New cafés in Marseille

Marseille is not just “pastis”( Marseille local drink) ! The café arrived in Marseille in 1644 from Alexandria, and the city then hosted the first establishment dedicated to this drink between the Old Port and Belsunce. Since then, coffee establishments bloom in Marseille, and here are the latest ones to try to  warm up when the ‘Mistral wind ‘ blows.

Ben Mouture

Located at 34 street ” le petit chantier”, Ben Mouture is the dream of Benoit, a young coffee roaster, who opened this very nice place in September. In his coffee shop, you can drink your coffee at the counter or take it away and you can also decide to work from the café, on one of the comfortable armchairs with a good pastry as a bonus! Benoit places great importance on the origins and producers of its coffees. Some come from Brazil, Colombia or Tanzania, and are offered in beans or ground on demand. If you have any doubts about the preparation or conservation, don’t hesitate to ask Benoit who will be happy to give you his expert advice!

 

Café Lauca "la Boutchika"

Café Lauca is the story of Laurent, from Colombia, who returns to his native country in 2019. He discovers the art of coffee and the whole process of making it, it’s a trigger. In early 2021, he opened his rasting workshop in Aubagne. In August 2021, the adventure continues and Laurent opens his small shop at 68 rue Grignan where he offers his coffees ground and grain from fair trade, but also from sale of equipment and coffee machines that he comes to install directly at your home. The shop has only 6 seats inside, so we advise you to come early to enjoy Laurent’s great coffees!

TheTisserie

Back to the 7th district and more precisely to 142 street of ‘Endoume’ to tell you about “La Tisserie”! Opened before the summer, it is a specialty coffee roasting workshop, with accurate traceability and fair remuneration of producers.  La Tisserie also has very commited values: creating a link between coffee consumers and producers, offering products made by ESATs ( institutions and services providing assistance through labor), promoting local craftsmen via stands, and developing actions to promote equal opportunities. Their coffees are also available online but we encourage you to drop by their pretty shop to chat with them and why not enjoy a treat for breakfast or a snack!

The reopening of Café Piata

It’s not a novelty, but after a long closure due to sanitary constraints, it’s the return of Café Piata, the tasty and so photogenic address at 14 rue Breteuil. A fine selection of coffees with a high quality charter, which the owners discovered during their travels. This well-decorated, relaxing place for a snack break with pastries prepared  by Kevin d’Andréa and inspired by Australian, Brazilian and American sweets. Florent Dumas, the owner, also recycles coffee grounds to offer coconut, shea or olive oil soap bars in the shop. The place to be for a good time in the city centre.

Preview : La Buttinerie, café and flower shop

Opening in November

Something is being prepared at 103 rue Sainte, a new concept combining flowers and coffee. This is the project of the “Buttinerie” that will open its doors in just over 15 days! Imagine yourself with a good coffee in hand, enjoying a gourmet pastry amidst the aromas of flowers and their beautiful colours. After your relaxing break, you can also treat yourself to one of the shop’s beautiful bouquets. The perfect concept for this winter.
