    I was looking for history, I found it here. You can almost picture Jean-Paul Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir drinking café au lait and sharing a croque madame. Delicious beyond belief.

    Sit outside if it is warm and in the enclosed patio if it's cold. The service can be rushed and the seating can be tight. But the coffee and orange juice are great and the people watching is too

    Love this place so badly! Typical paris bistro with small, but great menu. Everything is so delicious. I could sit here forever and look outside the window to see the real Paris life.

    A well-known address celebrated for its famous clientele. A great place for breakfast, people-watching and to see Paris waking up

    Must visit historic cafe, convenient location on St. Germain, table outside has heat lamps, order a Kir with Creme de Casis, s&p chips are great, rival next door Deux Magots

    A true Parisian experience with its rudely efficient garçons, interesting mix of St Germain crowd and tourists, and high prices. A perfect spot for people watching. Go there for a early/late breakfast

    Get a table on the sidewalk, have a cup of coffee or glass of cognac, make your day, read a book, gaze around, fell in love with Paris and Parisians, that what I did :)

    This all-timer still has its charm. Lovely staff. Great wine and cheeses. Perfect to sit, chill and watch people pass by. The cheese platter was specially good.

    Wonderfull coffe shop, where many phylosophers and writers used to meet and have phylosophical debates. Nice to sit, drink your coffee and watch the people passing by.

    Delicious hot chocolate but it's always hectic in here. If u wanna be sure you'll get a seat, either book in advance or get here past 4.15PM. Avoid the noisy kitchen area where waiters always line up.

    Sit on the terrace (obviously). Order a club sandwich and a Niçoise salad. Look at the beautiful people on Rue de Saint-Germain. Feel the sun on your face. You’re in Paris.

    Make sure to sit outside on side street side and treat yourself to a glass of champagne & soak in the atmosphere around you - or try to Le Flore four an extra buzzzz!

    Staff is very friendly. Sitting at the terrace and watching the street is joy. Scrambled egg with bacon is 12 euro and tastes good. Croissant is good.

    Chablis and people watching at Cafe fe Flore are a must. Can't tell you how many nights I spent here soaking in the culture. Keep your eyes peeled for celebs! All of the garcons are sweethearts.

    An historical left bank gem, frequented by Sartre and de Beauvoir back in the day. One for existentialist people-watching! ;-)

    This legendary café doesn't disappoint. The menu is limited, but food is good. 'Jockey' and warm goat's cheese on Pôilane bread were both excellent. Sit outside or just by the windows.

    Dubbed the most famous cafe in the world. As an aficiando of coffee shops/cafes, worth the trip. Try the Croque Monsieur, just add mustard.

    Great place to unwind. Great selection of salads and drinks from hot chocolate to champagnes. Waiters are not very easy to call when you want to check out and make payment!

    Mythical coffee place in Paris, full of history, celebrities and tourists but still one of my favorite place to have a late dinner or a simple coffee.

    It is worth a visit for a coffee...try the upper floor if you want a more peaceful atmosphere, or a place to do some writing...

    It was the strangest Caesar salad I ever had. With bacon. Rolling table. Sticky Onion soup. But legendary fleur is something worth to experience. Keeping in mind €50 average check.

    Looks simple yet the eggs were delicious, bread was crusty and best butter I've ever had! The cappuccino was pretty average and I wouldn't get it again!

    Best hot chocolate in Paris, omelette with mushroom and cheese is nice but the place is crowded, service is quite slow and not so nice.

    Objective Comment! Location & Its Parisian style is wonderful. Best hot chocolote! Napoleon as a desert is decent. Awful waiters and even worse attitudes. Beautiful place which deserves better owners!

    In Saint Germain des Pres, this is a great place to relax and watch the diversity of life walking by. Expensive but a Paris must. Try one of their egg dishes!

    The chef loves scrambled eggs Sunday morning. In the centre of St-Germain-des-Prés, the place is still serving its perfect parade of culinary hits to the who's who of Paris.
