LES DEUX MAGOTS: HISTORIC CAFES AND BRASSERIES OF PARIS

Bookmark and Share

Consider the bustling location. Situated on one side of a lovely square, across from the oldest surviving abbey church in Paris, Les Deux Magots offers the perfect vantage point for contemplating the past, present and future.

The sidewalk tables, the glassed-in terrace seating, facing either the Boulevard Saint Germain or the church itself, make this café a chart-topper of a destination on the Left Bank.

The church of St.-Germain-des-Pres, stands upon the ruins of a basilica which King Childebert built in 542, to house holy relics.

On September 3, 1792, 318 priests were hacked to death here, by an angry mob during the French Revolution. Rene Descartes, the great 17th century philosopher is buried inside.

But don’t get your knickers all in a twist, for the tumultuous past disappears in a flash with the arrival of your sandwich jambon. This simple crusty baguette, coated lightly with fragrant butter and filled with slivers of delicate French ham, will interrupt your reveries and bring you down to Earth, which, at the moment, feels more like Heaven.

The Deux Magots Literary Prize has been awarded to a French novel yearly, since 1933. You might be sitting in the seat once occupied by Andre Gide, Jean-Paul Satre, Fernand Leger, or Simone de Beauvoir. This would be a good place to write in your journal.
