Le Paddock's under $10 brunch menu is well worth a look-see...
As a rule I typically don't brunch in the Slope much anymore. The places get crowded. Brunch is expensive. And waiting to eat when you have a hungry toddler in tow isn't awesome for us or the people around us. For quality sub $10 brunches we typically head in the direction of Ditmas Park. Mimi's Hummus and the Farm on Adderly are favorites. And recently we discovered the wonders of Brancaccio's in Kensington.
Le Paddock on Prospect Ave and Reeve in Windsor Terrace combines a charming French bistro with down to earth prices. Here's le menu...
EGGS BENEDICT: poached eggs with Canadian bacon, hollandaise, roasted sweet potatoes 8.95
EGGS FLORENTINE: poached eggs with spinach, hollandaise, roasted sweet potatoes 8.95
EGGS NORWEGIAN: poached eggs with smoked salmon, hollandaise, roasted sweet potatoes 8.95
BAKED EGGS: two eggs baked in cast iron pan with feta, ratatouille and herbs 8.95
FRENCH TOAST with Fresh Fruit and maple syrup 8.95
EGGS ANY STYLE with bacon, roasted sweet potatoes and toasts 8.95
PANCAKES with Fresh Fruit and maple syrup 8.95
OMELETTE OF THE DAY 8.95
You can upgrade any of the above with American coffee, fresh squeezed orange juice, Sake Mary or Mimosa for 12.95. They also have a few a la carte brunch options like, including a Croque-Madame (aka an open faced sandwich with ham, gruyere, bechamel, fried egg) for 9.95.
We were pleased with our trip to Le Paddock for dinner and brunch didn't disappoint. It's hard to beat a good Croque-Madame. How could you go wrong with melty cheese, salty ham, topped with a perfectly fried egg. Open faced sandwich bliss.
I'm looking forward to making a return trip to try more of the brunch menu.
