I spend a lot of time in Paris and every time I'm there, I eat at Take Me Back Cafe. It doesn't look like much, but the food is wonderful. The have a good selection of food other than catfish, and it's all good.

This is the kind of place you go where everyone knows everyone. The food is home cooked and appears to be made to order. The prices are very reasonable, the portions ample, and the staff makes you feel right at home. A welcome respite from...More
