In love with the pecan pie

the place looks so cute with diner-like interior, I love how the staff also speaks english and very friendly. The pepper lid opened when i was shaking it, making a giant pile of black pepper on top of my omelette, and they right away offer to serve another one for me. The omelette is also pretty... read more

I ate here twice while in Paris. The staff is very friendly and they have great food! A little bit of home while I eat.

At 10 in the morning my wife and our two children were directed to the back of the shabby, near empty cafe despite a horseshoe banquet being empty in the front. When I asked if we could sit there I was told it was for five people, not four. I asked how often they had five people together! Apparently it... More

I've been living in France for a little over a month now and it was awesome to have real American breakfast food. Clearly the French think so too, since my friends and I had to wait in line for about half an hour to have our Sunday brunch. For 16.95 I got eggs over easy cooked to perfection, sausage, home...

A reasonably authentic American style brunch spot. The highlights for me were asking for some milk for my coffee and getting it without a scowl or a warning it would cost me more money, as happens in most Parisian establishments. We had a leisurely brunch over eggs and pancakes with a "mug of joe". It's a good place for a... More

After being in Europe for going on 2 weeks, on our Paris leg of our trip, we discovered this little gem! The kids were so happy that they were finally going to eat food they were familiar with! It was great! The french toast was good and so were the pancakes. But as a southern girl, my only disappointment was... More

Good changeup from croissants and other patisserie. Fine choice of different breakfast and brunch items. All the usuals available - ham, eggs, pancakes &c. Would definitely return.

It's a diner! A very authentic-looking diner. A bit shabby, a bit too busy and very retro. There's something for everyone there: from eggs to burritos, and pancakes and burgers and all of that in enormous quantities and for more than a reasonable price! I went with the classic: blueberry pancakes with bacon and coffee, and my friends had the... More

I was so happy to be chowing down on this big American breakfast complete with bacon and blueberry pancakes! The server did great and was American.

Staying in Quartier Latin

Neighborhood Profile
Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life, architectural splendor and ongoing merriment. The small streets are filled with classical buildings, student bars and lively eateries while the squares are dominated by historic monuments. The area is defined by the 800-year-old Sorbonne University, where Latin once prevailed, and is famous for the Pantheon which celebrates the great men and women of France. During the day students rush from classes to the library and intellectuals people watch from the terraced cafés. As night time falls the surrounding establishments fill up and the merriment really begins. The liveliest parts are around Rue Mouffetard, lined with crêperies and international street food eateries, and Place de la Contrescarpe characterised by terraced brasseries, this neighborhood provides real nourishment for the mind, belly, and soul.
