“the only great milkshake this side of the ocean”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2014

+ malt milkshake, the real deal
+ really nice diner (and they have a signed "Friends" poster)
+ nice choice of burgers, and more (including breakfast at all hours)
+ friendly staff

- sometimes the buns happen to be too dry (as in not fresh)
- it can get really crowded

conclusion: I would recommend it more for the breakfast or milkshake than for the burgers (which are ok anyway), and do try to go avoid the crowds

“Sunday Brunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014

OK, it's a nice place. And you can find some classic 'american' goodies there like pancakes and milkshakes. And the portion sizes are american style too.
But, honestly, you are in Paris, go to more Parisian-like restaurant...

“A refreshing restaurant in a sea of croissant and baguette”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

It's not the easiest to find a restaurant in Paris the serves American breakfast at 8am or all day, but this place did. The food was good and quite the typical American (nothing outstanding).

“Worse than any American diner”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2014 via mobile

This place is supposed to look like a 1970's American diner, and in that it succeeds. The food, however, is terrible! The "mug o' Joe" is like American coffee you might find at a greasy truck stop. It was so bad, we send it back and ordered French coffee instead. The fried potatoes were greasy, the omelette boring. Cute decor, bad food.
