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.

We went in at 12:30am for a hot chocolate... Wow, super hot delicious chocolate. You can feel the history in your surroundings.

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.

While plenty of tourist frequent de Flore, this is a solid locals hangout. Busy Parisians coming to and from work often stop in for a quick coffee and to meet up with friends. Yes, it might be a little pricy compared to other cafes in the neighborhood but de Flore is on a prime corner fronting St. Germaine with some... More

The Café de Flore is located at the corner of Boulevard Saint Germain and Rue Saint Benoît, a block away from its rival literary café Les Deux Magots (which I reviewed separately). I had a drink there (as often when I am in Paris) on Saturday December 13. around 4:00 PM, it was packed to the rafters, both the main... More

We ended up there without to know that the café was the place where sartre and all the other amazing philosophers used to go. We were completely annoyed with the overall experience, bossy service, mess, and prices! A club sandwich was 21 euros?
