    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.

    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).

    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!

    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

    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

    A very typical French place. It has a cozy busy feel to it. I had so much fun watching the ultra French waiters.

    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

    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. ...

    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.

    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.
