Café de Flore - Paris

Café de Flore, Simone de Beauvoir, Sartre
Paris is full of wonderful cafés and after some time in this city you will find yourself coming back to the same ones over and over again. This is the luxury one with so much history. The place was opened in 1887 and has been popular ever since. It was here that Simone de Beauvoir and Jean Paul Sartre spent there time with the intellectuals from 1939 onwards and created the existentialism. This place was also earlier frequented by Picasso and Giacometti. It was also here that André Breton and Louis Aragon created the new world - Surrealism.
Today this is a pricy place to visit but well worth while. It is the place to see and be seen. It is a nice combination of locals and tourists. Today I sat next to an old man the was drawing the clients on a sketch board. That's not everyday you see that in your local café. Every year they also give the Prix Flore to the best French book of the year.
Open daily at 172 Boulevard St Germain.
Metro. St Germain de Près.
