If you've come here just for coffee, you can't go wrong with Toby's Estate's signature GIBRALTAR. Not for the occasional coffee lover. Strong coffee is an acquired taste. The more you love coffee, the stronger you want it.
I may have started right with this strong brew, but it was way past breakfast nor brunch. Lunchtime it was. But brouílle (ends like ratatouille?) is a perfect match as breakfast or brunch item with a glass (not cup) of Gibraltar.
We ordered Pistou and French Onion Soups. A cup of each is quite filling. I could have shared my Pistou which was peppery as Onion Soup was cheesy.
What's lovely with a date with good friends is we can order more dishes to share. You bet I didn't just settle for brouílle but also shared the Patty Melt, Chicken and Salad among the 4 of us.
Our verdict? Or perhaps, my verdict? Patty Melt was good. The brouílle was ordinary as lunch item, but should be ideal for breakfast or day starter. As for the salad and chicken, we enjoyed them but not exactly that memorable.
What saved the day for us? Carmen's Ice Cream! Never fails. :)
