Don't be guiri!
L’Avant Comptoir (pancake), on rue d’Odéon just over the Carrefour de l’Odéon, under the square of the same name.
Almost every corner you will find a dresser with baguettes stuffed to bursting. Are the sandwiches to Parisian. Neither good nor bad, just to stave off hunger. If you are lucky and the baguette is made recently that I love. And if you take a couple of hours in the window will not tell you anything but will fill the gut.
They have good press the de l’Avant Comptoir in Carrefour de l’Odéon and the truth is that they are good, but perhaps more fame comes to them for being the younger brother of the neighbor and always crowded Le Comptoir. Beware that many plans do not get the Carrefour de l’Odeon and many go crazy looking for them in the plaza of the same name that is a little higher. If you are there go down the left hand rue Odéon and find them at the time.
If you are on the Boulevard Saint Germain, you can always approach the rue de Seine, No. 54. There have Cosi, a small place with sandwiches made at home. It will be the best in Paris but will like and you can sit in a place not very special but nice to take a break between both Paris ride.
