A modest but cheerful and clean café in a quiet alleyway in the Haut Marais, run by a chatty Algerian kabyl, serving simple couscous dishes. The fluffy couscous comes with a jug of vegetables cooked in broth, and a separate plate of chicken, lamb, merguez, or whatever. Local characters meet at the counter to pass the time of day. Alcohol available. Look for the hotel sign over the door.
