Brasserie Balzar
Le Cafe du Marche
Louvre Cafe-inside

    Constant is always good.
    The others… if they are your sentimental choice, then it is best not to ask others what they think.
    Jazz Club Lionel Hampton. Very high quality jazz but not very jazzy or charming atmosphere.
    Are English Pub and Versaille Palace actual restaurant names? Or are they personal notes for yourself?
    Louvre and Orsay cafés are like restrooms, for convenience.
    If you must eat inside a musem, try to have lunch at the Jacquemart-André. How often does one lunch under a Tiepolo?

      The sentimental one is just one I always wound up at when would get into town from the train from Germany where I was stationed, it is not a must..lol
      The English Pub is off the Champs Elysees, nice pub you would forget you are in Paris for a bit.
      Versailles, I figure it is like the Louvre or Orsay with a place to eat. Like you said they are for convenience sake, I have eaten in the one at the Louvre was not to bad.

      These places are not set in stone, I have a total of like 25 I had to recheck to see what would work with my budget but still good food.

      Even tho we do frequent Cafe Constant and Balzar, I think you are aiming low. If it is a budget issue, I think you can do better with lunch menus etc. Sorry.

        No need for sorry. That is why I asked. There are just soooooo many places to eat it makes your head spin at times.

        <Jazz Club Lionel Hampton> If there is someone appearing there you want to hear, that would be good reason to go. Otherwise, there are other, much nicer clubs for Jazz and food. Although not sure I would go to one for dinner.

          Totally agree. The Swan is a hot club for jazz these days and is much nicer, in a nicer location.

            will look up The Swan.
            Thanks for the heads up about the Hampton
