4. Les Deux Compères – Emily in Paris

Netflix mega-hit Emily in Paris features a restaurant taken on by Emily’s marketing firm as a client. In the show, the eatery is named Les Deux Compères, however its real-life equivalent is named Terra Nera.

5. The Lighthouse Café – La La Land

Located at Hermosa Beach in California, the Lighthouse Café features prominently in the Oscar-winning La La Land, as Ryan Gosling’s character takes Emma Stone’s character to see some live jazz music. The cafe is still there and pumping out live jazz every week.
