Simple lunch at Mamie Gateaux -- more like this, please?

For lunch in Paris, we usually like a place that is interesting, local, fairly simple, will not take much more than about 90 minutes -- and also will not make us too full. (After all, we also want to be ready for dinner, and that’s usually our main dining event of the day.) One of our favorite lunch places is Mamie Gateaux, 66 rue du Cherche-Midi (Métro: Rennes or Vanneau). This convivial, bright and friendly tea room is perfect for quiches and other savories, tartes and cakes. Our question: What other places (and preferably a few on the right bank) are similar? A bonus question: Why is Mamie Gateaux’s web site mostly in Japanese? (I assume it’s Japanese, I may be wrong: http://www.mamie-gateaux.com/ ).
