Hemingway also visited frequently at “Le Dome Café” in Montparnasse, another well-known meeting place for painters, sculptors, writers, poets and intellectuals.
“Dome Café” is mentioned several times in Hemingway’s book, “A Moveable Feast.” One of the chapters is even named "With Pascin at the Dome", describing an evening Hemingway spent with the painter Pascin and two models, who were also sister. “Le Dome Café” is also mentioned in Henry Miller’s “Tropic of Cancer” as well as Jean Paul Sartre’s “The Age of Reason”.
Today “Le Dome Café” is a praised fish restaurant with a Michelin star and prices that the young Hemingway could not have afforded.
Recommended good cafe is Lavazza which can be found on the parallel street - Via Baglioni - where you can find absurdly cheap, great coffee. The waitresses write your order on a palm computer, and the seating outside in the shadows of the colorful buildings is absolutely amazing. If you learned a little Italian, you'll enjoy ordering Cappuccino and Crostata (baked pie with jam), and you'll have great joy from how tasty they are. Their Chocolate drink is also amazing and we're still looking to order something similar where we live.
Behind the obelisk you can find a shaded street. The first gelato you'll see is the last we visited in Italy. We found there something we didn't find anywhere else - Marron Glace - a chestnut candied in sugar syrup and glazed. You can't refer to it as ice cream since it's not cold, and the texture is more similar to sweet chestnut mush. However, you don't want to miss this thing.
The hour was 13:00 and the rumble of our stomachs pointed us to the reserve restaurant: Licka Kuca. It’s a great restaurant and if you aren’t part of an organized trip you need to go down to the lower part. It serves mainly barbecued meats and it’s not expensive.
