If you want to go to a classic Parisian brasserie, check out Cafe De Flore at 172 Boulevard St. Germain des Pres on the Left Bank.
It was known as a place where intellectuals and artists would go to converse, dine and people watch. Among the brasserie’s most notable habitues: existentialists Jean Paul-Satre and Simone de Beauvoir.
This is what it looks like at mid-day on a Sunday where Parisians are enjoying their dejeuner (lunch). I actually ate a cheese omelette and a drank a coffee with milk (un cafe creme).
If you want to eat a dessert with your coffee, Cafe De Flor offers a wide range of desserts (pictured here).
At 2pm on a Sunday, there is a line to get in. If you go for lunch on a Sunday, make sure to arrive before noon.
That’s the Lowdown!
