I love to eat and I love to try new foods. I enjoy eating in and out equally. I decorate cakes as a (paid) hobby. There is a 90% chance that I will order chicken in a restaurant. Forced tipping for substandard service (aka svc charge) is a BIG pet peeve.

I was here for lunch. This café has sections on different levels, including one to buy ground coffee. Our group sat inside at a long table, and we enjoyed table service. The menu is surprisingly extensive, and includes beverages, sandwiches, salads, and desserts.

Sadly if you have a loyalty card from another Brulerie, it is not valid here. The waitress was very pleasant and prompt, but the cashier was slow and surly. It made for a sour end to what had been a decent visit. I am undecided about returning.

Dishes I tried:

This was a cappuccino with almond syrup, a touch of chocolate, and lots of ground almonds on top. I have enjoyed this at other branches, but this one was not made the same way. Instead of whipped cream, there was foam. Not much chocolate. And it was lukewarm.

chicken sriracha sandwich

This was the daily special. The sandwich was made with sliced chicken breast, red peppers, cream cheese, cucumber, and mayonnaise laced with sriracha sauce — a lot of it. I had a choice of white or brown bread, and I chose brown. It was held together with toothpicks. The special came with soup and salad, I chose broccoli soup and a green salad with a house dressing, heavy on the balsamic vinegar. I liked this sandwich, but it tended to slide apart while I ate it. Next time, I would look for a different sauce and a different salad dressing.

Soup was included with the lunch special. This was served piping hot, but it was bland and lumpy. One of my tablemates loved it, and I wish I had passed my bowl to her, because she was debating ordering a second bowl!

Group Service Charges Evil dirty rotten service charges. I don't like them and I try to avoid places that slap them on to the bill. If the policy is upfront on the menu, it's more tolerable. But sometimes the charges sneak on, especially without merit.
