Longing for a Terrace Table, by Claude Corbin

The view from an inside table at Les Deux Magots. This classic café moment was captured in happier times, before cafés were forced to close due to the Coronavirus pandemic. It makes you ache to sit on the terrace of your favorite café once more. We hope we can soon again.

You can find Claude, here.

Les Deux Magots, 6 Place Saint-Germain des Prés, 6ème.

  1. Today, when I viewed the snap of Les Deux Magots, my heart stopped. My beloved restaurant. So many visits to Paris and it’s one of my first stops. Always welcoming. Always so kind to me. I pray to be there soon and I will have champagne this time to celebrate this wonderful place.


    1. We had the same reaction when we received this photo from the contributor. Paris is so sad without its cafés. We’re getting a window into what it would be like if we lost them, and indeed are justifiably worried about which ones will reopen and which will not. Famous cafés like Deux Magots and Café de Flore stand a better chance than our local hangouts, which were already struggling. We feel like our hearts will not beat again until our cafés reopen.
