For those fond of iced coffees, head to the French Coffee Shop on the Maréchal Foch Avenue. Set with a retro, wooden interior, this café is inviting and cozy. If you prefer your coffee strong, try the café frio. If you’re looking for something a bit sweeter, however, go for the moka frio – a subtle mix of coffee and chocolate.
