Gare du Nord lunch help

yiting Jun 12, 2009 09:13 PM

After a short stay in Paris, my husband and I are catching a 3pm train to Amsterdam from Gare du Nord. We would love to have lunch at a cafe close to the train station. Any suggestions for a place that's yummy but not too formal? Your input would be most appreciated!

    You could try out Taverne des Flandres, about a block away. Should be decent; certainly not pricey. I have only had drinks there, seemed OK.

        Thanks for the suggestion. I checked on google and map and it seems to be a 40 min walk. Possibly anything closer?

          There is always Terminus Nord, a Flo brasserie.

            I can assure you that Chez Michel is not a 40 min. walk from Gare du Nord; even an escargot could beat that. I guess it is maybe 200 yards and is just around the corner. However', as stated by Dodo, Terminus Nord is directly across the street , is pretty and has nice shell fish platters and typical brasserie dishes.

              Google Maps is looking for one of the over 50 businesses named Chez Michel in Paris.
