Very French Toast


We walked to our neighborhood haunt Angelique Cafe this morning for a late 11:30 breakfast. I love sitting outside there. I like to pretend I'm in Paris instead of dingy downtown L.A.

After perusing the menu, I was going to order the eggs benedict, and Mr. Monkey planned to get a ham and cheese crepe.

Our hopes were dashed, however, when our server informed us that the cafe had run out of both hollandaise and crepes. I was really sad, but I quickly turned my frown upside down.

I got my usual marocainne omelet ($8.95), which has merguez sausage and ratatouille in it. Always solid and enjoyable.

Mr. Monkey's side of homemade breakfast sausages ($3.95) were to die for -- beautifully charred and bursting with juiciness.

The real star today, though, was the French toast ($10.95) that Mr. Monkey selected. It's a good thing we always trade midway. French baguettes perfectly egged up and pan fried, swimming in a sinful melange of syrup and strawberry sauce, accompanied by fresh strawberries and bananas, and dusted with confectioner's sugar -- incredible!

We enjoyed every single bite. Of everything.

Good ol' Monsieur Julius witnessed our gluttony.

At least we walked to and from the cafe.

On an unrelated note, I am absolutely loving this new point-and-shoot. So perfect for stuff like this!


  1. oh.mah.gawd. I want that french toast...::drooling::

  2. um, you know i love me some french toast. so should have gotten that when we went way back when instead.

    yay for new mini point and shoot!

  3. the point-and-shoot does quite a nice job indeed!

    mmm, french toast.

  4. that french toast looks incredible.... ahhhh!! this cafe looks like such a lovely spot, too. your blog is like my one-stop-spot for restaurants i need to try!

  5. I hope you changed up your keychain to match your food!

  6. i'm drooling over the sausage...that sounds kinda perverted, no?

  7. Isn't the Canon just great? Love the pictures. [drool]

  8. Yeah, I think that slightly beats my trip to IHOP on Saturday.

    PS-Great pictures!

  9. Now I'm craving french toast ...

  10. Mmmm, I love me some French toast. Julius looks like he'd like some, too.

  11. I wish I liked French Toast! It sounds lovely regardless. And looks good too along with your other grub. :)

  12. for some reason, i just inadvertently lol'd when you showed the second empty plate. i was only expecting one.

    such a deep comment for a monday. lol

  13. Oh my god. I NEED that french toast and sausage. Now, please.

    With restaurants like that in your neighborhood, I can see why you don't cook often!

  14. I drove past that place once and thought that I should give it a try. Those pics now confirm!

  15. Omg, I must try this place!

  16. I can honestly say you are one of the ugliest people I have ever seen (inside & out). If I had to look at your face in the mirror every day, I'd take time out of my uneventful day to fuck with people I don't even know too, because I'd be miserable.... & misery loves company. If my only exitement in life was stuffing my fat face, I'd jump off a bridge, so I am beginning to understand why you did what you did.
