Cafe de Flore is an institution. It had a grand history and is situated in touristy St Germain des Pres. You would be silly to expect great food, cheap prices and waiters who will bend over backwards to provide good service. If these are issues that are going to ruin your perfect Parisian holiday then stay away. The place will be packed anyway.
Sure, the food is just okay and not particularly cheap (hardly expensive either by Parisian standards) and the service variable according to numerous accounts (never had a problem myself despite frequenting it on many occasions). If you can grasp that you're paying for the ambience, a great location to watch the theatre of the street unrushed (even if you only purchase one drink) and the experience of hanging out at an institution, then is place is for you.
