Pretty Good American Food

Good milkshakes, pretty descent food. Super nice staff and everyone speaks English. It doesn't get too crowded so that is a plus. Good atmosphere.

We have been living outside if the us for 12 years so it is always nice to find a place with good old American food!! This diner is very small and bustling! The staff was wonderful and our family of four enjoyed every bite of our pancake breakfast! Much better than any IHOP or other chain breakfast place in the... More

We went here to get a break from the local French food and get a taste of home. This place was affordable and very much like the food from back home. Nice little break for our trip.

We ate here to take a little break and grab an American breakfast. While the food in France is great this was a great little deviation from our eats during our stay in Paris. Food quality was very good and price was reasonable. Seating can be a challenge depending on the time of day you go so be prepared to... More

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 food was great and portions were very large. I... 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.

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.
