Update 2013: At one time there were seven large ?Milk? cybercafés in Paris, but apparently only three of them are still in operation as of 2013. These are the ones at Opéra (28, rue du 4 Septembre), Les Halles (31, Boulevard Sebastopol) and Montparnasse (5, rue d?Odessa).

The one in the photo, at 17 Rue Soufflot near the Panthéon, has unfortunately closed down.

Here is what I wrote about this particular ?Milk? cybercafé in 2011:

Despite the name, this is not a place where you can buy dairy products. Rather it is a clean, pleasant internet café where you can ?surf, work, eat and play? (as it says in English over the door) twenty-four hours a day on one hundred computers.

Ninety-seven of these computers have French keyboards, but the other three (the ones that are visible in the front window) have English keyboards, which are much more convenient for us non-French people.

(Actually I?m accustomed to using a German keyboard, but the differences between the German and English ones are minimal: the x and y are reversed and the punctuation marks are in different places, and some symbols like @ are on different keys. But that?s nothing compared to the muddle I get into when I try to use a French keyboard.)

There are two Vélib? stations nearby, namely 5006 and 5003. These are both Vélib? Plus stations, meaning they are at a slightly higher elevation than the rest of the city, so you are credited with an extra fifteen minutes if you ride up from a lower station.

Fourth photo: In May 2013 the ?Milk? cybercafé at 5, rue d?Odessa in Montparnasse was still open for business with 60 computers available 24/7. It is in a nice old stone building in the Hausmannian style, with the typical cast iron grates in front of the full-length windows on the first floor. The Vélib? station 14127 is conveniently located directly in front of this cybercafé.

    Long time ago France had a Prime Minister Mendes-France who wanted everybody to drink a glass milk every day. The only thing left are the yaourts.
