In the short time Bô Coffee has been open, it’s built a strong fan base of loyal customers who have all the fervour of converts. People actually get on the metro to drink a coffee here… I know! I feel lucky to live a short walk away, because there is a lot to love about this corner coffee shop in the Chamberi neighbourhood, not least the wonderful smell when you walk in.
I enjoy the “healthy not healthy” twist the menu has. Açai bowls and avo toast with nutritional yeast contrast with incredibly decadent cookies and that unicorn of the pastry world, cruffins. It is veggie friendly so there is something for everyone and it’s all beautifully presented and delicious. You’ll find a nod to the owner’s birthplace Venezuela too, in dishes like “tres leches” French toast. The coffee is excellent and they have some interesting variations on the theme too – matcha latte, for example.
They do brunch dishes such as shakshuka and croque monsieur, and if that sounds like a weekend plan, I recommend booking as on the weekends Bô is becoming very popular.
