American Food in Paris

So, sometimes during my stay in Paris I just felt like it was time for some food that didn't require me to think too hard or translate the menu too much. I wanted something familiar, easy, and laid back.

Enter Happy Days Diner.

Just behind the Place Saint Michel on rue Francisque Gay, it's a 50's-style diner offering American classics like burgers, fries, onion rings, and sundaes. And a bottle of Heinz 57 on each and every table.

The food is similar to what you might find at Iceberg drive-in in Utah. No one's throwing awards around, but it's tasty enough if you've got kids who are looking for something "normal" to eat in Paris, but you just can't bring yourself to go to McDonald's.

I also really love the decor.

Yep. That was a Coke with lemon.
