Also known as: our new neighborhood French restaurant!
I haven’t experienced too many cravings during my pregnancy thus far (and hello, we’re finally in the third trimester!), but this past weekend I really wanted a breakfast sandwich. Like, had to have one. And not just any sandwich. I wanted a croissant (a good one) with egg and cheese.
Naturally, John caved and suggested we go out for breakfast. Yes, please!
There’s a small French restaurant in Greenwich, CT that we had heard good things about. French breakfast = croissants and homemade pastries, right?
When we walked in the door, this is what we saw:
Yes, this’ll do.
As we approached the counter, I noticed a large tray filled with four or five various croissants cut into small pieces. I immediately reached for a sample of an almond croissant.
The verdict? Outrageously good.
That one bite alone was enough to make me say screw the breakfast sandwich and order something sweet. (There was a pistachio croissant with my name all over it.)
Every bit as good as the almond. (P.S. That’s a decaf coffee.)
To counteract the sweetness of the pastry (and the large caloric intake), I ordered oatmeal with dried fruit and almonds.
An unexpected order for me, yes, but very tasty.
John, however, being the good man that he is, got the breakfast sandwich. (Thanks for taking one for the team!)
Flaky croissant, creamy eggs, gruyere, and thinly sliced prosciutto.
I should’ve ordered this. It was pretty much the most delicious breakfast sandwich ever, and I’m already wishing for a return visit to order my own. (Related, why are buttery pastries so good?!)
The only drawback to this adorable restaurant is price. It’s a little steep for an everyday breakfast place (two beverages, two entrées, and a pastry set us back $40, which is about $20 more than our old diner in Queens), but the food is certainly worth it. I can’t wait to return for dinner and see what they have to offer!
