Im starting my '3 of the Best' Posts with something easy - 3 of the best Cult Cafes! Ok so im being a wee bit lazy! Everyone knows these! Well atleast they should but just in case they dont here they are! Add to your to do Paris list now.. at the very least try one and do what the Parisians do best - indulge in people watching for a good hour in the St Germain area:

1. Cafe de Flore - rated as one of the ten best places to eat in Paris,  its tables still snuggly wrap around the corner and they serve traditional favourites. Tip: order one of the excellent French wines or simply sit back over a coffee or 2 or 3 and watch the street traffic.

2. LE DEUX MAGOTS - another of the 3 famos cafes. This is a legendary hangout for sophisticated residents who claim it in the off season and a tourist favourite in summer. You can order salads, pastries, ice cream and one of the daily specials.
