Lovely to sit where admired writers have spent many hours deep in conversation, but not the place for writers and artists these days. Four pastries and two coffees cost 25 euro! Beware the waiter who brings you more than you request...

Oh dear ... I love Paris but not this place. Go to say you did, but go for a drink and sit at the sidewalk cafe. We had mediocre food for high prices. The service was not great but OK. The best part was chatting with the other diners.

I have been to Cafe Flore many times over the last 25 years. It's a rite of passage and a must do for most new visitors so somehow or another we have always ended up here for a meal, usually breakfast. So their inflated prices are no surprise. Normally. This week I was travelling simpatico with my vegan niece. We... More

The service is a little bit slow, you have to pick the most responsive one to serve you. Coffee there is ok just stayed there to... More

When viewed superficially this is one of many busy and popular establishments on St. Germaine ,frequented by tourists as well as locals.The difference is that standards here are never compromised.Excellent Omelettes,salads,ice cream and coffee.Professional service and great people watching.Prices high but great value given the quality.

When you come here, you pay for it's history and reputation. Established in the late 19th century, it has hosted people like Picasso, Bardot, Belmondo and Juliet Greco, who frequented its red leather benches. The cafe is just down the road from its great rival, Aux Deux Magots. The decor is plainer than Deux Magots, but the sense of history... More

Staying in Saint-Germain-des-Pres

Neighborhood Profile
Saint-Germain-des-Pres
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.
