Cafe de Flore

The district

Ever since the 17th century that saw the birth of the Café Procope, where used to loiter La Fontaine, followed by Voltaire, Daudet, Oscar Wilde and Verlaine, the district of Saint-Germain-des-Prés has always been a great meeting place for artists of all fields. The Café Flore and the Café des Deux Magots, the brasserie Lipp welcomed in the fifties the intellectuals, poets and writers that made Paris.
Strewn with antique shops, art galeries and elegant shops, this area of the « left bank » – or « rive gauche » still shines with a specific radiance.
