Don’t be fooled by the name, Café París is not a fancy place. As a matter fact, the only things it has in common with the French capital is its name and the dozens of cheesy posters of the Eiffel Tower hanging on the walls. The place is more like an old diner with green vinyl booths and formica tables. It is not one of those new places trying to be retro, this place is old like a large part of their customers.
Walking through the door you’re gonna find a table with newspapers and magazines so you can read while having your coffee! I mean, is that old school or what?! And that’s exactly the charm of Café París, a sweet cozy and simple place that keeps hanging in this corner in a neighbourhood where the old spots are being replaced with hip bars and posh restaurants.
Café París is a great place to have breakfast or dinner, the portions are well served and in the end you won’t feel cheated nor robbed. The menu is large and includes a little bit of everything: soups, salads, sandwiches, Mexican dishes, beef, chicken, desserts, etc.
My favourite dish for breakfast is “chilaquiles verdes con pollo” (fried tortilla chips bathed with a green spicy sauce and topped with shredded chicken, cream, fresh cheese and chopped onion, and a portion of mashed black beans on the side. F**king delicious!
