This post is long overdue. I forgot that I forgot to tell you about my favourite brunch place with my favourite guy! Medical School budgets don't have much give but Justin always seems to find ways to spoil me. His latest extravagance took us to the sweet little cafe´ called Le Papillion.
Located on Morne Rouge Road in Grand Anse, this little nook of the Siesta Hotel offers a quiet, classy place to enjoy a numerous selection of unique dishes.
Note: the actual hours are 7am-2pm. An advertising mistake I came to rue on several occasions.
My first exposure to Le Papillion came last term via the Significant Other Organization breakfast club. Almost twenty of us attended. The friendly atmosphere and presence of espressos and Earl Grey tea provided an opportunity to mingle with new friends and catch up with old ones.
The menu presents variety and something for even the pickiest of eaters. Don't be afraid to ask the server about their dishes. I didn't know what a Croque Madam contained before inquiring! The staff always have smiles and good taste in menu choices. When in doubt, ask your friendly neighbourhood server.
My date with Justin mixed friendship and romance beautifully, especially paired with spiced French toast and cristophene crepes.
Both dishes matched wonderfully with local papaya preserves and sorrel jelly.
Justin's cappuccino was served in the most hilarious mug I have seen in Grenada. Surprisingly, it is an accurate representation of this little island. Next time I go I will request this mug. You should, too.
The owner of Le Papillion constantly snaps pictures of patrons for their growing collection of online photos. She graciously photographed our time together for my growing collection.
Justin and I had a lovely time. Two hours of chatting and laughing does the soul good. Good food only makes a great time even better.
If you're in Grenada, stop by and visit. You can find their facebook page here.
