I finally went over to Pain Perdu for the much celebrated french toast, and it was everything I heard it was. The bread is soaked for a long time, so the consistency of the dish is quite different, very moist and delicious. We also had a slice of a quiche and it was nice and fluffy, with a solid but not hard pastry. The coffee is very good, and we took home delightful coffee eclairs and some other puff things - yummy. stuff is very friendly.
the place is comfy but very small, so going for a later brunch (we were there at 1:30) may be your best bet for a table. i hear there is a line up during the usual brunch time.
