A touch of home away from home. The menu was just like a little diner as you would find in rural USA.

Visited here for breakfast as my boyfriend loves American pancakes. They were cooked with the topping inside the pancakes which he found to overpowering and would have been better to have the banana etc on top so this was a shame. I had the cc's breakfast mess which was great. The waitress was lovely and it's a cool looking diner.

We love everything about Paris! Well, almost everything. Everything, except the rather lackluster (at best) restaurant service which is common throughout Europe. No big deal, its all part of the experience and the reason we leave the US in search of the "authentic" European experience. But sometimes we just want a taste of home, an oasis in the sea of...

Great find in Paris. When you just want bacon and eggs, maybe some pancakes for breakfast, and a coffee to go with it, this is the place to be. It's packed most days, but there's usually a small table open somewhere! Perfect spot to get some great breakfast to start your day of sightseeing! Will make it a must visit... More

This place is amazing on all accounts. The waitresses were friendly and checked on us several times during the meal (uncommon in Paris); I even overheard one call her customers "hon" ;). As others have said, the portion sizes are huge and a perfect way to start the day walking around the city; there was no need for us to... More

The portion sizes were amazing- we had pancakes with banana and the 2x2x2 (eggs, pancakes and sausages). I didn't even get a third of a way through my pancakes as there was so much- kids portion next time I think! For this and 2 coffees and 2 orange juices it was 30 euros so a little more expensive than the... More

Thanks to TA, we planned another brunch out planned. The quantities are really american way- very lavishly spread out. The Big Mess was real large. We struggled to finish it up, but it was so tasty! Definitely would come back, but when we are reaaallly hungry.

Really lovely American themed restaurant, the staff are so friendly and welcoming. The first morning in Paris we tried this place and went back almost every day after. Word of warning for anyone wanting to try the pancakes don't eat for a few days before, as they are so nice but so filling.

Thank ITmanDan

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.
