Our Insiders' Article

At a Glance

The most striking thing when entering Brasserie Lipp is the amazing historical heritage of the restaurant. The menu and the recipes have not changed since the 1960s and the decor dates back to the 1930s. Even the waiters, in their black and white attire, appear as though they were brought straight from the past... It all started when the people of Eastern France (Alsace) fled the Prussian invasion and arrived in Paris in 1870. Mr. Lipp was one of the “local immigrants” and created his restaurant on October 21st 1880. As the years went by, his restaurant became an institution in the Saint Germain area.


Brasserie Lipp serves French bourgeois home-made cuisine made with the freshest ingredients: sauerkraut, chicken, tartare… And the portions are not for those with an appetite of a bird. This is exactly the kind of food that was served more than a century ago in the traditional eastern province of France, which can sometimes resemble certain German specialties.

Parisianist Fun Fact: Brasserie Lipp is the only restaurant in Paris where Coke is banned. “We don’t want this here”, says the manager.


The most important elements here at Brasserie Lipp are quality, dialogue and fast service. A dozen waiters dressed in their traditional black apron, with a white cloth on their left forearm, welcome each client with a smile. Efficient and reliable, they are also very friendly and will most likely engage in a brief conversation.


Listed as a Historical Monument, Brasserie Lipp could well be described as a museum dedicated to Art Deco, a kind of art born at the dawn of the 20th century. From the ceramic hop flowers on the walls to the beautifully decorated ceilings, nothing here has changed since 1930, at a time when France was a colonial giant. But the beige benches and wooden tables quickly remind us that we are in a comfortable and pleasing traditional brasserie.

Parisianist Fun Fact: Many international personalities have had enjoyed a moment at Brasserie Lipp, from former French President François Mitterrand to actress Scarlett Johansson. But the one that spent the most time here was Ernest Hemingway, always choosing the table under the stairs. He even mentioned Brasserie Lipp in his famous novel A Movable Feast.


In a quickly moving world, it is sometimes nice to enter a place where time has stopped, and better even when that place serves delicious meals at any time of the day. At Brasserie Lipp, many regular customers come to take a break from the stress of everyday life. This was the case also back in the 1930s when many artists and intellectuals of Montmartre such as Picasso abandoned their hilltop area to settle in Saint Germain and naturally started becoming regular customers at Brasserie Lipp.

Parisianist Fun Fact: Saint Germain has always been an area that attracted intellectuals. The Saint Germain Abbey gathered many literate monks in the middle ages. This intellectual image has continued throughout the centuries: Brasserie Lipp has its own literary prize (le Prix Cazes) since 1935 and continues to reward talented authors every year.


Brasserie Lipp is definitely a must see for all those that love literature, art or food. Always open, the restaurant offers the best of traditional French cuisine in a pleasing timeless décor. And with quick and efficient service, it’s a great restaurant for a lunch break while exploring the many riches of the Saint Germain area.
