Looking for a reasonably priced cafe ( brasserie) near Orsay to get lunch while waiting for check in at our rented apartment ( after a long international flight and with our rolling carry ons.

Right at the southwest corner of the museum - - Les Deux Musees, maybe. It's where I drink beer while the people I'm with go in damn art museums. I think it says brasserie on the awning, but I've never tried the grub.

Right at the entrance there is a lovely little cafe. I cannot remember the name, but I remember having a beautiful smoked salmon salad that was out of this world.

On Rue de Bellechasse, which runs between the two museums, there is a small snack shop with about five tables that advertises crepes, pizza,etc. but you can also get a good omlette with fries and green salad there, cheap. There is a brasserie/restaurant at the corner of Bellechasse and Rue de la Universite.
