The interior of the burger cafe is made in the original style: low wooden tables and cabinets, pillows on the benches, cute wallpapers and shabby walls. At the same time, it’s always full of people – from office clerks to hipsters. Everyone is sitting, chatting, and having fun.
Coziness is facilitated by an informal atmosphere and pleasant music. But the pizzeria features less street style and the emphasis in it is made rather on a beautiful interior. Both establishments of the chain work seven days a week, from 12pm till 10pm. This is a great rarity for Paris, so after long walks around the city come there to warm up and rejuvenate.
The only drawback, which is not uncommon for small French cafes, is that you can only pay in cash there.
So, and now a few words about food. In the burger café you will be offered two sets of options to choose from: a burger, salad or potato, a drink with a dessert (15 Euros) or without it (13 Euros). In the menu there’s an option for an additional 2 euros to replace the bun with a gluten-free one.
The burger can be made in different sizes: standard (8.5 Euros) and smaller. In each of them, you will get a red onion, pickled cucumber, tomato, salad and vegan cheese. Next, you’ll have 5 choices of chops with various additives to choose from, including the burger of the day, the taste of which depends on the season and the chef’s mood. Desserts are somewhat banal, but cool: cookies with chocolate (2 Euros), carrot cake (3 Euros) and dessert of the day (3 Euros). Speaking of drinks, tea, coffee, juices, bionade, beer and wine are available.
In the pizzeria you’re offered a very wide selection of pizza (5 Euros), including the gluten free pizza (6 Euros). Everything is very tasty there, although, it’s rather the American version with the lush pizza dough than the Italian on the thin one.
