The Great Canadian Pub

For someone who loves Paris so much, it really is a shame that I don't enjoy their food as much as I should.  You may be ashamed to hear this, but on several occasions I have eaten at The Great Canadian Pub.  Located on 25 Quai Grands Augustins, it is only a short walk from Notre-Dame. 

The nice thing about The Great Canadian Pub is that is does kind of feel like home.  You are welcomed into the restaurant with door handles made out of hockey sticks.  You can listen to Canadian music as you eat your food, or watch the big screen tvs.  The food served really is food you would see in Canada [except maybe the blue cheeseburger and duck's legs -- I can't say I've ever seen those in your standard Canadian restaurant]....and it is good.

They offer specials at lunch, which are super cheap by Parisian standards. For 11 euros I was able to get a bacon cheeseburger with fries and salad, as well as a pop. The pop alone is normally 4 euros, so this was a great buy! The salad wasn't was just basically lettuce with a vinegrette sauce but the burger was good (bun was great) and the fries alright as well. Nothing spectacular, but for the money, you can't go wrong! The nachoes there were really good too.

Service was always pleasant and in English.  We ate inside, but there was also outdoor seating available.  Evenings are super busy so go early if you want a good seat.

So, for all of you who aren't fans of the French food, or who are just looking for a little piece of home...try The Great Canadian Pub!
