Café de Flore
These days, you don’t hear much weighty existential conversation floating around the St-Germain cafe with the green-lettered awning, once frequented by Sartre and De Beauvoir. The cigarette smoke has mostly been banished. Still, legends are legends, and it even now has its own literary prize, the the Prix de Flore that comes with 6150 euros among other perks, including “the right throughout the year to a glass of Pouilly-fumé engraved with the name of the winner.”(172 Boulevard Saint-Germain, 75006 Paris.)
