Party Earth Coffee Parisien Review

The Scene

Coffee Parisien in Paris’ 16eme is an American-style diner with great burgers & local crowds. Discover Paris’ version of a (non)greasy spoon with Party Earth.

Hardly a spot for typical Parisian fare, Coffee Parisien is a U.S. president-themed diner that attracts big clans of burger lovers.

Those expecting an average greasy spoon won’t find any old ladies running around in coffee-stained aprons and hairnets – this is still Paris, after all – but the hearty fare is definitely reminiscent of the sort of staples that have satiated college hangovers for generations.

Over-studied students bring in their tired, their poor, their huddled stomachs yearning for toasted buns, clamoring around the small tables that line the walls as they pick from classics like stacked pancakes, nachos drenched in cheese, and the standard hamburgers and fries.

Portraits of Barack Obama and JFK look on, mixed in with vintage Coke signs and an avant-garde painting of Kennedy and Jackie O. behind the bar, while table settings feature all the presidents, who smile up at patrons as they peruse the English-language menu.

Even with the Americana décor, the cozy joint is rarely inundated with expats, and the diners who line up on the sidewalk during the always-busy lunch and dinner hours tend to be a mix of hip locals, young families, and trendy couples with the temerity to eat their double-cheese with a fork.

Eggs Benedict, pastrami bagels, and even spareribs round out the menu at Coffee Parisien, as do a nice selection of beer and cocktails, although most people cap things off with a milkshake.

Eaten with a dainty spoon, of course.

Tip from Emma:

Like at any true diner, you can order breakfast any time of day – perfect for your breakfast-for-dinner hankering.

  • Crowd

    Area college kids, hip locals, hungry couples, burger lovers of every stripe, savvy tourists, and young families with the kids, mostly 20s to 30s.

  • Entertainment / Music

    Staff’s iPod playlists can vary from Nirvana and Pink Floyd to even a little ironically played Britney Spears, all at conversation-friendly levels.

  • Food / Miscellaneous

    Menu of slightly Frenchified American classics, including hamburgers, fries, club sandwiches, pancakes, spareribs, chicken dishes, some seafood options, and milkshakes.

    Venue has two other equally popular locations, one in the 6th arrondissement and one in the Neuilly-sur-Seine suburb.

  • Prices

    Breakfast €8–€14.50, appetizers €7–€14.50, entrées €10–€20.50, desserts €6–€9. Beer €5.50, wine €5.50–€6/glass or €19–€28+/bottle, cocktails €6–€8.

  • What to Wear / Dress Code

    Casual: t-shirts, sweaters, jeans, low-key skirts, blouses.

  • Hot Nights / When to Go

    During regular lunch and dinner hours to join a big pack of hungry locals lined up out the door, especially on weekends for the pre-party dinner crowd.

  • Close By

    Le 29 (29 Rue Vineuse) used to be a pole-dancing club, and though the pole remains, it’s now a cool, retro-styled spot for custom cocktails.

Good American Dining

Coffee Parisien is an often overlooked diamond near Place Victor Hugo. Surrounded by traditional French cuisine this restaurant caters to the large American populace who inhabit le 16eme, as a result the menu is littered with hometown American favorites. If you are in the mood for a burger or cold American beer this is the place for you. The wait staff is very helpful and for the most part speak very good English. One of my favorite parts of the place is the decor, it features images of past presidents and some interesting relics from the 1960's such as posters for Woodstock and other festivals. Arguably the restaurants greatest selling point is the inclusion of one of my favorites, pancakes. The diverse menu which includes both foreign and domestic treats makes this eatery a must visit.
