Top cafe recommendations from locals

Café
$$$
“The Café de Flore became a popular hub of famous writers and philosophers. Georges Bataille, Robert Desnos, Léon-Paul Fargue, Raymond Queneau were all regulars, and so was Pablo Picasso. The classic Art Deco interior of all red seating, mahogany and mirrors has changed little since World War II. The Prix de Flore, a literary prize inaugurated by Frédéric Beigbeder in 1994, is awarded annually at the Café de Flore.”

“Few know that the bar has opened an art installation. Called the Kiss Room, it's a single hotel room that guests can book for a single night only. The tiny space is absolutely covered in 1,000 mirrors so that it appears endless.”

French Restaurant
$$$
“The oldest cafe - restaurant in Paris! Established in 1686, yes, that's 1686 AD! Le Procope is a place full of history. Reflecting its prestigious and historic setting, the Procope offers traditional cuisine through different specialties such as Coq au vin and the calf's head. Full of tourists from all over the world and lots of locals too. Best to make a reservation, just in case.”
