This morning I headed for the Fortitude Valley in Brisbane to catch up with my good friends Andrew and Anthony at a french cafe and restaurant called Les Amis. Meaning 'the friends', I thought it was a very appropriate venue :) It is always so great to catch up with them, and what better a way to catch up than over good food and coffee first thing in the morning!
Andrew ordered the French toast with crispy bacon and maple syrup ($10.50) and devoured every tasty morsel in no time.
Anthony had the Sweetcorn and potato hashcakes with wilted spinach and poached eggs ($12.50). He enjoyed it, but remarked that the cakes, although delicious and not oily, could have been a little crisper on the outside.
For me - the Pancakes with cherry compote and vanilla mascarpone ($12.50). They were good pancakes, but I felt that a little maple syrup could have helped as the cherries were quite tart and the mascarpone was unsweetened.
The coffee was excellent, so I asked a waiter what sort it was and I was delighted to hear it was Campos. I didn't know Campos had arrived in Brisbane so that was a nice surprise. We had 2 rounds of coffee - there was a lot of chatting and catching up to be done!
So, all in all a lovely breakfast at Les Amis avec mes amis!
