    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.

    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.

    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!

    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).

    Historical cafe with French cuisine! Located in most expensive place, so the prices are .... My advice, to choose some aperitif drink and enjoy! Prices for drinks between 8-20 euros 💶

    You have to go here for their pastries ! If you don't know this place, this is one of the famous cafés in Paris. Try the Grog, this is the coffee to taste it.

    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

    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!

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    tipically the type of place you go to feel where (literary) history has been made. an unmissable spot for hemingway fans but rather pricy.

    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
