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.

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...
