Les Deux Magots Restaurant Review

: Strategically located in the Place Saint-Germain across from the magnificent church, Les Deux Magots is the archetypical Parisian café affording a panoramic view of the attractive passers-by. Founded at the end of the 19th century, the wood paneled walls of this fine café radiate the historic energy left behind by the past patrons including illustrious writers, artists and thinkers of the day. Today, the café is frequented by an international clientele at all times of the day but is especially sought after for lunch and the evening aperitif. A pleasant patio is added to the original sidewalk space in warm weather.
