Les deux magots

I was invited to dinner in Saint-Germain, one of the most enchanting neighborhoods in Paris. What I didn’t expect upon entering Les Deux Magots, an old shop that was transformed into a café in 1885, was that great artists and intellectuals like Elsa Triolet, André Gide, Jean Giraudoux, Pablo Picasso, Fernand Léger, Jacques Prévert, Ernest Hemingway, Sartre, Simone de Beauvoir, and many others had also sat at the very tables where I was to enjoy my meal.

I felt like I was in the Woody Allen movie “Midnight in Paris;” I imagined myself in post-war Paris with jazz in the background and these illustrious figures passing through the doors.

It’s worth visiting to try the delicious food, soak in the glamorous atmosphere, and enjoy the neighborhood of Saint-Germain.

Historic cafe

The Café des Deux Magots is a literary café in the neighborhood of Saint Germain des Prés, in the 6th arrondissement of Paris.

This is where famous writers like Rimbaud, Mallarmé, and Verlaine got together. It still retains its classic Parisian look and serves up traditional French cuisine.

It’s still popular among locals ve come, above all, for a coffee on its picturesque terrace, but it’s becoming more frequented by tourists after having been featured in several guide books. It’s one of the most well-known stops in the neighborhood and it can sometimes be difficult to find a table.
It opens at 7:30 in the morning and stays open until 1am. The terrace offers unbeatable views of the Church of Saint Germain de Prés and there’s a little gift store nearby.

The only downside, as happens in all the famous places in Paris, is the price. But, if you take all the history into account, it’s more than worth it.
