Cafe De Flore, Paris, France: The Lowdown



​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.

Cafe De Flor
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).
