Cafe de Flore Restaurant Paris Photo Meg Zimbeck

The people watching — if not the food — is fantastic at De Flore, where tourists cram on the patio with fashion people and literary types (real or imagined) for coffee, drinks, and a little piece of Left Bank history.

Reviews of interest

  • Time Out (2012) “Bourgeois locals crowd the terrace tables at lunch, eating club sandwiches with knives and forks as anxious waiters frown at couples with pushchairs or single diners occupying tables for four… A café crème is €4.60, and the omelettes and croque-monsieurs are best eschewed in favour of the better dishes on the menu (€15-€25).”

  • François Simon (2010) “Sincerement c’est pas mal du tout…”
