Café Le Procope is the oldest restaurant of Paris, founded in 1686. Among its famous clientele over the centuries were Rousseau, Voltaire, Balzac, Victor Hugo, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson and many more. During the turbulent years of the French Revolution, the café provided the backdrop for meetings between such notables as Robespierre, Danton, Marat and the Cordeliers. Legend has it that Napoleon Bonaparte, then a young officer, once left his hat as collateral when he could not settle his bar tab.
