Huge delicious portions!

Only come here if you are really hungry and can do justice to the huge portions. We has breakfast burritos which came with delicious fried potatoes, toast and unlimited coffee. One burrito would have easily fed both of us. The salsa in the burrito was really nicely spicy cutting through the rich... read more

We only tried this because it happened to be open one morning as we strolled our lovely Latin Quarter neighborhood. The previous night it was packed and people were lined out the door. I had a ham and cheese omelet and it was just loaded with too much greasy cheese (inedible). My husband had an elaborate egg dish with potatoes... More

As long as you don't mind waiting, this is a great way to have some American food in France. We went with the family and it was one of the few kid friendly places to eat in Paris, we all ordered something different (diner breakfast, burgers, pancakes) and no one was disappointed. Having toasters at the table was fun for... More

We were tired of ordering overpriced food that we didn't eat. We found this little gem online and ended up having breakfast there twice. The restaurant is small and crowded, but this is very typical of Paris. Service was good.

After spending four days wandering around in Paris and ordering food without knowing what exactly would be coming to our table we were overjoyed to come across this place the morning we were leaving. We both were really craving an American style breakfast instead of the small pastry and espresso that we had been having every other morning. And that's... More

I finally caved and tried BIA after months of living in France. It definitely didn't compare to the breakfast places I love in America. The coffee was burnt and my burger was just average. My friends had breakfast food and didn't think it was that great either. I will be sticking to French food from now on!

What a pleasant surprise for us to find this lovely diner tonight. Upon stepping in the front door, we felt the warmth and comfort of the American spirit. The waitress was incredibly friendly and made us feel right at home. It was such a breath of fresh air to be greeted with a smile, treated civil and not looked down... More

Food is ok. Toaster is provided at the table so we can make toast by ourselves. Bread is normal - nothing special. It's like bread you get from supermarket. Service is slow and uninterested. Toilet is very small - had to squeeze in to close the door.

This is an all American place - from the decor to the food. The inside reminds you of Johnny Rockets and the food reminds you of ihop or Denny's. The pancakes were light & fluffy, the bacon was crisp & the eggs were scrambled well. You can toast your own bread at the table. The prices are reasonable.

We've had a try at a Parisian breakfast and ended up with burned eggs. So. we decided to try Breakfast in America and we were not disappointed. If you are staying for several days in Paris and you are missing the American dinner breakfast, than this is surely the best place to go in Paris. Maybe a bit more fruit... More

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.
