That’s the Paris experience we’re all looking for. So book your flights, pack your Trtl Pillow and get ready to live your best bohemian life with these 4 iconic Parisian cafés.

Les Deux Magots

The bohemian left bank of Paris boasts several famous cafés including Les Deux Magots and Café de Flore (we’ll get on to her later). Les Deux Magots was the central meeting spot for artists and intellectuals from the ages, including Ernest Hemingway and James Baldwin. Now you can soak up the inspiration while drinking some excellent coffee at this creative crossroads.

Café de Flore

The equally iconic old-school rival to Les Deux Magots is the Café de Flore. Another haunt for these legendary artists of Paris that has recently seen more and more tourists flock to their tables. An excellent café for people-watching and deemed by some Parisian regulars (so you know it must be legit) as serving the best hot chocolate in Paris, the Café de Flore cannot be missed.
