Great food with gluten free options, a little pricey

We went here on Sunday for brunch. The coffee was really great and the food was delicious, but pricey for breakfast food. The eggs Benedict with salmon was very good and the gluten-free bagels were amazing! The waitress said they also offered gluten free hamburger buns and gluten free beer. The... read more

My mother and I were staying near by on our visit to Paris and we stumbled upon Loulou and were drawn in by their gluten free offerings. We have Celiac Disease and cannot eat gluten--we were not let down by their gluten free food! We each ordered burgers with gluten free buns and it's safe to say those were the... More

Staying in a hotel nearby I thought I would search for restaurants nearby that were not more than ££/$$ and I found this one topped the list. While eating there it was clear why it had done, the staff were really helpful and the food was excellent. Burgers and chips were of great quality and the variety of the menu... More

The place certainly lived up to its name! Our evening meal of homemade burgers were lovely and filling, being around the same price (ish) as the many cafes that are in this part of Paris. The service was excellent.

We visited this restaurant for dinner on our last night we could'nt think of a reason why we hadn't done it before. The staff is super friendly and smily, we ate our meal in a very cozy environment. The food was delicious, we took a fish and chips and a burger. Both excellent. The prices were average, not cheap, not... More

An unpretencious location in Saint Germain with quality burgers, bagels, and eggs. Ideal for a late summer brunch, enjoying the home-made limonade or green ice tea, and the food. Everything is natural, even the tomatoes sauce for the burger, the real french fries cut manually, etc... I got some Eggs Benedict with spinach, all very well prepared with quality ingredients....

This was one of the few restaurants that we went to that actually were really clear and informative about gluten free products. The service was great, and the food was something quite out of the ordinary. My boyfriend loved the gluten free bacon bagel. I think we'll defiantly re-visit this resaurant 😊

My wife and I while on our honeymoon had the pleasure of eating at this little tucked away diner, our French friends Yannick and Fabienne found this little café and highly recommended eating there. Not only is it a good place to eat but the atmosphere is pleasant. Not only do tourists eat there but so do the locals. We... More

We, a young German couple, decided to take a dinner at LouLou Friendly Diner after we have read the good reviews at tripadvisor, and we weren't dissappointed. LouLou is located in St. Michel, a quarter with MANY bars and restaurants who all have good prices for a lower budget (~20€ per meal or for a complete menu). As LouLou is... More
