Ok, are you looking for a place to take in the sights of Paris and do some people watching yet eat some delicious French food. I highly recommend that you take a seat outside and strike up a conversation with the people at the next table and take in the Paris experience. We ordered the classic French omelet and it... More

This is one of those famous cafes in Paris because of its history and reputation, and It sounds posh to be at a place like that ! if you like to be seen and watch people, then it could be interesting I guess, given that it's also full of tourists ! Other than this, the terrace is average, it's crowded,... More

We go to Cafe de Flore everytime in Paris. It is in a great location, among other well known cafes though this one is our favorite for the product. We go for coffee, no food. The cappuccino's are good; my wife gets drinking chocolate. It is not cheap ($16 euro) but we like the experience. The service I find is... More

Place where one should go for breakfast. The place is bulging with local french artists. The food is good and the atmosphere is traditional to french cafés. Service is friendly.

This is one of the grand, old cafes of Paris so you should expect classic surroundings. You'll get that at Cafe de Flore. It is also quite the tourist destination. Many people around us were speaking English.We had croissants and cafe, which were fine. Nothing special. The tab? $28USD. Was it worth it? Maybe not, but it's something you should... More

Satisfactory food, but not many choices, mostly eggs. Higher price than usual area Cafes. Would recommend for light meal or snack.

Fantastic place to visit at least for a drink, very pricey but worth it for the history. Some staff are very rude especially towards foreigners, but cest la vie!

Went here for the history and because it was so close to our hotel. We had a quick breakfast of cafe creme, tea, croissants and pastries. It was actually pretty wonderful. I enjoyed the cafe creme so much, I ordered extra coffee. Pastries were really good. Nice Parisian ambiance also, as we sat outside. Waiter was even friendly. My only... More

We actually planned to eat somewhere else for breakfast but being August it was shut when we got there and we had traipsed across town on the Metro. We wandered down the main road and there were lots of people inside so we gave it a go. We had no idea of the history of the building (I have just... More
