Le St Germain cafe is on the corner 1/2 block away from our hotel.! We went for a 5 cheese platter with baguettes. So good and it felt French and the cheese were paired well. My daughter had wine and I had French beer! Our waiter Ben was nice to us and made the meal even better. We finished with... More

We had spent the day in St-Germain de Pres and needed a break. Au Sauvignon is easy to find and has quite an impressive wine list. We stopped for one glass later in the afternoon and were disappointed we did not have time for more. Of course they also have coffee so if not everyone in your party drinks wine,... More

This is a must visit whenever I am in Paris. Cozy, great outdoor table scene, interesting wines, and fun tartines (on Poilane bread, too!).

Started raining hard at lunch time and ran in for lunch. Boy did we get lucky. Had a couple glasses of Pinot noir before our food. Food was fantastic as was the service. They actually call this a wine bar (which it is) but the food was an unexpected surprise. The service staff was as much fun as they were... More

Small place, but with a really good wine menu! I only had cheese platter and the staff suggested a red and then a white wine to go with it. Loved all the pictures on the wall as part of the history of the place.

Real nice little place in St Germain area. Tables outside and also nice inside. Bio eggs and freshly made food like salmon and shrimps. Definitively a place to stop for a light and healthy lunch...or even for home made fois gras!

Go there for a great glass of wine, cold-cut platter and sit on the terrace to look at the people passing by. You feel so relax and delighted that you can stay hours there.

Yummy toasts with avocado, topped with egg salad and prawns. Enjoyed with two glasses of Kir (Creme de Cassis and Chardonnay). Was a perfect combination for a hot day in Paris.

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.
