Café Calva, freshly brewed hot coffee served with a side of Calvados apple brandy, is an old tradition not well known outside of France. Every café in Paris serves it, but it’s often an off-menu item that you have to specially order. Don’t be put off by that fact, though, the waiter will most assuredly understand your request.
