Why do we care if Sartre had a coffee there 30 years ago or more. Is this an excuse to over pay for a drink and a bad one that is?? Keep walking

Go upstairs where it is quiet. Cordial services. Downstairs on the street level, there is too much noise, though people love to be seen there due to Café de Flore's legendary reputation. Stay away from Brasserie Lipp across the street.

Cannot say the taste is very good but great to experience this place as it is a part of Paris package. The service is fast and kind and prices are a little above average.

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,
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
oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented

Yes I think they do sell their china. Unfortunately I have no idea of the prices. Why don't you send them a message directly or call them?

Louis Vuitton and Chanel flagship store is a must visit. Avoid going there on a Friday and try to get there early so you don't get stuck in a long line. Have fun!

First get to Paris. Get a cab and head for the St Germain area on the Left Bank and ask for the Cafe de Flore. It is a cafe not a hotel. Good luck!
