This place is very popular with students from the nearby university. They even get a discount on the menu. The burger meat is poor quality though: not pure beaf but some kind of salty mix. The coleslaw is obviously made by someone who has never tasted the real thing... Maybe the pancakes are better than the burgers?

I had the breakfast burrito with a side of potatoes - generous portions and very tasty! My daughter had pancakes with white chocolate chips - these were huge pancakes and she could... More

You wouldn't go to Paris just for this restaurant, but when you need a good protein breakfast or a burger at any time of the day or night (rare in Paris!) this is a welcome stop. Friendly, great value. They have two locations in Paris. We went to the one in the Marais near the St. Paul Metro. The French... More

Good food, good service. Very busy, loud, but fun place. Not very Parisienne but definitely worth a visit.

Huge breakfast portions and good food. I had the breakfast burrito and my boyfriend had the chicken nachos. It was like stepping into a diner in the States.

Everything we ordered was excellent ! The staff is speaking english which I love but it leaded to some confusion in the order... We waited a very long time between eggs and pancakes. But it was soooo good !

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.
