Good service, good people-watching, good omelettes. Nothing out of the ordinary except the non-justified high price.

We decided to have a late breakfast one day there. It was a nice place to be, although it was extremely crowded. Food is average but very very expensive.

My wife loves this place so we were there twice. People sit here for hours and they waiters don't make you feel uncomfortable. We had a cup of coffee and pastry and sat outside on a pleasant afternoon.

Nothing special about this place except I believe it is famous and a lot of famous people have eaten here (as far as I know). However, it is way over priced and certainly not worth the experience. I believe we paid 17 euros for a...More

In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic
and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is
dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops,
ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants.
Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine

squares. The neighbourhood’s namesake church is the
oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented

Louis Vuitton and Chanel flagship store is a must visit. Avoid going there on a Friday and try to get there early so you don't get stuck in a long line. Have fun!

First get to Paris. Get a cab and head for the St Germain area on the Left Bank and ask for the Cafe de Flore. It is a cafe not a hotel. Good luck!
