    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.

    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!

    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.
  • Karri S.
    Famous with a reputation as the rendezvous of the literary and intellectual élite of the city. It is associated with famous names, such as Simone de Beauvoir, Jean-Paul Sartre, Ernest Hemingway

    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. ...

    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.

    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.

    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

    The Paris of artists, writers & philosophers like Picasso, Matisse and Oscar Wilde spent their days in cafe life at this favorite haunt. Enjoy a romantic drink here with your loved one.

    The service is fine! Americans need to understand the French are in no hurry to turn your table and they give you time to enjoy your meal or coffee. If you want snappy service stay home! Food is ok

    Hemingway, Sartre, Picasso and Camus frequented this restaurant. Great spot on blvd st. germain and amazing menu. Be sure to get a spot on the patio for people watching.

    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

    We've been impressed by the friendly service and the wonderful atmosphere during our dinner. We sit outside and I order the Ben with risotto as a side. Truly amazing!
  • Gozde Ç.
    The place smells very heavy fish or burnt oil. We sit and left the place before ordering. Café price is more expensive than around rest. as far as i read in the menu. Not recommended at all.

    Avoid going to toilettes. It's not free, but that is not written anywhere, so I just asked an old lady at the entrance "should I pay?". Guess what? She made a grimace and threw 50c coin at the table.

    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.

    (1) Spread the butter on the bread(2) Don't be shy and sink the bread into the chocolate(3) Eat the resulting mix (optional, close your eyes)You are welcome.

    16.50 € for a glass of De La Motte Champagne that was opened so long ago there were a half a dozen bubbles left; served with cheap peanuts by an arrogant server.

    I couldn't even imagine such arrogant bastards working as waiters here. This place is historical, how dare anyone spoil it all ! How can any restaurant boss hire those people who disrespect guests?

    An iconic cafe in the Saint Germain district. Said to be a favorite spot of the art and literary elite including Ernest Hemingway and Pablo Picasso. Perfect spot for breakfast and a cappuccino.

    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.

    Everything is overpriced, but breakfast offer is reasonable. I know it's not what it used to be but I enjoyed the atmosphere nevertheless

    This incredibly famous café serves up a relatively expensive, but delicious menu. The hot chocolate is incredible - best in the 6th.

    Unfortunately, no absinthe, so you can't actually BE Hemingway or Fitzgerald. (Although you can order a drink called the Hemingway.)

    One of the lovely cafés in Saint Germain des Pres. Sit outside and order from the special dinner menu served after 7pm!

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

    Let's face it....the food is OK. There are better joints. But the history....it's one of those spots you have to go to.
  • Ashley Yuki
    Overpriced, but worth sitting outside on a nice day and experiencing once. I wouldn't go back.

    Outdoor area is a great spot to people watch while enjoying some excellent cocktails and desserts.
  • Chef Alexis U.
    Make a reservation, it's just courteous. And order the beef tar tare and ask for some mustard. You'll thank me later.

    Hands down the best Caesar Salad I've ever had (also the most expensive, but at least it was worth it).
  • Gustavo S.

    This isn't a one-time report. We were silly enough to try THREE different times with the same horrible results. AVOID THIS TOURIST TRAP
