Although it looks and feels like a home, both inside and out, this gorgeous place is my office! You might think I’m joking, but I’m not, well not entirely. As a freelancer, I have the privilege to choose where to work, and although many new co-working spaces are popping up all over Paris, Le Pavillon des Canaux is definitely the place where working seems most like chilling.

Decorated like a colorful dollhouse, this half café, half co-working space serves excellent, locally-roasted coffee (from Lomi, a Parisian coffee maker), healthy drinks, and tasty, affordable food, all to be savored while using the Wi-Fi and looking out on the Bassin de La Villette. Laptops are welcome during the day so that students, freelancers, and digital nomads can work and mingle in a quiet and comfortable atmosphere, but they aren’t allowed everywhere, so look for the small signs to be sure you’re seated in the right spot.

Le Pavillon also proposes a variety of classes, workshops, exhibitions, and cultural events. With a friendly staff, yummy snacks, and a unique view looking out on the water, what else could you want from a coworking café?
