Café de Flore is Saint Germain’s most famed social hub, but its neighbouring spot – Les Deux Magots – carries just as much history (and charm, for that matter). Sat on the corner of Place Saint-Germain des Près, this spot is equally bustling but less likely to attract tourists, so if you’re in the mood for a quintessential Left Bank dining environment, there’s really no better option. Time wise, we suggest a trip during lunch. And order wise, we suggest a croque monsieur alongside a soothing café crème. You can’t go wrong with the classics, right?
