On a quite street in one of my favorite districts in Paris, Bastille area, is this gem. I stumbled upon this accidentally after discovering that Merci was too full in the late-afternoon to feel comfortable studying in.
The vibe here is very West-Side Los Angeles and by that I mean it is quiet and calm like a coffee shop you'd find on Main Street in Santa Monica or Profetta Espresso in Westwood (on a Sunday).
The hot chocolate is rich, thick, and not too sweet. Overly sweet hot chocolate just misses the point of hot chocolate I think.
Go anytime really if you're looking for a quite place to study/read.
