It is worth it to sit on the sidewalk sipping a coffee or wine in this iconic setting. It is a grat place for leisurely people watching. The prices are high, but you are paying for the experience.

We went there on a recommendation and was ot disappointed. We all ordered the Croque Madame and it was a unique and delicious grilled cheese sandwich. There was a lot of ham in the middle and a french (strong swiss flavor)cheese on top. Not cheap,...More

The atmosphere is very nice but it's super pricy. Hot chocolate is a must try. Keep in mind you'll see many tourists and some fancy people in the cafe

Beautiful Cafe. Taking into consideration its reputation, we decided to visit the place. We had the most delicious hot chocolate ever! We really enjoyed it. However, it was extremely noisy and crowded. The tables were not very clean...What I really found odd, is the lack...More

I have been to Cafe de Flore multiple times - it's a must any time I come to Paris. I first came because of the history of the cafe and because it was reviewed as a "must" experience. The first time I came, not only...More

In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic
and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is
dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops,
ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants.
Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine
art school and small museums hide in unassuming
squares. The neighbourhood’s namesake church is the
oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented

First get to Paris. Get a cab and head for the St Germain area on the Left Bank and ask for the Cafe de Flore. It is a cafe not a hotel. Good luck!
