Why locals recommend it
A legendary cafe on the Left Bank known for having once been a magnet for literary giants like Hemingway and Rimbaud, it boasts the most coveted terrace in the city. When you need to take a little break from reading, all you have to do is open your eyes: The spectacle is all around you. The best time to come is late afternoon for a cup of tea when it’s swarming with passersby; that’s part of the spectacle of people-watching in this spot!
Tips from locals
Le célèbre café "les deux magots" 6 Place Saint-Germain des Prés, 75006 Paris
One of the most historical/mythical cafés of Paris. Charming and very parisian.
Iconic historic place which is good for everything from a cup of coffee to a dinner but it costs!
Another great parisian cafe; which is known for being one of the oldest and the favourite of Victor Hugo.
Café Les Deux Magots, is possibly the most famous left bank café along with the Café de Flore which is just around the corner on the Boulevard St. Germain. (Hemmingway, Sartre and Simone de Beauvoirall frequented the Deux Magots, whereas Picasso liked the Flore ).
Just next to Café de Flore, beautiful view of the Saint-Germain church. Best for a drink with a relaxed atmosphere

“Abbey of Saint-Germain-des-Prés just beyond the outskirts of early medieval Paris, was the burial place of Merovingian kings of Neustria. At that time, the Left Bank of Paris was prone to flooding from the Seine, so much of the land could not be built upon and the Abbey stood in the middle of meadows, or prés in French, thereby explaining its appellation.”

“Two huge buildings and one building is for food and the other is for clothes. High end shop but worth going just to look. The food building is my favorite and there’s 4 floors. Each floor is dedicated to either wine, groceries, kitchen supplies and then furniture. Beautiful place ”
