We had breakfast here twice as we were staying in a hotel just a few meters down the road. Small busy diner, nice food polite staff that spoke excellent English (I suspect the waitress was English) Good choice of food on the menu, fast service and the food came quickly too. If you fancy a change from the usual continental... More

It can be sad for an American traveling abroad on a holiday, especially on Thanksgiving. In spite of the famous food delights of Paris, nothing beats a home-cooked Thanksgiving dinner of turkey and all the fixings. Fear not, Breakfast in America has come to the rescue! I was fortunate to get a table there on Thanksgiving and the food was... More

The place was bustling in the middle of the day on a Friday. We were fortunate that we only waited a few minutes outside before being seated at the counter. Service was fast & efficient and food was great. My companion raved about the milkshake. A fun taste-of-home and reasonably priced. We were too full to try the "American Apple... More

Tonight's dinner was quite disappointing since we weren't served any. When we arrived at our favorite diner on a Wednesday night around 8pm, it was half empty. However, we were told they hadn't place for 2 (except for the bar or a shared table), because they were keeping tables free for larger groups. When we insisted, the waiter explained that... More

Having grown tired of the protein-free "petit dejeuner" offered at my little hotel near Les Jardins des Plantes, I searched for an alternative, and found reviews for "Breakfast in America". After 3 1/2 weeks in France, I liked the idea of a little slice of home, and decided to stroll the several blocks to give it a try. It's not... More

I've been to Breakfast in America 3 times and have never gotten inside. Yesterday wasn't very different but I finally decided to wait. I didn't have to get on a plane to have a decent breakfast! I loved my server, I think his name was Jonah. He was working his butt off to make sure he get our order out... More

We were looking for a typical American Diner and we were lucky to find this one. The interior design was exactly what we were looking for. Great location, great staff and the most delicious burgers. Worth it.

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?

We were so happy to stumble upon this place - so cute - and after days of European-style breakfasts it was a treat to have some U.S.-American treats! 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

Staying in Quartier Latin

Neighbourhood Profile
Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life, architectural splendour 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 neighbourhood provides real nourishment for the mind, belly, and soul.
