Shakespeare & Company's Paris Café Debuts

Shelf Awareness

"Fancy a Flapjack Kerouac?" asked the Guardian in showcasing the new café that opened recently next door to the legendary Shakespeare and Company bookshop in Paris, which had announced the development earlier this year. David Delannet, co-manager of the store, said the neighborhood has been excited and encouraging, with many remarking that it feels as if the café has always been there.

"Despite its small size, the café has a lighter and more modern atmosphere than the cramped bookshop next door, a famous hub for influential writers," the Guardian wrote. "Yet it shares the bookstore's signature eccentric charm. Dishes have names like 'the Flapjack Kerouac' or 'the Bun Also Rises,' and a version of the Proust Questionnaire lines the trays."
