Our americanos were good, a few notches up from the burnt shit at Starbucks. More importantly, though, these people have some FOOD.
|The Caroline: A thick slice of brioche with a load of gruyere, bechamel and ham, with a poached egg atop it - $7.95 - There was so much wonderfully melty gruyere, and the bread was big and soft and sweet. Get this one.|
|The Lily: A biscuit with brie, pancetta and a poached egg - $5.95 - Could've done with a bit more brie, and the biscuit wasn't as flaky as I'd hoped, but the poaching was perfect.|
|Going halvsies on the breakfasts with my girlfriend. Giving you a look at the insides.|
|The pastry case went on and on, and everything looked so good.|
|We got a bunch of tea cookies and macaroons to go.|
|I was sad to leave these behind. Why didn't I get any?|
The one thing about this place is that, it being one of the few places worth getting breakfast for miles around, it's crowded. You might have to stand around for a while like a hawk, swiping half a table you'll share with another couple or family.
