bio brunch

Because Cheri is on a health kick I took him to brunch at le Pain Quotidien this afternoon to celebrate his birthday. On the menu was:

fresh squeezed orange juice
cappuccino for me, chocolate
chaud for him
granola and yogurt
brioche, croissant or pain chocolate
a bread basket with accompanying raspberry and cherry jam or chocolate to spread
œuf a la coque
and a salad with cheese and meat or salmon

There was so much food it wouldn’t fit onto our tiny window table so the waiter
wrangled a chair for the overflow. Wedging savory between courses of sweet is my favorite way to brunch so I started with the pain chocolate, best ever!, then ate the salad and cheese and finished with yogurt and fruity jams on bread. Everything was organic and delicious.

The atmosphere is rustic and noisy. Large tables are shared between parties and the bakery sells breads and spreads to take. Arriving just before noon we beat the rush. Brunch runs 23 euros a head. I think I’ve found my new favourite resto!
