Bars & Cafes


A historic landmark in Paris since 1890, this cafe was a favorite of many great 19th-century writers and artists. French philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre always took his coffee and croissant on the terrace. These days you can drop in for either a quick snack or delectable desserts, or a glass of Champagne, having shopped-till-you-dropped in the district's luxurious boutiques. The sophisticated clientele that revels in the cafe's upscale style insures that its reputation lives on.
