Cafe de Flore
Paris-St Germain and the Latin Quarter
- Great food
May 11, 2018
The Cafe de Flore is one of Paris’ landmark destinations. Its history is rich, its clientele legendary: Ernest Hemingway, Truman Capote, Lawrence Durrel, Jean Paul Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir, the usual subjects. It has lost some of its sheen over the years, inevitably, and now you’re as likely to have a table beside a party of guidebook-toting tourists as the Parisian intellectual elite, but it is also still favoured by locals looking for a chic place to start their evening or to take their breakfast coffee and croissant.
