Recommendation by Lemi
Just one block down from Les Deux Magots, you’ll find Café de Flore. The two have gone head to head since the late 1880s, with Surrealists, poets, and philosophers hopping from one Saint-Germain café to another. These days, you’ll mostly catch modern-day celebrities when you visit. Take a seat by the windows and split a coffee pot with a friend. Before you know it, the hours have piled onto the small round tables in the form of empty pastry plates! They also serve alcohol, in case you want something stronger while you people-watch. Try a glass of their white Ladoucette, the house always recommends it.
