3.5. I’ve been here a few times now for brunch at the weekend. Good selection of items on the menu, including vegetarian options. I usually go for the vegetarian omelette, this changes seasonally so sometimes is a lot better than other times depending on what ingredients they add. The portion size is decent and price reasonable. They have outdoor seating which is great, though the metal seats are a bit rickety. Need to try the galettes next time!
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.
