The Café de Flore, a legendary address

The Café de Flore, a legendary address

Frequented by the poet Guillaume Apollinaire, who received visitors at office times and turned the ground floor into a writing room and office for Les Soirées de Paris, a chronicle of Saint-Germain-des-Prés life, the Café de Flore is a legend that is celebrated for its famous clientele. It was a haunt of writers, artists, filmmakers, philosophers and intellectuals, including the Jacques Prévert circle, Boris Vian, Juliette Greco and Simone Signoret, who spoke of being “born one evening in 1941 on a seat in the Café de Flore”. Generations of artists have contributed to the myth of the Flore since its opening in 1887. Serge Gainsbourg loved to drink a double pastis here and the novelist and future government minister Andre Malraux invariably took an iced Pernod. Now you can drop by this legendary rendezvous to experience its considerable charm yourself. Don’t forget to take a photo of your coffee cup, emblazoned with the iconic name of the most famous café in the world. A small Parisian snobbery you should not resist! JR.
