Croissant was very fresh and delicious. Service is fast and tidy. Plates, cups, glasses looks a little bit old and scratchy but chic... Could be cheaper but as a result, Cafe de Flore will be a good choice for breakfast in Paris.

We wanted to dine at the Cafe de Flore on our first visit to Paris but was unable to make it. We happily corrected this situation on our recent visit and were not disappointed. This is a busy cafe/restaurant, at all hours, and while most tables are vacant inside the Cafe, most visitors want to sit, like a Parisian, at... More

Lovely place and staff. Very parisian but full with turists. Food is a little expensive in general but it's a famous cafe so it's worth the experience. I loved and would go back for sure. .

Location. Terrasse. Service. Savoury deserts and coffee. Our after-dinner visits to Cafe de Flore were one of the highlights of our trip.

It's really expensive for no reason. You pay the name of the cafe and not the quality. Nice place but doesn't worth 6.50€ for a tea

We enjoyed a visit to Cafe de Flore. We ordered a glass of Rose and the rillettes- delightful late lunch! The cafe has a colourful and proud history and we enjoyed our visit very much.

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.
