First Trip to Rue Cler

This morning I went to Rue Cler for the first time. I enjoyed probably one of the best brunches that I can remember. I had an excellent latte and Œufs Rue Cler, which is close to eggs benedict. It's toasted French bread topped with ham, poached eggs, asparagus and bernaise sauce. All of the proportions were perfect. It could not have been better.

This was also my first experience eating hot beignets. Now I understand why everyone is so wild about them!

Rue Cler is in such a great location downtown. It's a lovely place to walk around, particularly if the weather is as nice as it was today. I was very pleased to see that the sidewalks downtown are now very wheelchair accessible.


  1. You should try the duck confit crepe they do for lunch. Absolutely out of this world.

  2. I came very close to ordering it. :)
