Gare du Nord lunch help

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!

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

          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.

              Try again. Chez Michel, restaurant, 10, rue de Belzunce

          2. 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.
