If you are in Forth Worth, Texas, you must make a visit over to the well known coffee shop; known as Paris Coffee Shop located at 704 West Magnolia Street. The people and food are simply “fantastic!” The food is homemade and it’s obvious that the owner, Mike and his family have put their hearts and souls into this restaurant. Mike took over the family business in 1965, and has been running with it ever since.
Mike can be found chatting with his customers and blending right in with the folks in his coffee shop. He wants you to feel at home and return for another visit.
I must admit, if the local folks had not recommended this coffee shop to me; I might not have stopped to check it out. The food here is absolutely amazing! I dined here for breakfast. Two meals are served Monday-Saturday: Breakfast and Lunch. Mike can usually be found in the kitchen, as early as 3:30 a.m. beginning the prep work for each day. The pies you find here are fresh and made from whole ingredients. I must add, if you are on a diet, skip the diet when you visit Paris Coffee Shop.
The pie here is made from scratch. Mike uses real whipping cream, lard, yeast and all the necessary ingredients for preparing homemade foods for your taste buds. Mid-morning is the ideal time to come for the pie, as it’s after breakfast and right before lunch is served!
If you happen to love a homemade cinnamon roll, Mike and his crew have you covered!
I was not here on a Thursday, but I must tell you that Mike shared that people begin lining up for his famous chicken and dumplings long before they start serving at 11:00 a.m. The local folks know that his chicken and dumplings are the best and once they are gone, they are gone. Homemade taste at a fabulous price will bring people in, day after day.
