Café de la Table Ronde

Café de la Table Ronde Review

The second-oldest café in France, junior only to the Procope in Paris, this was a favorite haunt of Henri Beyle (aka Stendhal) as well as the spot where Choderlos de Laclos sought inspiration for (or perhaps a rest from) his 1784 Liaisons Dangereuses. Traditionally known for gatherings of les mordus (literally, "the bitten," or passionate ones), the café still hosts poetry readings and concerts and serves dinner until nearly midnight.
