1 Café Paris
31 Burro Alley

These days, with all the well-heeled tourists and downtown office workers nibbling on crêpes and sipping café au lait, it’s hard to imagine the muddy, donkey-lined lane that was here 100 years ago. Today, Burro Alley really does look more like a quaint Parisian side street, and Café Paris seems to fit quite well. Although the city has seen a recent increase in French restaurants, Café Paris remains popular. That’s partly due to the outstanding ambiance outside and partly due to the crusty bread, the appealing pastries and the authentic, unpretentious food. This is a great place to sit and sip a glass of wine on a summer afternoon. When dinner comes, and the city cools, it’s time to order a hearty entrée of boef bourguignon or some overstuffed crêpes. Dinner portions are big enough to share, so order some extra bread and leave room for dessert!
