Berry Frappe and Homemade Granola
I know, another post about brunch. But hey, who doesn’t love a nice lazy brunch? This time I had brunch at Bitton Gourmet Grocer & Cafe in Alexandria with Miss LV and Miss Toronto. I wasn’t planning on attending a ‘SIFF’ event, but it turns out that they were doing a brunch menu as part of the festivities. Yay for me! For $25 you get a three course brunch meal. First up is homemade granola with yoghurt, berries & orange jelly, which comes in a small champagne flute – it is the perfect starter, not overly soggy, with just a touch of sweetness. The berry frappe also arrives as part of the brunch special. This was a little bit too watery for us, so we stuck to the other drinks that we ordered.
The second course was eggs benedict with smoked salmon. Perfectly poached eggs with smoked salmon, spinach and hollondaise sauce sitting on top of an english muffin. You can never go wrong with this combination, in my book! When I walked into the back area of the restaurant, I noticed a little play area for kids! So, Bitton is perfect for families with young ones and also great for celebrations as they have a large seating area out the back.
The third and final course was crepes (or crepe!). One lone beautiful crepe served with plum jam, this was super delicious. The only problem was that I wanted more!
I really enjoyed our brunch at Bitton Gourmet and I’d definitely love to go back to try their lunch and dinner menus, as this little taste has really whet my appetite for more! The service was good and the area is relatively quiet on a weekend morning, so it’s perfect to laze about. Definitely a great place to bring kids; I spotted some amazing looking pancakes too! More delicious French-ness? Oui oui!Bitton Gourmet Grocer & Cafe
