After the war, de Beauvoir and Sartre moved from Café de Flore to this nearby artists’ haunt, where they continued to write and think and entertain their friends for a good chunk of the rest of their lives. The literary pedigree here is at least as impressive as that of its neighbor: Poets Verlaine and Rimbaud camped out here, as did François Mauriac, André Gide, Paul Eluard, Albert Camus, and Ernest Hemingway. The outdoor terrace is particularly pleasant early in the morning before the crowds wake up.
