Le Peloton cafe, where cycling and coffee go hand in hand

Le Peloton cafe, where cycling and coffee go hand in hand

The concept of cycling cafés is getting more and more popular in Paris and all around the world. Such places usually provide tasty coffee in a welcoming bike-inspired environment.

Located between Hotel de Ville and Saint Paul, Le Peloton café indeed serves great coffee and encourages the cycling culture. My Instagrammer friend Miyo (@monparisbymiyo) and I ordered a latte, a cappuccino and some waffles. We have heard so much about their waffles that we absolutely wanted to try. As expected, they were excellent, very light and immediately melted in our mouth!

Besides this, the staff is also very friendly. With stools around the bar, anyone who comes in can easily start chatting with the owners.

Their bright yellow chairs around the cute round tables are my favorites. They give such a lively and cheerful look to the room, I love it!


My friend drew it!

Later, I learned that my Singaporean friend Zoe actually drew the bicycle on their window! We live in such a small world!

“I used to go there almost everyday. So before I left, I gave them a card with a drawing of  that bicycle. Then they casually asked if I could draw it on their window” – Zoe

I found it so cool that she got to leave her mark in Paris before going back to her country.

  • I love this place. It’s one of my favorite cafés in Paris. That’s cool that your friend drew the bicycle on the window! I did the bike tour with my best friend when she was in town last March and we had so much fun. It was great to learn about my neighborhood (I live in the 4th) and other parts of the city. I want to do the Champagne tour next!

    • Hi Brooklyn, thanks for your message (sorry I thought I replied you). I haven’t tried their bike tour yet, which one do you recommend? How was the Champagne tour by the way?
