    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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).

    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. ...
