Review: Salade de Fruits

by gigi on November 5, 2007

Victoria, Connie, and I went to Salade de Fruits at 1551 W. 7th Ave in Vancouver for brunch one weekend. It is a little French bistro tucked away in the French Cultural Centre. It was a bit tricky finding the entrance to the restaurant because you go in through the cultural centre doors.

Once we were at the entrance, we were greeted in French by a friendly server. The menu was also in French, so this was a good opportunity for me to practice my limited French skills. :) The server will also help you navigate the menu if you are having trouble.

Both Victoria and I chose the crepe of the day, which was spinach. You also have a choice of potatoes or salad for your side dish. We decided on the salad, which came in a light lemon dressing and was very tasty. The crepes came in two rolls and was stuffed with spinach and a creamy cheese sauce. Even though it was only two fairly small crepes, the filling was so rich that we were both full after eating this. There was also a small selection of fruit with our crepes.

Connie settled on the ham omelet, which was the omelet of the day. Her dish cost the same as ours ($7.95) and was a great value. Along with the omelet, she also had a lamb sausage, potatoes, a slice of baguette, and fruit. The omelet was layered generously with cheese and ham.

I also ordered a hot chocolate with my crepes. The chocolate wasn’t as rich as I would have liked and was a bit lukewarm.

I would definitely come back for brunch again. The dishes were light and a great way to start your day. They also have set dinner menus for $21.99, which I would love to try out sometime.
