Brunch with the girls... en Francais

Sundays were made for brunch....with the girls...with Mimosas.  It was a beautiful sunny day at Le Garage, a quaint little French bistro in the Sausalito marina.  It earns the name by being located in a converted garage.  And did I mention that all the wait staff speak French?  It gave yours truly a chance to show off, I mean, speak my second language.




Mimosas!







Decisions, decisions...






This omelette was a surprising success.  It was cooked with English peas, pequillo peppers and goat cheese.  I wouldn't have thought of combining those ingredients, but it worked really well.  The peas were fresh and popped in my mouth while the peppers added a contrasting tangy flavor.  Goat cheese, aka chevre, is an acquired taste for most and I am no exception but I can say that I love it now.








The french toast, or pain perdu, is never disappointing.  It is topped with a house made berry compote and is absolutely delicious!





Shoestring french fries with a garlic aioli.


What meal is complete without dessert?  We ordered a Bailey's & espresso creme brulee and the Fondant au Chocolate, which is a molten chocolate cake stuffed with hazelnut milk chocolate ganache & served with whipped cream and a Grand Marnier creme anglaise.  
 Perfect ending to a fabulous meal.
