Seek recommendations on Paris “mom and pop” type restaurants

Husband and I (long married) will be in Paris for five days in June. First trip to France although we’ve traveled extensively outside the US (Southeast Asia, Central/Latin America, Africa, elsewhere in Europe). We like most cuisines, little we will not eat, but want to focus on French food. We love to cook and eat and appreciate good ingredients prepared well, but we don’t like pretentious or trendy food. Atmosphere is not important. Prefer great mom and pop place to 5 star fine dining. We speak very little French but passable Spanish, German and Italian. Will be based in the 6th but will be using metro. Have read the message boards, but overwhelmed. Not looking for the most memorable dining experience of our lives … just good food/wine for good value. Lunch will be big meal of the day. Something light for dinner.
Hope this helps … look forward to your suggestions.
