Cafe de la place is a old traditional place in Montparnasse. Expensive and nothing special. Only super thing is the crepes takeaway from Joseph. He got 5 stars for the best crepes in Paris. (Take care the crepes in the cafe are not from Joseph)

The namesake tower of Montparnasse dominates over the
landscape but the fun part is the throbbing life that
goes on below it. Bright lights, busy cinemas,
brasseries and diners encompass hidden museums and
parks to entertain the masses. Long avenues lead away
from the tower to take you to unsuspecting places and
historical monuments and treasures. In between lie
adorable ivy-covered houses with beams and small
