On weekend mornings so many people flock to Le Petit Dejeuner for their fabulous brunches that there’s generally a line-up. Indeed, t the very reasonably priced Eggs Benedict, apple pancakes, Belgian waffles, and other delightful dishes are worth a bit of a wait. Fare-trade coffee, freshly squeezed juice, a variety of teas and a spectacular chai latte complement the menu nicely.
Simple Fare Delivered with Flare
Breakfasts and lunches are busy all week long, with students, business people, and retirees all vying for tables. They will all enjoy crepes and sandwiches, all-day breakfasts, and Belgian specialties. On weekday evenings there’s a prix fixe dinner available in addition to the regular a la carte menu. Both of these options, moreover, contain intriguing selections for vegans, vegetarians, and carnivores alike. Also, the restaurant is fully licensed.
Le Petit Dejeuner consists of a long, thin dining area with a small bar to one side and a kitchen in the back, where white-coated kitchen staff are visible through a large opening. High ceilings add grandeur to the small space. Wooden floors, burnt orange walls, and exposed brick give the room warmth. The comfy and alluring emerald banquettes, however, are the most exciting design element. Brown, white, and orange 1960s stained glass cylindrical light-shades and framed art deco posters are elegant and add a pretty touch. Mismatched cups and plates, upbeat music, and friendly, casual service add to the charm of this café.
