A Cinematic Cafe in Paris
Average Rating: ( 0 votes)
Located on the rue du Faubourg Saint-Antoine, near the bustling Place de la Bastille, the Pause Cafe was immortalized in the 1996 cult movie Chacun Cherche son Chat. The sidewalk scene may be happening, but the interior is even more appealing; a mashup of brightly colored industrial chairs and tables, a haphazardly tiled floor, and a custom chandelier suspended from the ornately plastered ceiling. N.B. The cafe has no website, but the address is 41 rue de Charonne. Photos via Le Blog de la Mechante . Above: The custom chandelier mixes orange glass globes with simple industrial fixtures.
