DOSE sits on rue Mouffetard heading towards Place de la Contrescarpe in the Parisian neighborhood famously known as the Latin Quarter. There is outdoor seating, but the morning I was there it was cold and rainy so I sat indoors.
I’m sure women work at the café, but upon entering there were three cute guys in attendance – all very nice and hospitable. The one on the register, took my order and explained (in pretty good English I might add) the café’s selection of baked goods. They actually have a variety of gluten-free items.
I was starving, so for breakfast I chose the pancakes which were topped with fresh berries, crushed hazelnuts and maple syrup. The mixture of flavors in my mouth was F-a-n-t-a-s-t-I-c!
Come for the breakfast or lunch. It’s all good. Look at that plate of waffles passing by! Or that salad with quiche! If you were interested in lunch, remember DOS is quite small or “cozy” as the French like to say. So there may be a wait for a table.
The café is really laid-back, but in a chic not ultra bohemian way. I saw people studying, working in their “café office” and those, like myself, simply out for a nice meal and coffee – which are reasonably priced. My pancakes were only eight euros
I would like to add, their coffee is accommodated by great music. We’re talking the softer, smoother tracks of, Dylan, Aretha, The Stones, Stevie Wonder, the Black Eyed Peas, French musicians, etc.
DOSE, a real gem of a café in a not so touristy area of the Latin quarter in Paris. Fantastic food, great ambience and a very good service.
