Fodor's Expert Review Café de Flore

$$ St-Germain-des-Pres Café

Picasso, Chagall, Sartre, and de Beauvoir, attracted by the luxury of a heated café, worked and wrote here in the early 20th century. Today you'll find more tourists than intellectuals, and prices are hardly aimed at struggling artists, but the outdoor terrace is great for people-watching and popular with Parisians. The service is brisk and the food is fine, but nothing special.
