Lafayette Cafe and Bakery was the perfect meet up spot for brunch with my girlfriends. It’s a large and bright French style cafe with outdoor seating up front, a small bakery, a zinc bar adorned with a large clock and tons of seating in the main dining room.
We started our brunch with a mimosa toast, a cheese platter and lattes before moving on to our meals. From the cheeses I loved the Pyrenees Brebis but didn’t care too much for the Tarentaise (a bit bitter) and the Tomme De Crayeuse, a soft, mild and brie-like cheese.
The winning dish was definitely the fluffy and citrusy lemon pancakes.
The rest of the dishes we ordered were good old brunch style eggs.
There’s a large outdoor seating area at the front (not pictured), perfect to grab a bite and enjoy the weather. For those looking to grab and go, there’s also a small cafe/bakery with really good pastries right when you walk through the entrance and to the right.
The strawberry eclairs were flying off the shelf but I opted for delicious macaroons instead, which they packed for me in these cute little boxes.
If you visit Lafayette, be sure to pick up some goodies at the bakery on your way out.
