French Meadow Bakery.

Restaurant Review.

On my lovely day off from work I managed to have some "fun" time! We started the day off by going to brunch with Carly. We were going to originally head over to The Lyndale Taphouse but they were actually closed when we tried. I hadn't tried the uptown French Meadow so this was the perfect opportunity. The food was amazing and the atmosphere was welcoming. All of the food served is organic and the prices certainly do not reflect it. Usually organic foods are more expensive but this is definitely not the case here. 
"French Meadow has led, articulated, and demonstrated 
everything right and good about food in America in the last several decades: championing organics before there really was such a thing; promoting sustainable agriculture; making and serving slow foods; and generally providing a tasty little oasis of thoughtful and healthy living since the dawn of time. Or 1985, more specifically." ***Photo and Paragraph Credit***

 The restaurant style is one that you order and pay up front and they bring the food to your table when it's ready. Our table card was hello kitty :)

 Menus cover the walls displaying all of there delicious food choices. 

 Carly and I decided to share two dishes we thought sounded good. Above is the cornmeal waffle (vegan and gluten free): organic corn waffle, bananas, toasted walnuts, and toffee syrup. 

We also ordered the breakfast quesadilla: organic sprouted tortilla, organic scrambled eggs, cheddar, organic black beans, organic spinach, guacamole, chipotle sour cream, house-made salsa. I really loved the tortilla and all of the sauces were a perfect touch. 

Damian ordered the cajun hash browns (gluten free): spicy golden hash browns, onions, roasted peppers, tomato, garlic, cheddar with your choice of all-natural chorizo.

The food was amazing and I am already planning my next trip back. The dinner menu looked equally delicious.
