It's our last fay in Paris. So far we ate in french places or just bought stuff in a supermarket and ate it while sitting on a bench. We were looking for a place with tasty breakfast and bigger portions than you get on franch breakfast places. We found it! I atea veggie omelett with bagel it was huge and... More

This is Paris after all! So why should you expect New York? It's a diner, so it's not enormous, doesn't have posh tablecloths and isn't silver service. But it does a great breakfast, fills you up for a long day ahead and it's reasonably priced. The team are all friendly and seem to eat there too, which is always a... More

Breakfast was delicious. Prices fair too compared to other places in Paris. Bacon was very good. Eggs delicious. The lines can get long so try to get there at the early part of dining hour.

BIA is small and cramped. You get to know your neighbours well on a x2 table! Food is served on a sub-American portion size but an above average European size (think shoes). The place is good if you're tired of croissants and croque Monsieur. So it does provide a taste of Americana. But it's not anywhere near as good as... More

Not only were we able to eat a good meal, after 2 weeks we weren't crazy about the limited selections & high cost of eating out, but the English-speaking waiters were very helpful when we had a question about the train strike. The one who waited on us even went downstairs to the computer to get us the name of... More

+ malt milkshake, the real deal + really nice diner (and they have a signed "Friends" poster) + nice choice of burgers, and more (including breakfast at all hours) + friendly staff - sometimes the buns happen to be too dry (as in not fresh) - it can get really crowded conclusion: I would recommend it more for the breakfast...

OK, it's a nice place. And you can find some classic 'american' goodies there like pancakes and milkshakes. And the portion sizes are american style too. But, honestly, you are in Paris, go to more Parisian-like restaurant...

It's not the easiest to find a restaurant in Paris the serves American breakfast at 8am or all day, but this place did. The food was good and quite the typical American (nothing outstanding).

This place is supposed to look like a 1970's American diner, and in that it succeeds. The food, however, is terrible! The "mug o' Joe" is like American coffee you might find at a greasy truck stop. It was so bad, we send it back and ordered French coffee instead. The fried potatoes were greasy, the omelette boring. Cute decor,... More
