Eat/Shop: Cafe de Flore, St. Germain, Paris

Cafe de Flore in Paris on San Germain is a great way to enjoy the cafe experience with really wonderful eggs, salads and onion soup. For those of you who read The Beautiful Fall, Flore served as the backdrop for the gatherings of Karl Lagerfeld and Yves Saint Laurent throughout their careers. Ironically, Lagerfeld is still a regular at this fashionable stop. I was thrilled to learn that next to the restaurant, you can find any of the "Cafe de Flore" white and green plates, tip trays or glasses for sale that they actually use in the restaurant. Each time I visit the restaurant, I wish I could take away a few pieces. So thrilled that I finally can. Definitely make it a stop on your next visit, and the best part is the eggs are for dinner.
