My FAVORITE breakfast place!

August 28, 2009

I have a confession to make:  I don’t really like breakfast food.  That said, my favorite breakfast place is Amandine.  The thing I love about Amandine is that everything tastes light.  You know how sometimes you eat eggs and cheese and just feel lethargic after?  That doesn’t happen here.

Boyfriend went with the country omelette.  It has bacon, potato, cheddar cheese and onion.  Doesn’t the food look light and the omelette look fluffy?  The omelettes always come with fresh fruit on the side, potatoes and toast.  Looking at this breakfast plate makes me smile and want to eat breakfast for dinner.

I went with the cheese danish.  I am usually not a pastry person.  I only like pastries when they are TO DIE FOR.  This cheese danish definitely falls into that category.  It is light and buttery but not so buttery that your fingers get greasy and you feel guilty after you eat it.  I ordered two… one to eat there and one to eat the next morning!

The cakes here are fabulous as well!  They are gorgeous and not too sweet but just sweet enough.  I’ve tried a number of the cakes and have never been disappointed!  I tried to be inconspicuous and took this picture from where I was sitting.

Choco Pear

My cousin Laureen told me to go to her favorite bakery in my area.  Paris Baguette.  We ate dinner nearby and decided to stop in on the way home if they were still open.  To my surprise, they are open until 11 PM Monday through Saturday and until 10 PM on Sundays!

Most of the breads were sold out at 9 PM but since we were there to pick up dessert, we found what we wanted.  We got one green tea cream cheese bread and one choco pear. (pictured above)  Those are slices of fresh pear on top of the cake!  I love Asian desserts because they are not TOO sweet but still have a lot of flavor.   It was exquisite and beautiful as you can see, and tasted as good as it looks!  I am anxious to go back and try their bread and other cakes.
