    Fancy cafe, my Parisian friend took us there. They serve renowned Pierre Herme pastries. The Croque Monsieur roast beef & baguette sandwich are meant to be the best. Hot chocolate is thick & sweet!

    Café crème 6€; whisky soda 12€-16€; main courses 22€-36€. The café is featured in the 1973 film The Mother and the Whore directed by Jean Eustache and in the 1959 film The Sign of Leo by Eric Rohmer.

    Breakfast or late night glass of wine. Sit outside. There are cheaper cafés with better food in Paris, but few places better to sit back and enjoy the magic of the city.

    A Parisian must! Great for sitting back and watching people pass. Delicious coffee or tea and tartes or eclairs, served by elegant waiters sporting classical attire (who speak English very willingly).

    We visited this cafe 3 times while being in Paris. Really cool kitchen and service. Steak is very good and of big portion, Duck is also nice, Fish with spinach is a good choice for vegetarians.

    This café pushes its literary and intellectual credentials quite a bit. As a result, the food and drink is a bit pricey, but we enjoyed ours. Try the omelettes for a filling lunch!

    Bring a copy of A Moveable Feast and enjoy a Salade Deux Magot with a cup of the best Café au Lait in town. This popular French bistro is a spot Hemingway used to frequent and with good reason.

    Once frequented by writers such as Wilde & Hemingway, this place will spark the most intellectual conversations. Enjoy the chocolat chaud after brunch and it will set the mood for the rest of the day.

    That onglet de boeuf though... After a long wait at L'Entrecôte (best steak in Paris) this was the backup, and the steak was no less amazing

    It used to be the the hangout place of Paris intelligentsia in the past. Great people watching spot on St. Germaine boulevard. Don't miss millefeuille and Pierre Herme desserts.
  • Magdalena M.
    Perfectly positioned opposite St Germain des Pres church with delicious hot chocolate and croissant. Ideal place for an elegant French breakfast

    A must visit and fun cafe in saint germain. Wide variety of age, from aged old customers to young tourists (good clientele) !! Try their chèvre tomate and tarte tatin

    Classic French cafe with an amazing history. Pricey, but it really does make you feel like you're in the right place. A good alternative to Flore

    Try the classique dejeneure. Croissant, baguette, butter and confitures...with espresso cappuccino or other coffee choice.

    Les Deux Magots café in the Saint-Germain-des-Prés area of Paris. It once had a reputation as the rendezvous of the literary and intellectual élite of the city.

    Please forget the fact that the famous writers and artists used to come here. You won't see any of them here now not will you find any current author or artist. They're more intelligent than that. ...

    Walk down St Germain and turn left on rue de Buci you'll find tons of great bars and terraces with better wines, better service for HALF the price

    Best hot chocolate in the city. Served in a white kettle, it's basically liquid chocolate. Sit in the covered, outside area and people watch.

    Great food. Staff are a little serious and snobby. A little over priced for the food but it does have a lovely outdoor terrace and in a great location.

    Great croque madame! Service is friendly but also a little arrogant. Tables are close but it’s okay. Water is expensive a remember to bring a coin if you go to the bathroom

    The risotto and chicken was wonderful for us and so too the beef tatare. The hot chocolate is as everyone said, out of this world.

    Their hot chocolate is as delicious as it is thick, and their desserts are some of the best you could ask for.
