We went here for breakfast one morning as it was a few metres from our hotel. The food was good and large portions. I had a salsa mexican omelette which was really nice. It is everything you would expect from a classic American Diner. Very...More

We enjoyed breakfast here three mornings during our week long stay in Paris. It had an American feel both in regard to the menu and several of the employees. We enjoyed visiting with the manager and other employees too. The food was always delicious.

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
