MOVIE Café de Flore Paris|Breakfast on the terrace of a long-established café - A Parisian Coffee Shop Review ✍️

Eating at 8/10 - Café de Flore
📍Address: Café de Flore, Boulevard Saint Germain, Paris, France
Closest Landmark: Église de Saint-Germain-des-Prés
Nearest Station: Saint-Germain-des-Prés (Métro)

Café de Flore appeared in the 1963 film The Fire Within. The café is mentioned in the 1975 song "Et mon père" by Nicolas Peyrac. Amanda Lear filmed her music video "Égal" in Café de Flore in 1981.

We woke up at 6am this morning and decided to skip breakfast at the hotel. Instead, we used the Uber app to get a ride to Café de Flore.

When we arrived, the café opened at 7:30am and we chose to sit outside on the terrace to enjoy the city views and take some photos. The waiter promptly took our order. It's a well-known establishment that is not a tourist trap, doesn't cater to tourists, but the drinks are quite expensive compared to the food.

A must-visit! I absolutely adored this café. The pastries were delightful, and the staff was incredibly accommodating. It's a beautiful café with ample outdoor seating, providing a wonderful way to soak in the Parisian atmosphere.

Café de Flore does not accept reservations but is open from 7:30am until 1:00 am, so it's best to visit during off-peak hours to avoid long lines.

This is an famous place to experience the classic Parisian bistro ambiance. It's a historically significant restaurant with a long-standing reputation. Café de Flore has been frequented by famous artists, thinkers, and actors for over 150 years including Hemingway and Picasso.

For breakfast at Café de Flore, you can't go wrong with a croissant dipped in hot chocolate or an omelette with ham and cheese.

The hot chocolate was good but not as hot as I would have liked it. The cappuccino was hotter than the hot chocolate, it's rich and delicious, and not too sweet!

The omelette with side salad reminded of my home-cooked meals which was perfect.
The croissant was fresh with a beautiful texture and not too buttery, which I really enjoyed.

After finishing our breakfast, we requested the bill from our waiter:
1 cappuccino - €8
1 hot chocolate with cream - €11.50
1 croissant - €3.50
1 omelette ham and cheese - €15

The restroom had lovely decorations and was exceptionally tidy. We will certainly return also plan to visit the next café of Les Deux Magots on our upcoming trips to Paris.

I used Uber again to call for a ride back to our hotel. This trip is part of our relaxing holiday in Paris where we are taking things slow and enjoying all that this beautiful city has to offer.
