5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Andrew S. Rogers VINE VOICE on April 4, 2008
Format: Paperback
A few years ago I read another book about Paris cafés and bistros in which the author claimed that after reading his book (and solely on that basis), you should be able to pick out a Paris café to make your own. I don't think he quite pulled off that feat, but I have adopted that idea as one handy standard by which to measure the three or four other books about Paris cafés I've read since then. Of all of them, "Café Life Paris" comes, by a good stretch, closest to making me feel ready to call dibs on one or two cafés I'm ready to settle into.

Some of these Paris café/brasserie/bistro books focus on the distinctive food served in these establishments, while others are more interested in description through words or photography. "Café Life Paris" is of the second group, and Christine and Dennis Graf give us full and evocative depictions of several dozen cafés. They divide them into groups ("Great and glamorous places," "Neighborhood cafés," etc.) and explain not only the décor and type of people a given café serves, but also the general feel or élan of the café and the surrounding neighborhood. Given that each café is described in just a few paragraphs and maybe one or two photos by Juliana Spear, it's a remarkably concise and evocative job the three have done.

I've no idea when I'll get back to Paris, though I'm vaguely confident I will someday. When I do, I think I'll want to check out Café de Flore, Le Sélect, or Le Rouquet. Based on what I've read here, I think I'll feel pretty comfortable there.

Format: Paperback
Expertly researched and co-authored by Christine and Dennis Graf, Cafe Life Paris: A Guidebook To The Cafes And Bars Of The City Of Light is an insightful and engaging survey of the many wonderful cafes and bars to be found in and around in the beautiful city of Paris. Superbly illustrated throughout, Cafe Life Paris showcases each unique and tasteful stop, offering readers a descriptive introduction to what these cafes and bars have to offer, including a variety of entertainments ranging from music, to philosophical discussions, to cabaret performances. There are cafes which draw students, others which are undiscovered treasures known only to the locals, some famed and a "must" on ever tourist itinerary, and more. Cafe Life Paris is very strongly recommended as compendium of beautiful, romantic, entertaining, and colorful cafes and bars which is perfect for planning any visit from a weekend excursion to a month long holiday in this Parisian "City of Lights".
