Yes my friends that's the truth!
The beloved American meal has become quite the popular in the City of Lights. But the place to go for all things egg related and brunch meals each and every day of the week is tiny Left bank joint -- Eggs & Co.
Open daily, this tiny restaurant is full of character. With over twenty eight options for ingredients to be added to your eggs and a selection of Benedicts, over twelve different types of omelettes and much much more. Grab a seat upstairs and the congenial Australian waiter will dart up the narrow staircase to take your order.
What to have after a ten mile run along the Seine and through Central Paris?
How about the Colette omelette but with egg whites of course and a side mesclun salad. Double espresso to go with that's for sure - caffeine is a necessity on a three day whirlwind trip to Paris.
So what was in the Colette omelette?
Beaufort, the king of French Alpine style cheeses, rarely seen in omelettes at brunch stateside but boy was it the perfect melted nutty rustic component to my eggs. Along with the Beaufort, there were oven roasted tomatoes and basil. Simple yet perfect - flavorful and fresh, this was exactly what I wanted!
Go for eggs for breakfast, lunch or an early dinner and be transported to the small vintage inspired space that could easily be found in the East End of London or on a street in Williamsburg. But no, it was in the 6eme on the Left Bank.
What a treat!
My Parisian food adventures were off to a good start!
