For a typical French bar and café, the sort of place you see in movies and are sorely disappointed never to find, stop by this neighborhood joint near the Abbesses metro stop. This is the place to go if you want to see the stereotypical Gauloise-smoking, cap-wearing Frenchman, a breed that seems to have otherwise disappeared. Join the local men over une demie (a half-pint) or a café. You're certain to make some acquaintances with the scowling but otherwise friendly Frenchmen who frequent this café, especially if you still remember a few words of high school French. -Emily Monaco

Shhh! Don't let this get around, but the Abbesses district at the foot of Montmartre is one of the coolest and youngest scenes in Paris, but without the disadvantages, namely an invasion by hipsters from all over, of being well known. And in Les Abbesses, the reference is the Sancerre, a fun little bar for drinking and conversing over a rock soundtrack. Brunch on Sundays. Simple and good dishes for lunch and dinner.
Café des Deux Moulins is the same cafe that featured in the much loved 2001 film Amélie. You can tell by the 1950s decor inside. The small typical French café has definitely gotten attention after the success of the movie and is visited by both native and foreign customers. A large poster of Amélie saying "Amélie thanks you" hangs on one of the walls. Other than the cinematic distinction, the café is like any other French café with a low lit and warm atmosphere inside, where just coffee and casual conversations flow.
