Café Fanny: Start the Day Off Right!
Ah…poached eggs and café au lait in bowls!
The first time I ever tried a poached egg was at this quaint little café. Cooked on the outside, runny on the inside. Garnished with salt, pepper, and fresh herbs. Placed atop thick slices of toasted acme brand bread.
I have yet to poach an egg at home that tastes as good as the poached egg at Café Fanny. Maybe it is because of the whole experience of dining outside on wooden tables with a big bowl of milky, frothy coffee sitting next to me! I have a thing for holding a mug filled with hot liquid—it is just so comforting!
The homemade granola is famous! It will leave anyone satisfied for hours!
And the buckwheat crepes? Simple, beautiful, and scrumpdidiliumtious!
The orange juice is so fresh! The moment I sip it my eyes brighten up and I feel alert and ready to start the day!
The whole motto of this café is to evoke an ideal reality where life and work are inseparable and the daily pace leaves time for afternoon leisure. Eating together nourishes the spirit as well as the body.
It really makes a difference to take the time to sit down and casually enjoy a meal—I feel more satiated and complete. My body tingles with good sensations when I know I have eaten a good meal with good company.
I would definitely recommend this place to go have a laugh with friends, catch up with mom, go on a date, and/or fly solo for a bite to eat and a good ol’ people watching session!
