When you can't face eating any more flaky pastry or in desperate need of something more substantial whilst in Paris, try this place. After a ridiculously early Eurostar journey, we were in need of a hearty breakfast. Let's face it, eggs don't really feature on a french breakfast menu unless it's a place that serves brunch (which is often after 10am and at weekends) or if you walk into a hotel that offers a cooked english/american breakfast buffet. After an online search we found 'Breakfast in America' or simply 'BIA'. There are two locations, one on each side of the river. We went to the Rue Malher branch, which is near the Marais district. Unsurprisingly the clientele is a diverse mix. We were greeted in french by two young waitresses who we later discovered are American and Canadian. The breakfast menu offers plenty of choice and most come with accompaniments of either home fries (or tomatoes) and toast. Bottomless coffee is a welcome sight. We had the ham steak and eggs, and the 2x2x2 (2 eggs, 2 bacon, 2 pancakes). Each table had a toaster so it was great to have hot, crisp toast. Food is simple, delicious and comforting. Staff were super friendly throughout. Admittedly it's a guilty pleasure and it feels weird to be eating this food in Paris but when there's plenty of walking to be done, I need a good start!!
