Was nice to have an American breakfast - sorry Paris!

While I love Paris and it will likely always be my favorite destination, I have a difficult time (outside of pastries and simple chicken dishes) with ordering food. After six days, I was dying for some American style eggs/potatoes/breakfast, with NO cheese. The servers are really fun and... read more

BIA is a more relaxed diner close to the universities, which serves burgers and USA diner food. The burgers are good, although not always excellent. Overall a nice place to go have a beer and a good burger, at a reasonable price.

Really felt like some familiar food and drink for breakfast! (Even though we are Australian!). Thoroughly enjoyed a cup of tea and toast with peanut butter!! Such a simple breakfast - but was oh so good! Very friendly and quick service!

Large portions, good service and a teen friendly menu led to us having a good night here. I know it's a bit of a cop out eating at an american diner when in Paris but we really enjoyed our food and service here and would return. Make sure you are hungry as the portion sizes are gargantuan. access is one... More

Whether you are coming from an English-speaking country (so as you are used to this great invention called diner) or not, you will for sure appreciate and enjoy the American approach to eating big without spending much for brunch. The food was very good, the portions big, the coffee bottomless and the staff friendly and all that for 15€ each... More

When you get tired of crossaints and espresso, it's time to head to Breakfast in America where you can get eggs cooked to order, bacon or sausage and hash brown potatoes and free coffee refills in a large mug. If you get home sick for a great American breakfast, this is the place to try. It is small, so there... More

The food, service & atmosphere here is top stuff! It doesn't feel phoney or cheesy like other faux American diners, in Paris. The quality of the food and preparation is fantastic. The friendly waitress was even able to sort me out with an omelette that wasn't on the menu, but which suited my fussy needs. No problem at all. The... More

I got to this restaurant on Sunday morning with friends. On Sunday they offer the Breakfast manu until 4 PM... so no burger for lunch basically... I had an omlette with cheese and mexican sauce (just ok). The portions are big indeed (and fat, guess it's US style) but nothing really impressive... the Yogurt offered is an odrinary supermarket one,... 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.
