You must at least have a photo outside this piece of cafe history if you reach this part of Paris. If you need a quick break it does serve a nice hot chocolate and coffee but you will pay for it if you choose to...More

The location is everything, food is average and overpriced. So you are paying for the location and over all atmosphere. The place is pet friendly but would not recommend to have kids with you as the tables are very close to each other. Would definitely...More

This is quite clearly a French local... staff seemed un-happy when they realised we were English. Everyone else got served before us. We didn’t offered butter, preserves etc. Food is very very over priced.

We ate lunch here (and were actually able to snag a table off the sidewalk!) purely because my husband and I are huge literary geeks. That alone was worth the price of lunch. The food was fine, neither great nor terrible - very standard for...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

Louis Vuitton and Chanel flagship store is a must visit. Avoid going there on a Friday and try to get there early so you don't get stuck in a long line. Have fun!

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!
