A La Cloche d’Or
Despite the slew of hot new places that have opened up around, and almost eclipsed Cloche, this neighborhood staple is still just as great as always, even if it doesn't get the column inches. Open into the wee hours, this is the spot for musicians that have just wrapped up a show or the late night crowd avoiding the street meat. In fact, on Fri & Sat, you can eat your classic French cuisine (hello escargots and foie gras) until 3 am.
Somewhere in the instructions to life, it says "don't eat at a restaurant next to a train station". Normally, that's a solid rule. Here, it needs breaking. If you want old Parisian charm and value for your money, then the brunch at Chez Casimir is where it’s at. For 27€ you can have an appetizer, main dish, and all-you-can-eat access to the savory and sweet buffets. And you get to walk into the wine cellar to choose your drink of choice.
