Breakfast at Sel et Poivre, Darlinghurst

Sel et Poivre is one of my favourite French restaurants in Sydney. I have had many good meals here and have recommended it to a couple of my friends. I have never had their breakfast though, so was keen to try it, and they were open at 7am which was perfect for B and I.

The menu is very French – croissants, baguettes, brioche French toast. B and I picked the most non-French thing on the menu. B’s not big on eggs, she doesn’t like poached eggs, the sight of yolk oozing make her sick and well I have had my quota and really shouldn’t be eating anymore. I am not big on sweet breakfast, so would never order French toast or pancakes, unless ‘The Mother’ orders it and I will have a taste. I prefer something savoury to start with.

I love how the coffee is served in a bowl – French style, like when I was in Paris. It was HUGE and the coffee was smooth with strong aroma. I didn’t think I could drink so much coffee – I really shouldn’t be surprised of my ability – and managed to drink it all.

B opted for the organic muesli with grated apple and honey yogurt. The serving of muesli was generous, however, there weren’t enough yogurt. We did ask for more yogurt and they were more than happy to give us more. The muesli I thought was nice, but nothing to rave about. The yogurt was deliciously sweet and creamy, infused with honey flavour. I thought at first that it might be sickly sweet but I was pleasantly surprised.

I had something healthy also – I have eaten so much on the weekend that I really needed something light! Ordered the orgy of fresh sliced fruits with honey yogurt and granola. Fresh mix of strawberries, apple, rockmelon, watermelon, and pineapple. Not a lot of granola though, but that was probably a good thing!  It was delectably refreshing and exactly what I needed after a weekend of heavy and rich eating!

There was only one waiter at that hour, the place was quite, however, as we were leaving at about 8 ish more people started to rock up. I thought breakfast was nice, but nothing to rave about.

I do recommend the dinner though, it is sensational!

As always, it was good to catch up with B and catch up on the latest goss!

GA’s rating: 6.5 / 10 – dinner is infinitely better!

    i’ve had dinner there and the atmosphere is great and very French but I prefer La Brassiere or Bistro Papillon for their French food. 🙂

    That coffee looks sooo inviting! I too love it served in the large bowl/wide cup. It somehow tastes better that way. That and a croissant…. perfect breakfast!
