Did someone say perfectly seasoned crispy shoelace thin fries for breakfast? That's what the other travel bunnie had on our recent breakfast affair at Crosstown Eating House and it sure was one of the best we've had in a while.
To be honest, Crosstown faces tough competition with the ever so popular Pearl Cafe located just across the street and they sure do a great job being unique.
The restaurant is spacious and we were given a few seating options, their courtyard seemed quiet and that's where we sat. The service was great, very prompt but not pushy. A pot of hot English Breakfast tea and an aromatic latte were delivered to our table within 5 minutes.
We had already looked at the breakfast menu the night before after our dinner at E'cco, which means that we wasted no time in deciding what to put into our tummies that morning. I hadn't had french toast for a long time as the last one I had didn't live up to standards, but my sweet tooth made me order their French toast, honeyed ricotta, fresh strawberries and coulis ($15) and O.M.G it was good. So good that I could just eat it all day! It wasn't overly sweet and the honeyed ricotta provided great texture to the dish.
The other travel bunnie went a lil' crazy and ordered the bacon and egg roll, bbq sauce, fries and aioli ($15.5). Mmm... it was a great choice. I kept asking the other travel bunnie to look the other way and every time he turned back, some fries would go missing (ahem... I didn't steal them I swear, it was the boogy man... or a hungry bunnie).
Crosstown Eating House provided us a wholesome, delicious breakfast. It was just what we needed and left us happy for the rest of the day.
Total Bunnie Dollars Spent: $38.
