Most Parisiens take their coffee standing up at the bar, talking to some mates hanging out with them. If not, they like to have a look at who’s passing by but some of them like to read their newspaper. Not all the places have them but one of these places is Le relais Odeon.
At the carrefour de l’Odéon, this Art Deco café has a marvelous pewter bar, fantastic bar stools, and a cozy interior. Read the excellent local daily Le ? Parisien, the conservative Le Figaro, or check up on the latest rugby scores in L’Equipe.
