THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Cafe Parisien Restaurant Review

: To people in the neighborhood, this French fast-food eatery has become something of a tradition. Open for breakfast with coffee, croissants, quiches, and omelets, it carries its fans throughout the day in a casual setting that recalls a French boulevard café. Don’t expect a gourmet menu or flawless wait service, however. What you will find is a congenial staff at the order counter, a pastry case filled with buttery delicacies (try the hazelnut cake with its rich buttercream icing) and a menu that draws upon such French classics as croque monsieur, escargots and French onion soup (here topped with a piece of puff pastry and a wedge of melted cheese). We like the Gourmet Burger, an elongated hamburger served on a section of baguette with a side of mushroom sauce.
