The name originally belonged to a fabric and novelty shop at nearby 23 Rue de Buci. The shop sold silk lingerie and took its name from a popular play of the moment (1800s) entitled Les Deux Magots de la Chine (Two Figurines from China.)  In 1873 the business transferred to its current location in the Place Saint-Germain-des-Prés. In 1884 the business changed to a café and liquoriste, keeping the name.

Auguste Boulay bought the business in 1914, when it was on the brink of bankruptcy, for 400,000 francs (anciens). The present manager, Catherine Mathivat, is his great-great-granddaughter.

Les Deux Magots (French pronunciation: ?[le d? maɡo]) is a famous café in the Saint-Germain-des-Prés area of Paris, France. It once had a reputation as the rendezvous of the literary and intellectual élite of the city. It is now a popular tourist destination. Its historical reputation is derived from the patronage of Surrealist artists, intellectuals such as Simone de Beauvoir and Jean-Paul Sartre, and young writers, such as Ernest Hemingway. Other patrons included Albert Camus, Pablo Picasso, James Joyce, Bertold Brecht and the American writer Charles Sutherland.

The Deux Magots literary prize has been awarded to a French novel every year since 1933.

In addition to the church, the square features:
The Fountain Saint-Sulpice (French: Fontaine Saint-Sulpice) or Fountain of the Four Bishops (Fontaine des Quatre Evêques), built in the center of the square between 1844 and 1848, was designed by the architect Joachim Visconti. The fountain presents the statues of four bishops, one on each of its sides:
Bossuet, North, statue by Jean-Jacques Feuchère
Fénelon, West, statue by Fran?ois Lanno
Fléchier, East, statue by Louis Desprez
Massillon, South, statue by Jacques-Auguste Fauginet
Some people call this monumental fountain the fontaine des quatre points cardinaux (lit. the "Fountain of the Four Cardinal Directions", which is pronounced as the "Fountain of the Four Not Cardinals"). This is a bit of innocent wordplay; none of the four esteemed bishops ever became a cardinal.
Chestnut trees that produce pink flowers, in season.
The Café de la Mairie, a rendezvous for writers and students. The café was featured in the 1990 film, La Discrète ("The Discrete One"), directed by Christian Vincent, starring Fabrice Luchini and Judith Henry.
The mairie (city hall) of the 6th arrondissement.
