Address: 150 S. Magnolia Avenue, Orlando, 32801
A little cafe in the heart of downtown Orlando. While small, there was no wait and plenty of seating available Sunday morning. It serves both breakfast and lunch all day, closing at 2 pm. Parking is limited to meters on the street or using garages but if you go on a Sunday the meters are free. You can order at the register and take a number to your table or, if you need time to peruse the menu, you can take a seat and a server will come for your order. There is a large display of all of their delicious-looking pastries right up front. I wish I had saved some room but with their generous portions I was too full to have any more.
Savory Crepes – La Parisienne – $8
A homemade savory crepe filled with ham, turkey, cheese, bechamel, and mushrooms, served with a side salad. It was a large crepe which could easily be split with another in order to save room for one of their sweet treats afterward. They did not skimp on the meat with thick layers of both inside. The cheese was perfectly melted and stringy when you pulled it apart. It was a simple side salad consisting of mixed greens and dressing, which was a perfect accompaniment to the filling entree.
I will have to return to try more from their menu and, of course, their pastry display.
