A taste of America at Coffee Parisien novembre 8, 2008

Bagel, cream cheese and lox I like this place very much.

I know I know, it is crowded, busy, and the staff is not polite (like always in Paris: you work in a trendy restaurant? You can do anything, see here). When you walk in, be prepared to wait for about 30 minutes (sometimes). The trick is to go tell the waitress how many people for your table, your name, and make sure she does not forget you. This way you can have a table in 5 minutes. Then either you are lucky and your table’s waiter/tress is nice, or he/she is a pretty haughty Parisian bitch, looking down on you. Either way don’t pay too much attention, you’ll be too busy looking at the tasty menu, the table set with every American President (hello Obama!), and observing the loud crowd. It is supposed to be an American diner, and yet everyone is French.

Still. The food is good. I have not been disappointed so far. And it’s fast! Eggs Florentine, Bagel cream cheese and lox (my favorites so far) were prepared in like 5 minutes. I wondered if it was not straight from the fridge… Every dish is fresh and has plenty of food, it is worth your money. I recommend the eggs (Benedict, Florentine, scrambled, what have you) and the desserts.
