I went there for breakfast with a parisien friend who really suggest the place. Apparently its a must! Despite the fact that when we arrived no one ask us for the table and waitress are very rude and unpolite. Finally we found a small table, was quite crowd and we wait 20 mins to have cappuccino and tea with croissants.... More

Must have place for tourists, really famous for having coffee with some deserts or wine and champagne. Very old typical French cafe decoration with friendly staff. You may feel like old parisien inside the place..

Had dinner across the street so stopped here to get dessert and cognac. They had a great selection of both and wonderful outdoor seating to take in the sights at night. Even though it's supposed to be a tourist hot-spot we had no problem getting sat and served quickly.

Cafe de Flore has a 'touristy' reputation but I still visit every time I am in Paris. Saint-Germain is so beautiful and this Cafe is a great place to sit on the sidewalk and take in Paris. The food is good, pricier than in some other areas, but on par for a decent Cafe in the 6th arrondissement. My last... More

This cafe is well known in Paris for its history, therefore it attracts a lot of tourists (like myself), but also I love seeing the amount of locals that stop by for their glass of wine. I think this cafe is great for people watching, as Saint-Germain is one of my favourite areas of Paris. Service is pristine, it offers... More

This was my treat to my husband who turned 40 last month. The cafe is full of history which mean so much to my psychotherapist husband himself. The thought that great and famous thinkers like Sartre,Simone De Beauvoir Merlou-Ponty etc were once there was simply incredible and us, sharing and experiencing the delight of that history in the present time...

At times more welcoming than Magots but you should decide by visiting them both. Great for tourists. Expect high prices as you pay for the legend...

One of the most famous cafes in the world. Hot chocolate was super. Get the regular one and not the Viennois - all you get extra is a small jar of whipped cream that tasted like the American spray can cream.

Meet your friend and rebuild the world. Art, literature or business, feel like the Parisian intelligentsia. Great cafe creme/croissant ou salades sur le pouce.

Staying in Saint-Germain-des-Pres

Neighbourhood Profile
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 musicians every weekend. The Luxembourg Gardens house the national senate, splendid lawns and flourishing flower beds. Famous faces and bourgeois Parisians frequent Saint Germain accompanied by the students of Rue Saint Guillaume and Rue des Saints-Pères. This is a neighbourhood where afternoon people-watching from a café or playing cards in a brasserie are a key part of the daily fabric.
