Go have breakfast here! Great atmosphere and service. Our waitress was so nice and attentive. You won't regret trying this place out for breakfast. Even though it's larger portion sizes and is American breakfast there is still the Parisian flavor in the food.

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
