we like food: breakfast

October 26, 2011

// photo's by the fashion gal //

happy hump-day! today is the first {of many} "We Like Food" posts! yippy! here's how it work's... we (the fireman & i) LOVE eating at new cool restaurants or old cozy favorites, so if it's worth talking about, we'll let you know what was DELISH and what was worth ordering again! we may be self-proclaimed food critics, ya know. but in actuality we have no professional experience in food, other then the fireman eating a LOT of it daily and my one summer waitressing at Hennessy's in Hermosa Beach. but i can tell you this, WE LIKE FOOD... and we like it a lot. so grab your cup of Joe and tune in for some fabulous food feedback... because today we're talking breakfast! YUM YUM(!!!)

Le Pain Quotidien, Manhattan Beach CA
 {my double shot latte with REAL (whole) milk... mama wasn't counting the calories today!}
 {the thing i love most about this quaint little Belgium cafe, is the simple European touches. first off, i love the outside seating area. the tables & chairs are simple but inviting. i also enjoy the wide assortment of jams, nutella (my fave!), and sweet pecan spreads for the fresh baked breads they serve, on request}
{i ordered the Baguette French Toast that was soaked in agave (rather then maple syrup), garnished with strawberries, banana, and topped with a pretty white powdered sugar}
{the fireman ordered the Farmers Scramble that included ham, tomatoes, scallions and came with mixed greens and a fresh baked baguette. luckily it came with the baguette because the portion was a little small for the big guy}
{he's a food stealer... busted!!! it's ok, i grew up with two older brothers, so i'm kinda use to sharing my food}
{this wasn't your typical French toast... the crispy baguette bread, savory agave, and mint leaf gave this breakfast treat it's own little delicious twist! Yummmyum!}
 [Our UN-official {official} Review...]
Le Pain is a beautiful Belgium cafe with a lot of outside seating. the pastries looked amazing and coffee wasn't bad! i loved the oversized coffee cups (of course) and really enjoyed the uber-fabulous baguette french toast. the fireman liked the scramble he ordered, but was enjoying MY breakfast as much as i was (of course, again). over-all this is a great place for lunch with your girlfriends or breakfast with your man. 

what did you have for breakfast???

I sometimes dunk my toast into my coffee too. The Belgian cafe looks lovely - I love the food it sells (and the nutella!)
