Cafe de Flora was one of the best known cafes in Paris and the food and drink quality was totally worth the title. The staffs were hard working and great, the atmosphere (which I visited in Christmas) was extremely good and a cup of espresso...More

The cafe had a great vibe, you can literally sit there for hours and just people watch and chat with strangers. The staff were lovely and their coffee was amazing. Their desserts were not the best, but I did not try everything.

When in Paris this is the Cafe to visit and have a delightful lunch on a nice warm sunny afternoon. The service was friendly and the food was good. We enjoyed relaxing after walking all around Paris.

The cafe de Flore is a buzz, and definitely a place where locals like to meet. It is very very crowded and touristy as well ,Which doesn't make it very comfortable. The food is more expensive than most places and pretty mediocre. But you go...More

This was the first place we came to. What a great find. We loved it. Service was great and the fact it was across the road from our hotel was a bonus. A must try

Great option for breakfast because it opens at 7:30! Nice atmosphere, waiters are very friendly! It still has the essense of old Paris! Drawback: coffee is super expensive!

This restaurant is a meeting place for philosophers and writers. Pricey but worth it if you want to experience ‘old Paris.’

Came in for breakfast. Beside the hot chocolate that cost 8.9 euro. Everything was not to my taste (!!!!). Too expensive. The lady at the toilet wanted money for us to use it.

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

reservation at Cafe De Flore (4 Replies)
Hello, I want to book my reservation for the Cafe De Flore for my Paris trip in early September. I notice that Google doesn't have any website for the restaurant, so I was wondering if there is any and if I can reserve a table to prevent the long wait? Thank you for all of your help.
