Meaning crush, favorite
Literally heart blow

Usage notes: The French expression un coup de cœur is often used in things like real estate listings. It’s like saying "you’ll have a crush on it!" Other possible translations are "you’ll love it" and "love at first sight," but with things rather than people.*

You can also use un coup de cœur in reference to a favorite book, movie, restaurant, etc.

Par exemple…

Appartement à deux chambres, balcon, cuisine américaine – un coup de cœur !   Two-bedroom apartment, balcony, open-plan kitchen – you’ll love it!
Notre coup de cœur à Strasbourg : Poêles de carottes   Our favorite (restaurant) in Strasbourg: Poêles de carottes

 * For people, a crush is un béguin and love at first sight is un coup de foudre.
