I don’t know why, but I always forget to take photos of my times at Le Pichet. This last Saturday was no different. I had breakfast with a friend and it was only as we were about to leave that I suddenly remembered the camera. So this is all there was left to show you.
I will tell you though that we both opted for the OEufs plats, jambon et fromage which means they take lovely, salty, thinly sliced ham, line a boat shaped casserole, add fresh eggs and tangy Gruyère cheese and bake it until the eggs are cooked but still runny, the cheese is melted and the ham is a bit crispy. It’s all that a breakfast should be!
Add some slices of chewy, crusty baguette and a pot of tea and you have a meal that will send you out into your day smiling and feeling that all is right with the world. At least that’s what it does for me.
One small note: This is not a place to go if you are in a hurry. Although, all the servers are very pleasant I’ve never had anything but spotty service here. One moment they are solicitously checking on you, the next you can’t catch anyone’s eye. And that is even though the place is tiny and the servers are running back and forth by your table every minute or two. I’ve never figured it out and have given up trying. It’s just the way it is and the food is good enough that I can let the rest be.
