Went to Le Bon Marche for some quick shopping so walked in for a quick lunch. Excellent onion soup and good/excellent soupe de poisson, both around 10 Euros. Entrecote ribeye steak was excellently cooked--flavorful yet tender and it was a bargain at 20E. The steak...More

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
