I only stopped by the café for drinks, but was glad I did. It is full of locals! You will feel like you are in Paris. The area is great for shopping and walking around. Many reviews of cafe's and restaurants in Paris warn of crowded tables, but this is simply the norm and part of the charm of Paris.... More

Cafe de Flore is a wonderful bar/ restaurant on the Bulevard St Germain in the 6eme arrondissement in Paris. Directly overlooking the street, this cafe has been around for ages. We are told that it was a favourite haunt of many famous artists, musicians & intellectuals since WW2 days. Highly recommended - book well in advance as tables in this... More

We went for breakfast at 10h30 and the place was crowded. Maitre d' super-disinterested in us. We sat ourselves down on one of 5 tables covered in other peoples' breakfast debis. Service very slow and many customers were showing dissatisfaction. A container of someone's leftover croissants were shoved at us eventually, plus a coffee and hot chocolate. No plates, knives,...

The café de flore is great situated at Saint-Germain-des-Prés. If you seat outdoor its Boulevard café style. Nice and friendly staff. 10 Euro for a beer is too much.

Nice place but service extremely slow and paid 20 Euros for the most unappetising bowl of scrambled egg and smoked salmon ive ever seen. Would not return.

I visited this place due to some reviews about it being frequented by some writers and painters but was quite disappointed by the tasteless decoration and the facotry like atmosphere inside. The decorations have no significant appearence of the artists or the people that it was frequented by. The service staff has rather harsh attitude and the cups and the... More

I love Cafe Flora. I have been a few times now and it is a must go to place to visit when in Paris. I recommend sitting outside where you can watch the Parisian world go buy for hours whilst enjoying the fine wine and cheeses. Only complaint would be that service can be a little slow during peak times... More

Enjoyed our hot chocolates and people watching. Our friend is a local and chose the spot. Is good gorgeous people watching inside and out of the restaurant. Can pop in for casual drink/snack. Is very fun and hip neighborhood and this is a classic parisian cafe.

Besides a good food and service. I just really enjoy the ambiance and location. Really nice place to walk at night and enjoy street side musicians.
