Good place to stop over for a drink

It is really a good place to have a drink or beer or whatever you want to drink It is in the corner of a major street and expect a lot of noise from the car .. But you should try it as you will feel like a local...

Great bar on the corner of Rue Buci opposite our hotel, the Madison. Great atmosphere & music. Happy hour for cocktails and beer 7-9. Good choice of cocktails. Friendly staff. Can thoroughly recommend.

This is a hot spot for drinks and people watching right on the corner of Saint-Germain and Rue de Buci. We did not eat there, great bar spots just inside the door. Quick and friendly service.

Just down the street from the more famous Les Deux Magots and Le Cafe de Flore, Cafe Mabillon is less crowded and a bit less expensive. We sat outside and enjoyed the parade of pedestrians. Excellent club sandwich and very friendly service. Very Parisian very relaxing after a lot of walking.

Just an OK but overpriced breakfast for such a bad service. The waiter, instead of working with clients, was paying attention to girls and dogs passin' by.

This is a wonderful cafe at the end of Boulevard St Germain and near to Pont Neuf. Yes drinks are a bit pricey - but you are paying for the location. Great place to watch the world go by !

Good location, on the corner of Rue St. Germain, but waiter was impatient with us and made us feel like we were being difficult, when asking him for wine recommendations. A shot of Makers Mark was 14 euros, and the Diet Coke was additional 7 euros, for a total of 21 euros for a drink. We won't be going back.

After extensive walking around beautiful Paris, we decided it was time for a beer and a snack. We ordered the "ravioli royale", a very nice serving of small raviolis in a light cream sauce and a generous serving of foie gras. Wow. Pricey? Yes, but what a snack!

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.
