The location (just off Blvd Saint-Germain, in the shadow of Saint-Germaine-des Pres), ambiance and people watching are the draw. Probably a bit less touristy and less crowded than its nearby counterparts, Cafe de Flore and Les Doux Magots. Prices are high (13 euro omelets; 3...More

I stopped in on my first night in Paris after a long and cold day of travelling. I was so glad to have my croque monsieur, petit salade, and glass of wine that I didn't really mind that the food was mediocre. Probably a place...More

Not the cheapest restaurant around, but a great buzzy restaurant.. The tables are close together, some of the waiters a tad haughty, but no matter for a French eating experience it was fun.... We order a bottle of Chablis, after the shock of it being...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,

art school and small museums hide in unassuming
squares. The neighbourhood’s namesake church is the
oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented
