Good Cheap Places to Eat in Paris 2e

My daughter is studying in Barcelona this year, and I'm meeting her for a week in Paris at the end of March. We have an apartment in the 2e, near Reaumur-Sebastopol. I don't know this quartier at all. We aren't fancy-food people - when I was younger and worked in Paris, I lived with a family that cooked and ate together every night, and the food was out of this world delicious, but just well-made home cooking from the best ingredients. We like to cook but don't want to spend our short seven days doing a lot of cooking. We plan to eat lunch out, and pick things up for dinner most days. But some days we'll take a lunch with us and will want to eat dinner out. We are on a VERY tight budget - about 20 euros for our one meal out per day for each of us. Does anyone have suggestions in our neighborhood or near the most famous places? I worked at the Pantheon and love R. Mouffetard, but I know it is very touristy. Also love the Marais and look forward to discovering Canal St. Martin. But we'll need places all around the city that are affordable and tasty, and we like just about any cuisine.
