There is little that whisks us away to our dream of Paris more readily than the classic French petit déjeuner in the morning sunshine. Taking a moment to savor some coffee, some juice, a small pastry and a baguette with some confiture, watching the world and its denizens hustle about; these are what the French refer to as les petits plaisirs, the small pleasures.
So, in response to popular demand from both locals and visitors alike, Café Campagne will offer breakfast during the week starting June 1st. Serving Monday through Friday from 8am until lunch begins at 11am, expect to see favorites like the Oeufs en meurette, the Omelette Choisy, our chicken and pork sausage and even house-made patisseries!
On my personal list of favorite kinds of breakfasts, French comes in third, behind Chinese dim sum and American greasy spoon (I have a wicked weakness for corned beef hash and pancakes), but ahead of Vietnamese. Much as I do love a nice bowl of pho and a glass of iced Vietnamese coffee to start the day, if given the choice I'll still take a mug of cafe au lait, a perfect croissant and maybe some Merguez sausage, an egg, maybe a bite of pastry...
Needless to say, I'm looking forward to this new development. I'm just hoping that Gordon doesn't wipe himself out doing three-a-day schedules and overseeing two different restaurants. And in any event, I'll be bringing back a report from Cafe Campagne sometime next month--hopefully talking about both the Campagne burger and the new breakfast.
