Breakfast at Tiffany's

I couldn’t resist the title of this post after eating at Tiffany’s, on Décarie, this past Sunday. The restaurant is like a cross between Bâton Rouge and a nice diner. Tiffany’s is not strictly a breakfast place, it is also a grill, but they are known for brunch. It’s got an American-style menu with eggs, pancakes, French toast and waffles, as well as more health-conscious options. For my part, I couldn’t help but order the Holly Golightly (two eggs, pancakes, potatoes, fruit and toast) with a side of bacon (not included in the meal itself). The pancakes were wonderful. The potatoes were intriguing: halfway between roasted and mashed, and with an unidentifiable spice. After the first bite, I wanted more, but by the end, it just became weird. I’m told those were not the potatoes that are usually served, though, but they are described on the menu only as house potatoes, so I guess anything goes depending on what the chef has on hand. The bacon was cooked perfectly and the eggs were quite good. The fruit was a few slices of melon and orange. I opted not to get the toast, though, because I’m never hungry enough for the whole thing. But the meal itself was very satisfying.

Tiffany’s, while busy, is a nice place for breakfast, and I would like to try more of their dishes. I’m glad I got to try it out.

*On a side note, I just can’t get over how nice it is outside today! It’s April 27th, but it’s 30 °C outside. The air is warm and smells wonderful; the buds in the trees are turning green; some lucky people have tulips and daffodils. I wish I had more time to go enjoy this weather outside. In the meantime, all my windows are open!*
