Paris's Oldest Eatery

Opened in 1686, Le Procope is the oldest continuously operating restaurant in Paris. The chefs here cook up traditional French cuisine, including calf’s head, sea bass, coq au vin, onion soup, and cassis sorbet. Well-known for their coffee, Le Procope boasts that Voltaire used to order 40 cups a day of his favorite brew here. Famous actress Claude Sarraute, who goes to Procope almost every Sunday, further adds to the list of significant guests. The historicity of the place (more so than the food) make Le Procope a worthwhile choice for a classically atmospheric meal.
