This place never guarantees you a seat. But once you get in, it feels so cozy. The lemon tart here is simply to die for. Must visit place for pastry lovers.

Atmosphere is okay. ( that’s why not just one star) Foods and drinks are just disappointed. Normal grocery stores like Tesco and etc has better croissant than theirs. Not to mention their €8 orange juice which is sour and mixed with water. Pricey, below average...More

This place is a historic landmark as one of the oldest coffee shops in Paris with its legendary clientele. It was pretty busy even though we came here for a late lunch. It's no doubt it was because of its popularity. I ordered the Flora...More

In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic

dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops,
ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants.
Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine
art school and small museums hide in unassuming
squares. The neighbourhood’s namesake church is the
