While strolling around the Latin Quarter last week, I spotted Little Cantine and decided to stop in to try one of their hamburgers.
After studying the menu, I settled on a “Dude” burger, consisting of ground beef, cheddar, bacon, pickles, and barbeque sauce. Served on a sesame-seed bun, the burger stood tall on the plate — a tempting tower of flavor. I bit into it and savored one of the best burgers that I have tasted on this side of the Atlantic. Washed down with a bottle of Brooklyn Lager (an artisanal beer brewed in the U.S.A.), the meal was so filling that I didn’t have room to try any of the desserts.
The burger came to 11€, a reasonable price for hamburgers in Paris. The beer cost 6€, a standard price for an artisanal beer. The accompanying green salad came to 3€, bringing the total bill up to 20€.
I was served by Cécile, who told me that she is the manager of the restaurant. She, and another employee who came on duty a little later, speek impeccable English. Americans in Paris who pine for a tasty hamburger will enjoy dining at the Little Cantine.
