Les Pères Populaires, WiFi café in Paris
Les Pères Populaires is not your typical coworking café, nor is it the type of French vibed place that you expect in Paris. Still, I find that this is a nice place to go and take my laptop once in a while. Les Pères Populaires is a popular bar/restaurant with a mixed crowd. You will meet the typical old man from around the corner, but also groups of students working on their thesis. During the morning and in the afternoon it’s nice and quiet. During lunchtime (between 12 and 3) it’s somewhat chaotic. So, make sure you come before or after the lunch. Or during lunchtime if you…well…want to have lunch. The food is affordable and very, very tasty.
WiFi and power sockets
I have to admit: the quality of the WiFi varies. It gets kind of slow when it’s busy, so that is something to take in account. Don’t go here when you are hosting a group meeting on Skype. Some tables have access to power plugs.
As I said before: Les Pères Populaires is a very budget friendly place, especially for Paris standards. A cup of coffee is one Euro and they sell a daily lunch plate for around 10 euros. They are open from Monday to Friday from 9AM to 2AM, and on weekends from 10AM to 2AM. The nightly hours are less suitable for working
