On the Boulevard Saint-Germain, the Café de Flore saw the birth of many artistic movements - Suréalisme, Dadaïsme- with the likes of Apollinaire, Aragon, André Breton, Tristan Tzara. It was also the center of the existentialist movement ( Jean-Paul Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir )
In the Sixties, it's the meeting place for the Nouvelle Vague (Christian Vadim, Jane Fonda, Jane Seberg, Roman Polanski, Marcel Carné. Brigitte Bardot, Alain Delon, Losey et Belmondo )
The Art Deco interior, red seating, mahogany and mirrors have witnessed the creation of many great projects.
Café de Flore is only five minutes walk away from Musée d'Orsay, a nice place to have a break after seeing the Impressionists
