Paris Pantheon Area Restaurants and Sights

I will be staying at a hotel across the street from the Pantheon in Paris. Interested in recommendations for cafes, restaurants, markets and shops in the area. Thanks.

We went to a lovely little bistro called Le Perraudin on Rue Saint Jacques at Rue Sofflet. We liked it so much we went there twice and had excellent duck confit and leg of lamb. The restaurant was filled by 8 but if you wanted a later dinner, you could probably get a table about 9:30 or so. Very friendly service.

You are staying in an area within walking distance of a large number of excellent restaurants. If you let us know what sort of place and budget you are looking for, suggestions should flow.
You are within easy walking distance of Mouffetard.

You will be very near one of my favorite places to eat in Paris - Le Cosi a 9, rue Cujas. Even Patricia Wells gives it a good review http://tinyurl.com/32sabk

To clarify we have a family of four not interested in high priced meals. Looking more for a bistro / cafe atmosphere for dinner. Also if their is an interesting breakfast cafe would appreciate your recommendations as well.

Au Bistro de la Sorbonne, 4 rue Toullier, has (mostly but not only) delicious Moroccan food and is modestly priced. It's a tiny place with painted walls. Great food.

Ken - Then I would second hdm's suggestion of Le Perraudin on Rue Saint Jacques at Rue Sofflet. It is not one of my favorites but I think you would find it suiyts your purposes.
A walk to Mouffetard will reveal a number of reasonably priced restaurants, cafes, creperies, "fast food" places. It is a bustling, student area and it sure is fun.
You are in a wonderful area and will have a super time.

Les Fontaines on rue Soufflot doesn't look very exciting, but has excellent food at reasonable prices. It was recommended in Patricia Wells' book many years ago and we've been going there ever since. The endive salad with blue cheese is great, and my sister claims she had the best chicken of her life there. I wouldn't know, as she ate every bite before I could snag one.

There are many restaurants and cafes of all prices ranges in your area. Rue des Ecoles (eg. Balzar), Blvd St Germain (Cafe Napoleon), and if you walk along Fosses St Bernard to the Seine and then walk towards Notre Dame, you will pass many along the way (Rotisserie du Beaujolais is good)

We had a long weekend in the Hotel du Panteon in April.

I THINK it was Les Fonatines we ate in twice- two blocks down Rue Soufflot on the left on the corner. Very good, very homely.

We used the first cafe down Rue Soufflot for breakfast.

And there's a very good wine bar, which does food, behind the Hotel du Pantheon on Rue des Fosses Saint Jacques, as well
