“Nice but posh neighbourhood”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

Saint Germain used to be Paris' intellectual meeting point and its cafés are proud to announce Jean Paul Satre & Company used to meet up sitting at those very tables. However, today the place has become a little too posh, with plenty of high-fashion shops at cafés that sell an expresso for 6 euros. Nevertheless, you'll find plenty of unusual, fun places to hang around and a bunch of interesting art galleries.

“food food food”
Reviewed 7 June 2014

ha
We went for a walk and to find a place Hemmingway caroused at.
but ended up having a lovely walk and looked at all the shops.
we found the cafe at monmarte hahahaha.
It was a lovely walk and we bought local food and had a pancake on the way with a beer at an outside cafe and watched the crowds walk around.
well worth the walk. Mike
