Having recently come back from a trip to Europe, I was in the mood for something with a French twist. I’m glad I got to try L’assiette, which was a comfortable spot for 1:30 on a Monday arvo and was surprisingly affordable for a Britomart eatery. Since the crêpe place in Elliott street closed down, I tried the vegetarian galette here to see if it could serve as a replacement. I’m happy to report that we have a winner in L’assiette. The crêpe itself was deliciously crispy with hints of garlic. The cream sauce not overpowering, mushrooms were aplenty, and you get salad as well. Overall, it was tasty and filling – especially for only $15. Their menu is extensive for a café, and their cabinet desserts look tempting. Next time I'd love to try a croque-monsieur or a full breakfast meal with a cup of Altezzano Brothers coffee. Their pain perdu (French toast with cinnamon crème fraiche) sounds amazing, and I overheard another customer fangirling over the aioli that came with her fries.
Came in for my annual late birthday brunch with my friend. Ordered the le vegan and la galette de pommes de terre with bacon. The portobello mushrooms were very soft and the beetroot had so much flavour to it. Tomatoes were extremely juicy and sourdough was hard as usual. Bacon was crispy. Potato and herb hash was soft and flavoured well, not too salty or sweet.
Good food. Very chill place to eat in the busy city. I had the vegan item on their menu and it was amazing. The staff are also friendly. We had the grabone voucher and saved some $. No regrets on trying this place!
