LA Times
Using a mix of history, gossip, personal observation and guidebook information, Christine Graf has done travelers a great favor with this charming guide...One afternoon in a cafe gives you more of a sense of the city than visiting a dozen museums.

Graf, who has been visiting Paris annually for 25 years, has compiled a compact, attractively priced guide to Parisian cafs. Each chapter is organized around a theme, ranging from the American cafs favored by Hemingway and the Lost Generation to the Left Bank cafs frequented by Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir, the artists' cafs of Montmartre and Montparnasse, and Inspector Maigret's favorite haunts. The guide is packed with anecdotes about French and American literati and artists. Even if the reader is not planning a trip to Paris, these anecdotes alone make the book worth reading. Listings for cafs include information about location, telephone number, hours, prices, nearest Mtro station, and maps. Additionally, there is a brief description about the ambience and decor of each caf, a chapter in which Parisians discuss their favorite cafs, and a section on where to obtain the cheapest coffee in Paris. It is a pity there are no photographs. This is nice coverage of a subject that usually gets cursory treatment in most guidebooks. Recommended for general travel collections.Ravi Shenoy, Hinsdale P.L., Ill.
