter, dates from the mid-1940s, and there has been a bistro or café on this site for the last 130 years. Woody Allen liked to hang out here when he was filming Midnight in Paris in the area.

Les Pipos was in danger of losing its lease, and its future is still unsure, but hopeful after the locals launched a petition to save it.

Wine & Pétanque, by Paul Boyd

Le Caveau du Palais in Place Dauphine is a wonderful oasis of tranquility, just steps from Notre Dame, where often the only sound is the clacking from a nearby game of pétanque.

Photobombed at Chez Camille, by Gabrielle Luthy

You might think his antics ruined a good shot. Just the opposite. Accidents are what make life happen. Captured at Chez Camille on Place d’Aligre, by writer Gabrielle Luthy.

Chez Camille, 8 Place d’Aligre, 12ème

This Chez Camille calls itself a “bar” on social media to distinguish itself from the other Camilles in Paris. But it serves food and keeps café hours, like any other. A favorite place of market vendors for taking a break during the hectic market day.
