English Speaking Spots in Paris, Part 1: Boneshaker

I know it can be anxiety inducing to visit a country where they don't speak your language.  Of course, in Paris most people have some level of English and you should really try to speak in French when you visit, but it can be sort of fun to visit a cute cafe where you hear the proprietors speaking multiple languages behind the counter.  

For your convenience, I've compiled a list of my favorite French/English speaking spots in Paris. This is the first installment.


This is a doughnut shop.  In the light of this fact, perhaps you can understand why it is the subject of my first "English Speaking Spots in Paris" series.  Doughnuts are one of my absolute favorite foods.  This is pretty much the only place I've been able to find in Paris with real doughnuts.

Boneshaker is a tiny gem in the heart of a fun neighborhood in the 2nd arrondissement of Paris.  The storefront features a display of doughnuts, bicycle decor, and the window seats have a view of the lingerie shop across the street.  The kitchen upstairs is the birthplace of irresistible doughnuts, brownies, and more.

Peanut Butter Banana, Cherry Pie, S'Mores, Beer Glazed

House Made Lemonade
Organic Teas
As you will be able to tell from the photos you just scrolled through, I have enjoyed Boneshaker's doughnuts on multiple occasions.  There is often a new seasonal flavor to try which makes frequent visits necessary for an addict like me.  

Try any flavor of doughnut; you won't be disappointed.  Rumor has it that Saturday is cinnamon roll day, so it can't hurt to head over then.

Thank you for making Paris an even happier place, Boneshaker!
