Busy at 9 am, mostly men in costumes and chic ladies but I liked the athmosphere a lot! Good breakfast too and the croissant is superb!

We sat outside. Inside was stifling. Outdoors was great for atmosphere. We ordered hot chocolate which was pricey but enough for a couple of cups each. It was so delicious I gasped. Inside there are pretty period features.

I think this is certainly a café to visit in Paris based on its history and atmosphere! The coffee is good and the croissants are buttery and delicious! My husband enjoyed his omelette. I would go here for breakfast more than lunch and sit outside on a lovely day! Service was good by Parisian standards!

During our stay, we couldn't avoid visiting one of the oldest and the most prestigious coffeehouses in Paris. I enjoyed the atmosphere, the food (ordered their Cafe de Flor sandwich) and drinks. My boyfriend wasn't that amazed and disliked the omelette :) Anyway, it's a great place to visit if you are in Paris!

Paris is one of the world's best city in which to people watch and Café de Flore is a perfect place to watch Parisians perfect the art of flâneur. During my 10 days in Paris I made a stop at this busy café on almost daily basis. I would sit facing the street, with a café noisette in the morning... More

Rude staff, poor menu.......sorry I wasted my time waiting to be served a tasteless boring omelette. We should have left, but didn't think it was the right thing to do, but after waiting endlessly for food that we ordered and never came, from several different waiters who stood around & clearly were talking in French (which we don't speak, and...

Staying in Saint-Germain-des-Pres

Neighborhood 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 neighborhood’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 neighborhood where afternoon people-watching from a café or playing cards in a brasserie are a key part of the daily fabric.
