Brunch at Le Diplomate

Ok – double post today! But, this morning we went to the most amazing brunch of my life ever (maybe just thus far 🙂 ) at Le Diplomate in Logan Circle. I have been waiting and waiting for this place to open and when I saw that the ladies over at Bitches who Brunch had reviewed it and given it an A I was so excited to try it!

I also knew it was on the pricey side, so I was saving up, because if I was going to go, I was going to go all out!

So, we started with the basics: coffee for Ben, black tea + a brunch cocktail — the Pamplemousse Presse — for me 😉 .

A delicious bread basket arrived at the table as well and then we ordered the breakfast pastries, which are baked in-house (so OMG!).

We also ended up ordering a side of the pommes frites (which were french fries not potatoes), and overkill, but tasty none the less.

Finally, for our main dishes, I got the Eggs Norwegian and Ben got the Steak & Eggs.
