Breakfast out

Carolynn loves eating breakfast at restaurants–it is one of her favorite things.  This morning we went to Côte, a little bistro just over the bridge.  We’ve been there for dinner several times and it is always just okay, but they know how to do breakfast well.  Their croissants in particular are amazing–just the right blend of flaky, buttery and fluffy.  I wish I knew if there was a way to eat them without leaving so many crumbs on the plate.  And the table.  And my lap.  Carolynn and I both had the Eggs Benedict–how awesome.  The Hollandaise was light on its feet–not the normal, ponderous, gooey stuff that seems so common.  It was a bit underseasoned, but a touch of salt and it was fine.  The café crème was awesome–I don’t drink a lot of coffee, but this is rich and thick and soooo much better than what they serve at Starbucks 🙂  I ordered an orange juice halfway through–fresh-squeezed, with the right balance of sweetness and tartness.  Too bad they don’t do dinners like they do breakfast!
