Mirror, mirror on the wall… please forgive us, because sometimes we can’t help but indulge our millennial instincts and snap a ’Gram. Particularly when the facilities are as lovely as these.

Outfitted with Moroccan tile floors and black-and-white baby pics, les toilettes at this French café have a ridiculous amount of charm per square inch… you know, like the rest of the place.
