When first traveling to Paris I was a scruffy post college type staying in youth hostels and eating at Restaurant Quick. A few years later I was making a bit more money and started eating at some swankier Parisian haunts.
The point? No matter how I’ve traveled in Paris the most consistent meals I’ve had have been at simple corner cafes.
The decor is always simple to grimy, but the environment is usually electric and the food ranges from decent to exquisite.
