If you’re anything like me, there comes a time each day when your body kicks in and forcefully puts you to sleep. If, at that particular moment you need a jolt, you happen to be in the Plainpalais area, then Café Paradiso is the place for you.
The freshly designed interior, with its flecked floors and industrial style lamp promises innovation, and the same spirit can be found in the coffee and food offerings. The cortado showcases the richness of the coffee’s flavors, and doesn’t have a hint of bitterness. Homemade iced teas also escape the bitterness characteristic of over steeping. If you’re there around lunchtime, the whole grain toasts with avocado are a light and flavorful choice – a selection of panini will satisfy a slightly larger appetite.
Once the caffeine kicks in, you’ll have all the energy you need to tackle the MAMCO (museum of modern and contemporary art), just down the street.
