Amazing place for brunch, I will definitely come back! Friendly staff, good service. You will not leave this place still hungry! There was a short wait at the door but anyways, that's a good sign! Apparently it's a pretty well known breakfast spot in Paris.

Decent diner food but nothing amazing. Lacking in atmosphere (although the music was good) and overpriced (4 Euros for a mug half full of hot water and a tea bag). Overpriced and overrated but not terrible. For the same price, I preferred Schwartz's down the street for better quality brunch food.

Nice set up, friendly American waiters but the quality of the food is really poor. Don't go there for burgers. Even the fries are not homemade. They are plenty of tasty burger restaurant for the same price in Paris. Here you get Mc Donald's same quality burger in a fun independent friendly restaurant. BIA used to be better.

Excellent spot located in the beautiful Le Marais section of Paris with friendly staff and delicious food! The endless cup of joe was perfect to get the day started and the waitress was very sweet and accommodating. Coming here was a nice change from the more sweet pastry option at most cafes. Definitely recommend.

After strings of disappointments, I finally found this place where real good pancakes with the right texture are offered. Two years into my life in Paris, I chanced passing by this eatery. I told myself if this place did not deliver I should not try pancakes in Paris ever again. I had the Today's special which happened to be Red... More

A great place to enjoy an american breakfast (served all day with lunch/dinner menu) in a great decor. I love the milkshakes and the breakfast burrito !

I have been two times, the first for breakfast (delicious hot cakes!) the second time for burger. While I can't say it was th best burger in Paris that I have had, it was pretty good and certainly filled the craving. Meals are fast and staff are friendly.

It's a nice small restaurant to visit for a taste of American diner food. The service was good and food was served fast.

Breakfast American style ... 2 pancakes 2 eggs 2 bacon and maple syrup all washed down by endless coffee... great start to a day walking the streets of Paris. It's small and busy so you might need to wait... but it's worth it. If you like an American diner breakfast then this place is a must.

Thank Andbain

Neighbourhood Profile
Le Marais
The Marais is a winding maze of multi-faceted streets that beg to be explored. It bursts with small boutiques, historic buildings, cozy traditional restaurants, and hidden parks. Around each corner, you'll come across little gems of architecture spanning the centuries, from understated medieval towers to classical libraries and 17th century splendour. This neighbourhood unites a rich mix of people of all ages, but it's best known for the gay scene mostly in the south and the Jewish community around Rue des Rosiers.
