  1. With wine & coffee or just food?

    How about:
    Le Pre Verre
    8 rue Thenard, 5th (Metro: Cluny La Sorbonne)
    Closed Sunday and Monday lunch
    Lunch menu 13 €, dinner 26 €.

    Le Reminet
    3, rue des Grands-Degres, 5th (Metro : St Michel, Maubert-Mutualite)
    T :
    Open 7/7
    Lunch menu 13.50 €, dinner a la carte 40-60 €.

    1. Le Caveau de L'Isles is nearby and has a prix-fixe menu at around 25 euros; it's fine, but you can do better if your willing to travel out of this high rent area.

      1. Or get some crepes in rue Saint Louis-en l'Isle. Or a croque monsieur at the brasserie at the corner of Pont Louis-Philippe.

        1. One of my favorite restaurants is just steps from there, and way under budget (well, I guess it depends how much you drink). La Reserve de Quasimodo is a cave a vins on the Ile de la Cite just across the bridge at Hotel de Ville (the Pont d'Arcole). They serve excellent tartines (foie gras and apple; potato, st nectaire cheese, and magret; etc), salads, cooked dishes, and a meat-and-wine fondu. You can pick your wine from their cave and the mark-up (droit de bouchon) is only 6 euro. It's an incredible deal and a really fun place. Very old building. Bathrooms are cool too.

          1. Thank you everyone - it seems we have a few options now!
