The Parisian terrace: one of the city’s most iconic, romantic images. The Belle Epoque era, the paintings of Edouard Manet, Edgar Degas and Renoir, who first evoked into image Paris’s liberated counter culture and the beauty of its people. It is so iconic and romantic, in fact, that in 2018 the city requested UNESCO to recognize the terraces in Paris on its world heritage list! The idea is that these cafés and terraces bring people together and nurture a creative, artistic community, and they also support the idea of joie de vivre that is so intrinsically, delishly French. The Café de Flore is one of the oldest coffeehouses in Paris, celebrated for its famous clientele, which in the past included high-profile writers and philosophers. It is located at the corner of Boulevard Saint-Germain and Rue Saint-Benoît, in Saint-Germain-des-Prés in the 6th arrondissement.
