Et Voilà! French Bistro

CC started her brunch with a champagne cocktail mixed with guava puree. I usually like cocktails during brunch but I’m such a lightweight and I was driving, so I didn’t order one. I’ll have to come back again with Mr. K so I can indulge in a cocktail.

Crab Omelette

I chose a crab omelette. It was served with a side of mixed greens salad. The omelette was fluffy and tender and filled with crab meat cooked in a tomato sauce. I was surprised and happy with the generous crab filling which was also quite flavorful.

Tartine du Jour

CC ordered the tartine of the day, which was a prosciutto and mushroom one, topped with cheese and caramelized onions, and served on toasted fig bread. She let me have a bite and I thought the open-faced sandwich was nicely balanced.

For dessert, we shared paris-brest, wheel shaped choux pastry filled with a praline cream. Conveniently, there are two in one order. They were also served with a side of chocolate sauce.

While not quite as pretty as other versions I’ve seen, I enjoyed the lightness and crispy edges of the choux pastry. I found the praline cream a little bit too sweet for my liking.

Overall, we had a pretty good first meal here and I do want to return and try some more items. The service was nice and the atmosphere is open and inviting. I thought the prices were also pretty reasonable and one of my favorite coffee shops, Hawthorne Coffee, is right next door too.
