Located in the heart of the central Presqu'Ile district, Le Tasse Livre has become a definitive must in less than two years after its opening. In the summer, its shady patio rarely empties and people of all ages can be seen enjoying generous salads, big glasses of ice-tea or choosing among the mutilple milkshake flavors. Upon winter's arrival, the warm and welcoming inside offers a nice bookstore & library, a wi-fi connection and a large choice of hot beverages. The place is a student's favorite and hosts art exhibitions on a regular basis. Le Tasse Livre is only open during the day and doesn't serve alcohol. It also usually closes on Mondays, although this varies depending on the time of the year.
De L'Autre Côté du Pont is a cooperatively-run cafe located in the Guillotière neighborhood. The place puts a strong emphasis on dealing with local and/or organic brewers and farmers as well as international fair-trade coffee producers. Ethical is the word here, and the positive thing about it is that it doesn't cost more, as De L'Autre Côté du Pont staff wants to keep their prices accessible to all. Busy during late afternoon hours and at night, the large cafe is usually quieter at noon, which makes their lunch meals even more enjoyable. De L'Autre Côté du Pont sometimes hosts small, quiet concerts on weekend nights.
