Le Petit Dejeuner - disappointing lunch

Royaljelly | Aug 27, 2007 01:31 PM

Finally had a monday off in a long while and most of my favorite lunch/pastry places are closed (even Il Gelatiere was closed), so had to hunt for a substitute place nearby St. Lawrence Market (also closed, argh). Decided to give Le Petit Dejeuner a try, based on a few Chowhound recs.

Started off with their Belgian fries and mayo. The fries were of the nice and thin shoe-string variety, similar to the ones we used to love at the old Steakfrites (now occupied by Lai Toh Heen). Mayo sauce was just that, mayo.

I ordered the Hungry Gal dish, 2 eggs, potato rosti, a green apple cole slaw (consisted of slices of apple, some veggie and thousand island dressing), and choice of organic sausage (mine was overly charred/burnt) or fish cake (not available) or peameal bacon. Really nothing stellar, and the salad dressing and burnt sausage was a real downer.

Wife had the crepe with mussels and spinach, but didn't see a single sliver of spinach in sight and the sauce was strangely curry based. She kept shaking her head in disgust while eating this dish.

They did have some other items on the menu that others had ordered, like Belgian Waffles and other french sandwiches. But based on we tried, I don't think I'll be back in a while. Much rather have gone to Saving Grace...
