Not only does it have an incredible history as the old hangout of figures like Picasso and Hemingway, but the entire experience is memorable. The food was among the best I've had Paris, especially the desserts! It is a bit pricey, but worth it for a meal you won't soon forget.

Les Deux Magots is a famous café in the Saint-Germain-des-Prés area of Paris. It once had a reputation as the rendezvous of the literary and intellectual élite. It's a wonderful corner to people watch. There is a legend that says if you sit there long enough, you will see someone you know. Perhaps it originated from those who sat and imbibed a bit too much. Nevertheless, it's a "must do" whenever one visits Paris.

It was important for me to go to the places where authors and artists spent time thinking, talking. I thought that perhaps I would get inspired, and I did, only because I thought of them and the things I remember them having said. Here, Sartre and de Beauvoir conversed, and even Camus and Hemingway spent some time. I liked sipping the good coffee (express) sitting on the banquettes against the wall, under the mirrors. The place is very nice, indeed, but has become very popular and so some of their old haunt has faded.

In the battle between Les Deux Magots and Cafe Flore, I'm probably more of a Cafe Flore fan, but both of these Saint-Germain establishments are great places to enjoy a light bite, coffee, or a late night drink.

14/20; Food 8/10, Ambience 3/5, Service 3/5. Famous brasserie/bistrot. A (rare-ish) intersection of fashionable Parisian locals and tourists. Definitely a bit chi-chi, and certainly exhibiting some of the ubiquitous indifference to service, BUT the food is really really good traditional Parisian bistrot fare (in my experience better than the even more famous Brasserie Lipp), with a wide range of everything from well-prepared salad through to a full-on steak tartare. And it, especially on a warm day, it is a buzzing, pleasant spot to while away a few hours and absorbing Paris life.

you must stop here for some café or une orange presée...and perhaps l'ambiance will inspire you to become an artist like those who hung out at this place for enlightenment. Deux Magot was a popular hangout for les avant-gardes such as Guillaume Apollinaire, Albert Camus, Picasso and other artists.
