In Paris, the opening hours of cafés can vary. Generally, many Parisian cafés open their doors early in the morning, around 7:00 to 8:00 AM, to serve breakfast to early risers and workers.

However, it’s not uncommon to find cafes that open at different times, especially in tourist areas or depending on the specific business model of the cafe. Check the specific opening times of cafés online or by contacting them directly to get the most accurate information.

Opening hours can also be affected by national holidays and seasonal variations. On Sundays, some cafés in Paris open an hour later than usual.
