We were there twice, both times on Sunday morning both times there was a queue of people waiting for a table. The waiting was totally worth it though. Friendly staff, a wide range omelettes, bottomless oj or coffee, brownies for dessert. The location is great for a Sunday walk in a medieval quartier of Paris and the prices completely reasonable....

My wife and I are frequent visitors to Paris. Normally we fly into CDG and transfer to Nice or Chamonix by air or TGV. Typically we return to Paris and stay there several days before returning to the USA. We always stay in a hotel near the Cardinal Lemoine Metro station. In this area there are scores of dining possibilities.... More

The BIA is a great restaurant. I suggest it for Americans that are tired of french food, or for french people that want to get to know American food :) There is a huge breakfast menu where you can get literally anything! And you can have breakfast there all day if you want. But there is also burgers, and quesadillas,... More

Great quick meal after checking into the Minerve Hotel. From then on Id recommend branching out and discovering truly Parisian fare.

After about 3 days of French breakfasts, I visited Breakfast In America (BIA) and had a great meal of scrambled eggs, sausage, fresh-squeezed OJ, and toast (made from the shape of bread you buy in American grocery stores). All of the waiters and waitresses spoke fluent English and wore black tee shirts with "STAFF" in white letters, they were happy... More

Sometimes there a moments in life when all you need is pancakes. You know that feeling. When the desire comes over you so strong that is you don't have pancakes that very second then you will literally rip off your own leg and eat it. We all have those moments. Well last week that was me. Seriously I was dreaming... More

This place was a fantastic find....we just happened across it after wandering around Le Marais trying to avoid dodgy tourist menus, when I happened to say to my girlfriend 'God I would just love a decent burger' and around the next corner I found the holy grail!!! I had an excellent "super BIA" which had bacon, cheese, caramelised onions and... More

My husband and I were in Paris in the middle of July. We felt it a cop out for doing so, but we decided to go to BIA for breakfast one morning (we felt bad getting "american" food our first few days in France). We both loved what we got. My husband ordered an omlet and I got pancakes. We... More

This restaurant was just up the street from our hotel. My 12 year- old daughter insisted that we eat here every day. We had breakfast, lunch and a strawberry milkshake from here and I believe we ate here 4 or 5 times. The staff all spoke perfect English and the food was very good.
