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.

We are from NY, but live in Paris now. I have been extremely homesick recently, and our friend told us about this place. We stepped in and was greeted by a nice gal from California. I wanted to hug her. I have been craving pancakes and diner food for forever. During the meal, we were surrounded by Americana memorabilia and... More

We had a good breakfast here. Not very spacious and shiny clean, but low priced so good value for money. Bottomless tea and coffee and friendly service from the American girl.

If you are looking for a change from the wonderful French cuisine and need to address any cravings for American diner food, this is the place. We had both breakfast and dinner at BIA during our trip. Everything we ordered from the breakfast menu (pancakes, french toast, eggs, home fries) was great. We returned for dinner one evening and the... More

The food was great, and the waitresses were nice. We had burgers and tortilla wraps, which both tasted great.

If you're in Europe craving American food or a big breakfast, this is the place to go. We both ordered their cookie pancakes and they were excellent. Breakfast is served all day but we went again and tried their dinner time food- a burger and the pacific coast sandwich and neither disappointed. The waitstaff was all very friendly and the... More

As an Australian couple travelling in France,we are used to a good breakfast and found that difficult to get in Paris. This little place was funky in decor,bright and cheery.Toaster on the table to cook your own toast, lovely cooked breakfast and hot coffee. Staff friendly, quick service and nice food.

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.
