If You Need An American Breakfast...

We went to BIA for breakfast because my husband was getting sick of "light European style" breakfasts (yogurt, bread, etc). This place is great if you are in the need for a heavy, meaty, American-style breakfast. It looks like pretty much every diner in America and was filled with Americans. The... read more

Well cooked food with a varied US menu. Service a bit slow when it's full. I had bacon, eggs and pancakes, all really good.

We decided to go here for breakfast after reading all the good reviews. It was a great choice! The food was very nice. The portions were so big that we didn't need to have lunch. The freshly squeezed juice tasted perfect. We got our food pretty fast. The staff was friendly. Would recommend to anyone.

I went for breakfast here with some Americans who absolutely love this place but i myself was not impressed. The staff are extremely friendly and did whatever they could to accommodate our big group and let us all sit together. The inside of this restaurant looks exactly like an American diner; authentic for some but personally for me it lacked... More

We ate here a few times and the only reason I'm not giving them 5 stars is because I wasn't in love with their non-breakfast foods (the burger was alright, but skip the chicken wrap). Their breakfast was amazing, tho! I was shocked at how spot on their blueberry pancakes and french toast were. Also, their Oreo milkshake was delicious... More

Decent Burger, friendly staff, Breakfast in America is worth a visit but there are better burgers elsewhere in Paris.

Popped in to BIA for a late breakfast and we were pleasantly surprised! We ordered burgers and a milkshake each, both of which were fantastic; fresh, tasty and plentiful. Adding to the excellent quality of food was the friendly service and quirky decor. We will definitely be returning here.

We ate at this restaurant twice while in Paris. I'm gluten free so it was great to be able to find somewhere to eat that offered an alternative to all the delicious croissants my family was enjoying. Eggs and bacon and sausages and pancakes - all great.

Living overseas is not always easy, and the hunger hits worst when you go years without waking up to the smell of bacon and eggs. No worries--that's what Breakfast in America is for. It is always on our must list when we go to Paris. Perfect for expats who need a little comfort food. The milkshakes are wonderful, burgers are... More

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.
